Around the Farm 5/1/19
Welcome to around the farm. I attempt to take us around each game played in the Texas Rangers farm system from the day before.
This is around the farm 5/1/19
There was another prospect of the Rangers that underwent Tommy John surgery today. Owen White was drafted in the 2nd round in 2018. He was on the de-load program that the Rangers are trying for Rookie pitchers out of high school. Maybe they need to reconsider that program.
Then there is this:
