#5 OF Bubba Thompson, Down East Wood Ducks (A+)

Thompson was the first pick that the Texas Rangers made in their 2017 draft class. The 21-year-old Thompson had a terrific season last year in Hickory (A), but he has struggled so far this season, hitting just .145, and has missed about three months due to injury. He has the potential to be an excellent fielder with plus-plus speed to go with an above-average bat and power. He’s only played 18 games in A+ this season, so hopefully, he can end the season with a strong second half to potentially move up the list.

#4 RHP Cole Winn, Hickory Crawdads (A)

Winn, 19, was the Rangers first-round pick in 2018 and did not pitch after being drafted. When he finally took the mound for the Rangers, he struggled through his first few outings, but over his last four, he has allowed just three runs in 17 innings with five walks and 14 strikeouts. He is expected to develop four really good pitches, and he could become the first high school pitcher from the 2018 draft to make it to the majors.
