Texas Rangers’ 2022 Draft Prospects: INF Jace Jung

Jace Jung‘s older brother is former Texas Tech Red Raider Josh Jung, the Rangers’ No. 1 prospect who was selected with a first round pick in 2019, so Texas knows their way around the Jungs quite well.

Why not add the younger Jung should the opportunity present itself? Jace is plenty talented, demonstrating a plus bat and winning Big-12 Player of the Year, along with a solid glove at second base.

Jace is almost an exact replica of older brother Josh, with many of the same physical traits and playing style. Two Jungs roaming the infield in Arlington would surely be something to see.

Whether he’s there when the Texas Rangers will pick is a legitimate question, but I have to imagine they’ll have Jace Jung high on their board on draft day given how impressed they’ve been with Josh.
