Photo by Tom Pennington/ Keith Law’s top 20 Texas Rangers prospect list is out today Keith Law’s 2021 Texas Rangers top 20 prospect list is out at the Athletic today. Leody Taveras and Josh Jung are 1 and 2, which we knew from Leody’s inclusion at #44 on Keith’s top 100 list, and Jung’s inclusion on the “just missed” list.

One Ranger on Keith Law top 100 list

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ The Rangers have just a single prospect on Keith Law’s latest top 100 list Keith Law’s 2021 top 100 prospect list is out, and the Texas Rangers place just a single player on the list — center fielder Leody Taveras, who comes in at #44 on Keith’s list.
