Sebastian Walcott

There is no world where Sebastian Walcott is making the Opening Day roster this year given that he is just 17 years old, has yet to log games above High-A, and plays a position that is firmly occupied by Corey Seager. He also hasn't played much with the big league team this spring. However, that does not mean by any stretch of the imagination that he hasn't made a strong impression in camp.

Walcott's incredible ceiling has been on full display in spring training with Rangers coaches and observers marveling at how well he has performed. He's still incredibly young and will have to learn how to adjust to pro pitchers, who are desperately trying to get him out, but all the indications right now are that he has improved since last season and could become one of the best prospects in baseball before too long.

Grant Anderson

The Rangers' pitching crop in spring training when it comes to fringe guys has left a lot to be desired. Many of the Rangers' arms already have set roles that were established before camp even started, and Texas didn't really go out of the way to bring in that many pitchers capable of making a lot of noise. However, Grant Anderson has quietly put himself in the running for a spot in the Rangers' bullpen with his play this spring.

So far, Anderson has made four scoreless appearances with six strikeouts and no walks in four innings of work. It's a small sample to be sure, and the late innings are pretty well spoken for by the existing bullpen, but don't be shocked if the Rangers decide that Anderson deserves a shot at some big league innings.
