Toolsy, middle infielders are thick as thieves in this system. Between Jurickson Profar (SS), Leury Garcia (SS), Luis Sardinas (SS), Rougned Odor (2B), Hanser Alberto (SS), it’s quite possible this is the reason the big club is considering moving Ian Kinsler off second base with Profar knocking on the door and if the others continue to develop making it easier to replace Elvis Andrus at SS if they are unable to sign him in two years. Overall, this is a system going through a transitional phase, but the upside of talent is still one of the best in the game. -Dave England

Arguably, no team has done better internationally than the Texas Rangers. On top of throwing big money at international prospects, the Rangers have done well in the draft, adding quality prospects and depth to a system that never seems to run dry.
