6-7: Defense First, Offense Coming

In the six and seven spots, I have Ronald Guzman and Josh Jung.

Guzman has the makings of being a great gap-power guy, not to mention his ability to pick it with the best of them at first base.

Good grief man, how does a guy that big do the splits that easy?

He has played well in winter ball so far and has yet another opportunity to win first base for good.

The recent acquisition of Nate Lowe from the Rays will present some competition, but I think Guzman wins the job.

Next, the top rated prospect in the system, Josh Jung.

He’s inevitably going to get a shot next season. I predict by early June that he’ll be in the big leagues.

Will he be the next great Rangers’ third baseman since Adrian Beltre? No one knows, but we’ll soon see for ourselves.
