The Texas Rangers have a lot of depth on the farm when it comes to starting pitching. Kent is part of that depth.

He started 2021 with the High-A Hickory Crawdads. He pitched to a 6-2 record with a 2.83 earned run average and had a 1.011 WHIP.

He was promoted to Double-A Frisco and went 0-4 with a 5.34 earned run average in six starts. In 28.2 innings, he struck out 39 (12.2 SO/9) and walked 9.

I would look for him to again start in Frisco.
