With the Texas Rangers 2020 campaign more about development of youth than competing for a playoff spot, which prospects might we see in September?

The mindset for the Texas Rangers this season has shifted from looking to sneak into the expanded playoff format to now, looking at what the club has in their system with an eye to the future. The shift in focus has been evident with Jose Trevino being made the starting catcher for the club and Isiah Kiner-Falefa able to secure an everyday role at third moving forward. Ronald Guzman was recalled to compete for the job at first base and has looked stellar while doing so.

Top prospects Leody Taveras and Anderson Tejeda also made their first leaps into the big leagues this season and have been impressive in Arlington. On the pitching side, Kyle Cody has gotten work as a reliever and a starter while Wes Benjamin and John King have also made their foray into the show. With numerous other young players in the mix, this trio of prospects could be next to make their jump to the MLB.
