#1 RHP Hans Crouse, Hickory Crawdads (A)

Crouse, 20, is looking like a huge steal from the 2017 draft, as he fell to the Texas Rangers at 66, and has dominated so far through the majors. Crouse has the potential for a plus-plus fastball and a plus slider. He just needs to develop a second pitch, and improve his control a bit to become a true ace. His 3.71 ERA this season is a bit misleading to how good he has really been. Prior to allowing seven runs earlier this month, his ERA was at 2.82, and he rebounded well in his most recent start, pitching four shutout innings.

He has true potential to become the future ace for the Rangers and be someone who fans should keep a close eye on how he develops.
