Top 10 Prospect Lists Update: All AL Teams Posted!

If you haven’t been checking out our Prospect site, you don’t know what you’re missing!  Yesterday we wrapped up our Top 10 lists for AL teams with the posting of the Texas Rangers (click here to view).  Once considered one of the top farm systems in the game, things have certainly deteriorated thanks to multiple factors.  That’s not to say that there isn’t potential appeal, but this group is hardly what it once was:

  1. Yohander Mendez – Left-Handed Pitcher
  2. Ariel Jurado – Right-Handed Pitcher
  3. Leody Taveras – Outfielder
  4. Eric Jenkins – Outfielder
  5. Cole Ragans – Left-Handed Pitcher

  1. Sean Reid-Foley – Right-Handed Pitcher
  2. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. – Third Baseman
