With roughly two weeks remaining of 2016 Spring Training, the Texas Rangers farm system is showing they earned the number seven spot in Baseball America’s organization rankings.
Few organizations have had as consistently great management as Texas; the team is always anticipating the arrival of at least one high-profile prospect. Their top three prospects, 22-year-old infielder Joey Gallo, 21-year-old outfielder Lewis Brinson, and 20-year-old outfielder Nomar Mazara, respectively.
They are all having phenomenal springs. Gallo is batting .333 with three homers, Brinson is batting .353 with one homer, and Mazara is batting .379 with a home run. Collectively, the trio is batting .357 in 70 at-bats. With that in mind, here is each player’s highlight of spring training (so far).
Top-Prospect Joey Gallo absolutely demolished a homer into the parking lot of Temple Diablo Stadium in a March 13th game against the Angels.
Outfielder Lewis Brinson hit a walk-off home run just a couple days ago, in a high-profile game at the Alamodome against defending World Series champions, the Kansas City Royals.
Nomar Mazara starting spring training with an absolutely beautiful homer on March second. I covered this just a couple weeks ago, but here it is again. Unfortunately, Mazara left yesterday’s game after fouling a ball off of his foot. He is listed as day-to-day.
