#3 3B Josh Jung, Hickory Crawdads (A)
Jung, 21, was the Texas Rangers first-round pick in this year’s MLB draft and was a terrific hitter at Texas Tech. He has plus potential at the plate, and on defense. He has torn it up in his short time in the Rangers farm system, going 10-17 in his four games in the AZL league, and has gone 3-8 since his call-up. It’s safe to say that he has been terrorizing opposing pitchers thus far, and he could become the first player from this draft class to be called up to the majors.
#2 OF Leody Taveras, Frisco Roughriders (AA)
Taveras, the 20-year-old outfielder has been on the Rangers prospect watch for years, now. He has gobs of potential and is the closest of the players on this list to the majors. Defensively, he is ready to be a plus defender in the MLB, but his bat is still shy of the MLB level. He got to repeat Down East where he tore it up, hitting .294, and struggled some out of the gate in Frisco, but has since upped his average to .247.
