|ESPN Insider Keith Law joins Ben and Skin to discuss the Texas Rangers and his MLB Prospect Rankings, which features Jurickson Profar at No. 1.
But he noted that outfielder Lewis Brinson, who he ranks fifth among the Rangers' top 10 prospects, is a sleeper. Here's part of what he said about Brinson:
Larry Goren/Four Seam Images/AP ImagesESPN.com's Keith Law ranks OF Lewis Brinson fifth among Rangers prospects.
I was blown away by the changes Lewis Brinson made to his swing over the summer, setting up his hands a little lower and further back while shortening his stride, significantly improving his bat speed through the zone without any loss of power.
Brinson played in the Arizona League in 2012 and hit .283 with seven homers and 42 RBIs with 14 stolen bases in 54 games. He turns 19 in May.
Law had four Rangers in his top-100, as we discussed on Tuesday. Here's Nos. 6-10 in the Rangers' system, according to Law:
6. OF Nomar Mazara
7. 3B Joey Gallo
8. C Jorge Alfaro
9. SS Luis Sardinas
10. RHP Luke Jackson
