Texas Rangers: 5 Josh Jung injury replacements
5. Justin Foscue
Are you intrigued?
Foscue, the Texas Rangers’ first round pick in 2020, shot up organizational prospect rankings last season after absolutely demolishing the minor leagues with his bat. First, it was High-A Hickory, where his power was on full display. Then, it was AA Frisco, where he cooled down from his torrid pace at Hickory, but still flashed those polished bat skills that made him a first rounder in 2020.
A second baseman by trade, Foscue did play third base in college, so he has experience at the position. Foscue also has more pop than Jung, but both do possess an offensive-minded approach to the game. At the very minimum, Foscue will get an invite to big league spring training when that happens, putting him in the conversation here, if nothing else. More than likely, however, he will be in the minors to start 2022.
There is a chance he could end up forcing his way up to Arlington sometime this season, though.
