It’s been a joyous last few days for the Texas Rangers and their fans. And with the team making big waves in free agency ($561 million of them!), that joy is more than justifiable.

The fans aren’t the only ones who are elated about what has transpired in Arlington recently, though.

Jack Leiter, the team’s No. 1 prospect according to MLB Pipeline, took to Instagram to share his approval of the Rangers’ signings of Marcus Semien and Corey Seager to massive deals.

If there’s any player in this organization who you’d want to be happy, it’s Leiter. After all, he’s arguably the most exciting pitching prospect Texas has had in years. Talents like him are hard to come by a lot of the time.

Though the No. 2 overall pick from the 2021 draft likely won’t reach the majors until 2023, it’s important to start setting the core that will surround the talented young hurler when he arrives. Semien and Seager look to be two pieces of that puzzle.

Leiter is surely looking to cash in himself one day, and he’s got that kind of potential. Therefore, seeing the Rangers dole out the big bucks to premier free agents has to be motivation for the former Vandy ace in hopes of attaining a shiny extension from the team.

Oh yeah, we’re going there now.

But seriously, the future is bright for the Texas Rangers with the team’s rising farm system and with coming off the euphoria of luring in some of the game’s best players. Through it all, though, Jack Leiter’s happiness should be paramount to the Rangers. We want him to stay in Arlington for as long as possible.

He’s part of the next generation of Texas Rangers baseball, after all.
