At least one preseason prediction showed the Texas Rangers as a favorite to win the World Series in 2014. So far, even through injuries they have proven to be a large force to be reckoned with in the AL West. What kind of force is their minor league system however? Take a look at their top five prospects and whether their stock is up or down.
The part where it reads 'stock up' should be bold, double size text and in italics. Gallo is exploding in 2014 so far. He has a .359 average with a 1.348 OPS. That includes 9 home runs, 22 RBI, 3 doubles, 2 triples and 21 runs scored.
Sardinas had 5 RBI in the minors and had done well enough to warrant a call-up to the major league club recently. He is 1 for 2 in his early MLB call-up so it appears his stock will continue to rise.
Choice has been given the chance to show whether or not he can hang out at the MLB level this year. So far he is doing pretty well. The main plus is that his strikeout rate, something that has always been high, is not as high right now. He also has a home run and five RBI.
Though Odor's average is down a little bit at .253, he does have run production on his side with 3 home runs, 7 RBI and 12 runs scored so far in double-A.
With the catching situation being what it is, fans likely would love for Alfaro to be rushed through the system. He is doing just fine at regular pace however. In 2014 he has an average just under .300, 1 home run, 8 RBI and 12 runs scored.
