MLB Pipeline has unveiled its list of the top 100 prospects in baseball. The spotlight shines brightly on four Texas Rangers prospects, one of which already has a World Series Championship.

Let’s dive into the list Texas Rangers prospects who made the list: Evan Carter, Wyatt Langford, Sebastian Walcott, and Brock Porter.

**Evan Carter: The Savior (#4 BA / #4 BP)** No. 5 MLB Pipeline

Leading the charge is Evan Carter, a dynamic force whose prowess has not gone unnoticed. Ranked at an impressive #4 by both Baseball America and Baseball Prospectus, Carter’s electrifying combination of defense and impressive plate discipline captivated Rangers fans. As he readies himself for the upcoming season, all eyes are on this young talent poised to start on Opening Day.

**Wyatt Langford: (#5 BA / #2 BP)** No.6 MLB Pipeline

Langford, securing the #5 position in Baseball America’s rankings and an even more remarkable #2 in Baseball Prospectus’ list, emerges as a formidable force at the plate. With an impressive journey through the Rangers system, reaching Triple-A in his debut year (’23), Langford boasts an impressive slash line of .360/.480/.677/1.157, along with 10 homers and 30 RBI. Notably, Baseball Prospectus placing Langford above Carter adds an intriguing layer of discussion, given Carter’s pivotal role in the Rangers’ World Series Championship.

**Sebastian Walcott: Ascending the Ranks (#54 BA / #75 BP)** No. 71 MLB Pipeline

Sebastian Walcott makes his mark at #71 in the MLB Pipeline rankings, following #54 in Baseball America’s list and #75 in Baseball Prospectus’ rankings. Walcott’s inclusion in the Top 100 underlines a promising future for this rising star. His initial success in the Arizona Complex League, posting a notable slash line of .273/.325/.525/.849 with 7 home runs and 19 RBI, showcased his talent in his first stint of professional baseball stateside. Despite a brief stint in Hickory with a .154/.313/.231/.543 slash line in 4 games, Walcott remains a prospect to watch, promising updates throughout the season.

**Brock Porter: Emerging at #88**

RHP Brock Porter, a 20-year-old drafted by the Texas Rangers in the 4th round of the 2022 draft, secures the #88 spot on the MLB Pipeline. Convinced with a substantial $3.7 million signing bonus, Porter showcased his prowess on the mound with a 2.47 earned run average in 69.1 innings. Impressively striking out 95 batters and boasting a whip of 1.17, Porter’s fastball can reach up to 100 mph. As he cements his place among the top prospects, Porter is undoubtedly a rising star to keep an eye on in the Rangers’ farm system.
