2021 Bold Prediction Two: Josh Jung will tear it up when he makes his big-league debut with the Texas Rangers this coming season.
The Texas Rangers had many young players make their debuts in 2020.
Expect this trend to continue in 2021, but this time with a big name prospect: third baseman Josh Jung.
Jung, the organization’s first round pick in 2019, has done nothing but thrive since making his professional debut.
Renowned for his plus hit tool and his steady glove at third base, as well as a rocket arm, the former Texas Tech Red Raider has all the qualities a team would desire in their hot corner man of the future.
Jung is expected to begin the year at Double-A Frisco, but if his torrid pace through Texas’ minor league ranks is any indication of what to expect in 2021, the soon to be 23-year-old third baseman will arrive in Arlington sooner rather than later.
He’s hit everywhere he’s been to this point, what would the big leagues be but another stop on this kid’s journey to professional stardom?
