At long last, MLB draft season is nearly upon us! The 2021 MLB Draft is scheduled to take place this July and by all accounts, should be the most important draft for the Texas Rangers in quite some time.
The selection, whoever it may end up being, will end up determining a lot about where the organization believes they are with respect to journeying through a rebuilding process.
Here’s all the info you need to make sure you’re covered ahead of Texas Rangers’ draft day!
Where do the Texas Rangers pick in the 2021 MLB Draft?
The Texas Rangers have the second overall pick, the second time they’ve had that selection in franchise history (1974- Tommy Boggs). So that’s a pretty big deal.
When is the 2021 MLB Draft?
Good question! This year’s MLB draft will take place from Sunday July 11 through Tuesday July 13 from Denver, Colorado. The draft is expected to last 20 rounds over the three days.
Where can I watch the Texas Rangers picking in the 2021 MLB Draft?
Fans can catch all the action on the national vehicle MLB Network beginning at 7 p.m ET (6 p.m CT) on Sunday July 11.
Who will the Texas Rangers select with their first round pick?
This, of course, is a question that will have to wait for an answer until draft day. However, the organization has been linked to multiple high-level prospects from both the high school and collegiate level. These include names like shortstops Marcelo Mayer, Jordan Lawlar and Kahlil Watson, as well as Vanderbilt pitchers Jack Leiter and Kumar Rocker.
Just to be clear, any of these players would be great selections for the Rangers. After all, they haven’t had a chance to add an impact player via this high in the draft in a long time.
Out of the names listed above, keep an even closer eye on Jordan Lawlar, Kahlil Watson and Jack Leiter, as Texas has been specifically connected to those three players.
