I am now working on the San Francisco Giants Top 20 prospects list for 2017. The next team in line is the Texas Rangers, to be followed by the Philadelphia Phillies, Boston Red Sox, Pittsburgh Pirates, Chicago White Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers, and the Oakland Athletics.
Use this thread to discuss the Texas Rangers organization. Some possible points for discussion include, but are certainly not limited to:
***The Rangers finished 95-67 in 2016, first place in the American League Western division. What are your expectations for 2017? Do they get past 90 wins again, or is slippage likely?
***Will Rougned Odor ever hit 33 home runs again? What's his season max?
***Nomar Mazara was just 21 years old in '16. What does his slash line look like in the year 2020?
***Jurickson Profar: is there any hope he can live up to the pre-injury expectations?
***I am frankly relieved that Joey Gallo no longer counts as a rookie so I don't have to worry about writing him up any more. What should the Rangers do with him?
***As always, feel free to discuss Rangers prospects in general including your sleepers, or anything else Rangers-oriented.
