    Texas Rangers Prospects/Minor League Thread

    Post updates on our prospects and who should be called up here.

    I'll start by posting this update on Leonys Martin via ESPNInsider.


    Leonys Martin has reached base in all 12 games at Triple-A Round Rock, showing patience and a good approach. The 24-year-old, however, is also hitting and doing so with authority. He has four 3-hit games to date and is batting .389.

    The Texas Rangers would like to use Josh Hamilton in a corner outfield spot rather than putting him through the rigors of center on a daily basis, but Julio Borbon hasn't developed and Martin had yet to prove he could hit big league pitching. The time for him to get a shot may come soon if he keeps mashing in the Pacific Coast League.

    ESPN Insider's Keith Law scouted Martin last summer and wrote that there are questions about the Cubans swing. Check out what Law had to say about that particular issue, but remember, this was last summer and there's a chance fixes are in effect:

    Ok so this is the part about baseball that I have never cared to learn because it would take alot of scouting and attention to detail.... but if we have Elvis Andrus locked into the SS spot for the foreseeable future and Kinsler locked into the 2B spot for the foreseeable future, what happens with guys like Jurickson Profar? Is it a foregone conclusion at this point that he is just a trade piece?

    Elvis is a free agent in 2015, so he's only guaranteed to be here two more years after this season. I'd assume how Profar develops will determine how important it is to resign or possibly trade Elvis. Also there was some recent talk from Ian after signing his new contract about being willing to change positions (presumably to the OF) in a few years... so its conceivable IF Profar develops well, and the Rangers resign Elvis then all three of them could be on the team.

Is it a foregone conclusion at this point that he is just a trade piece?
    Not necessarily. As much as I love Elvis I only think hes going to be here this year and next year. We will land a pretty good haul for him and after 2013, Profar should be good and ready to take over at SS and is projected to be better than Andrus. Plus Andrus is becoming one of the premiere SS in the game and when his contract is up in after 2014 I fully expect for him to sign with a huge market like New York, LA or Boston. Scott Boras is his agent if that tells you anything.

    I plan on updating those stats every 10 days or so. Will also add prospects to watch out for if they're having great years.

    First of all i want to say great job on making this thread! I love looking at what the farm is doing. I do have a problem with this though. World Series contending teams dont trade away a key member of the team just for a spec waiting in the wings. I want to say i love love love profar and i thinik he could be a star but the honest truth is we just dont know. Smoak was suppose to be the next Tex and he hasnt lived up to expectations. I think we offer elvis an extension before its all said and done. He has improved year after year and is showing some good power this year so far as the ball carries alot more than in years past.

I'd assume how Profar develops will determine how important it is to resign or possibly trade Elvis. Also there was some recent talk from Ian after signing his new contract about being willing to change positions (presumably to the OF) in a few years... so its conceivable IF Profar develops well, and the Rangers resign Elvis then all three of them could be on the team.

    I don't think Elvis will ever hit for power. We'll be lucky to get a solid 10-15 homers from him per year when he's at his peak. That being said, we also don't need him to hit for power.
