5 bold predictions for the 2022 Texas Rangers

5. At least three top-10 organizational prospects will make their MLB debut this year

Here’s one that will excite Texas Rangers fans: the future is here and it is bright!

It’s fully expected that the team will promote some of their top prospects in the coming years as this rebuild finally starts to bear fruit. And I believe some of these young talents will graduate to the big leagues as soon as this year. Among them should be Cole Winn, Josh H. Smith, Josh Jung (when he returns from injury) and a twist: one of Justin Foscue or Dustin Harris will make their big league debut in 2022.

If I had to guess which of Foscue or Harris will debut this year, my money would be on the latter given his meteoric rise, though Foscue’s tear at High-A Hickory last summer shouldn’t be ignored. Both Foscue and Harris will start this season at AA Frisco, meaning they’re both somewhat close to making it to Arlington.

Next. Grading the Rangers' signings and trades from the off-season. dark

Therefore, by season’s end, don’t be surprised if one of these talented position players makes even just a brief cameo at Globe Life Field in a game.
