3 Texas Rangers prospects dominating spring training so far
3. Davis Wendzel
How do you make the Texas Rangers’ decision about who to play at third base this season more difficult? By playing well in spring training! And Davis Wendzel has done just that early on.
Wendzel, hitting .462 with a 1.346 OPS in a handful of spring at-bats so far, is placing himself firmly in the mix at third base, where the team is having somewhat of an open competition in the aftermath of top prospect Josh Jung’s injury.
The former Baylor Bear has always had a knack for hitting the baseball and his versatility has served him well throughout his Rangers minor league journey. But with the strong performance he’s having so far in Arizona, Wendzel could be fast-tracking his path to the big leagues.
It’s still expected that some combination of Andy Ibanez, Brad Miller and Charlie Culberson could man the hot corner for now, but Wendzel has been making a lot of noise to this point. Perhaps enough where he merits serious consideration for the big leagues right out of camp.
