The Texas Rangers have been stockpiling pitching prospects through the draft and by trading away impending free agents.

By using 2021 stats, I am going to give you my rankings of the Top 10 pitching prospects in the Texas Rangers Organization.

Pitchers who did not pitch in 2021 will NOT be included in these rankings.  What does this mean?  Top prospect, Jack Leiter, did not pitch at any professional level in 2021 and therefore will not be in my rankings until he proves himself at the professional level.

Here are my Top 10 pitching prospects, based on 2021 MILB stats. (All stats are from www.milb.com)

Ranking the the pitching prospects in the Texas Rangers organization

#1: Cole Winn

Draft: 2018, Texas Rangers, Round 1, #15 Overall

  • Age: 21
  • 2021 MILB Teams: AA/AAA
  • GP: 21
  • GS: 21
  • W-L: 4-3
  • IP: 86.0
  • H: 43
  • ER: 23
  • BB: 31
  • SO: 107
  • ERA: 2.41

Cole Winn is on the fast track to Arlington.  He recently completed his second year of MILB baseball and made it all the way to AAA.  Winn also earned the 2021 Nolan Ryan Pitcher of the Year Award, awarded to the organization’s top minor league starting pitcher.

For his MILB career, Winn has started 39 games and has an 8-7 record to go along with a 3.32 ERA and 172 SO in 154.2 innings.

Winn will likely start the year at AAA but, will likely make his debut in Texas at some point in 2022.
