The 2021 All Star and Futures Games

Adolis Garcia and Kyle Gibson are likely to represent the Texas Rangers in the 2021 All Star Game, but all eyes are on pitchers Cole Winn and Cole Ragans in the futures game.

With the news that prospect pitchers Cole Winn and Cole Ragans will represent the Texas Rangers in the 2021 Futures Game at Coors Field in Colorado, it’s time to get excited about the future of this team.

Winn has dominated AA Frisco as Texas’ No. 3 prospect and looks to be moving towards an MLB debut in 2022. Ragans is a less heralded but still impressive prospect on the comeback trail, throwing really well at A Hickory this minor league season.

Both of these pitchers will have an opportunity to showcase their stuff on a national stage at the Futures game in Colorado. In fact, the Rangers are the only team in the AL to have two of their pitchers selected for the contest, which is no small feat.

It’s about time Texas’ farm system added some respect to its name, and Winn and Ragans will get a chance to show the baseball world how special they are and how important they both will be in resurrecting a rebuilding organization.
