With just a few games to go this spring, the Texas Rangers have used their fair share of prospects. Here are the top five that stood out the most.
Nick Williams gave the organization something to think about after hitting two home runs in his first spring training game with the Rangers in just two at-bats. He also drove in three runs in that game. In his second game, he ended up going 1-for-3. Talk about making an impression.
In the four games he appeared in this spring, Mendez logged four innings with five strikeouts. He also recorded a save against the Oakland Athletics earlier in March. Mendez has a powerful arm and can reach in the mid-90s with his fastball.
Ronald Guzman played in five games this spring for the Rangers. He was 3-for-10 with two home runs and five RBIs. The 19-year old is still a couple of years away from making the big leagues, the Rangers must be thrilled with his production this spring.
Second baseman Rougned Odor was a non-roster invitee to Spring Training and performed well. Expected to make his major league debut this season, Odor went 5-for-17 in 10 games this spring. Injuries could force him to make his debut earlier than expected.
Michael Choice was on a mission this spring to prove he deserved an opportunity to play everyday for the Rangers. He did not disappoint. Choice has had a tremendous spring and the Rangers have to be thrilled. In 25 games, Choice has gone 22-for-60 with four home runs and 15 RBIs. The decision to keep him on the bench will be a difficult one.
