It’s just spring training, and yet these games hold so much significance when it comes to evaluating some of the top young players in the Texas Rangers‘ organization.

For a select few early on in Cactus League play, they’ve capitalized on playing time opportunities. And while their stints with the big leaguers may be limited to spring training (at the moment), these three prospects have more than met the eyes in Arizona so far.

3 Texas Rangers prospects dominating spring training so far

1. Josh Smith

He was one of the headliners of the Joey Gallo trade package from the Yankees last summer, and early on in the spring, he’s showing everyone why.

Smith can do it all: he’s got a little speed, pop and of course, great bat-to-ball skills. The latter is what defines him, but all of the other elements combined really make him stand out. In addition, Smith is versatile, being able to play all over the infield as well as some outfield.

No matter how hot Smith gets this spring, it won’t be enough for him to make the big leagues from the jump. But he’s certainly putting himself on a path to an MLB debut sooner rather than later!
