Josh Jung is currently the #2 prospect in the Texas organization behind 2021 #1 pick Jack Leiter.  Jung is the most likely prospect to crack the Rangers Opening Day Roster.  If the Rangers trade Isiah Kiner-Falefa prior to the start of the season, 3B is almost a guarantee for Jung.  In 2020, Kiner-Falefa won a Gold Glove at 3B so, he currently has the inside track.  If Jung starts the season at AAA, he will undoubtedly be called up as an injury replacement or a post-trade deadline addition to the Rangers infield.  Worst case scenario, Jung is a September callup when rosters expand.
