The Texas Rangers have released the Frisco RoughRiders 2021 roster. Let me just say, to start the season, this ranks among the best opening day rosters for the RoughRiders.
The rotation will be headlined by right-hander Cole Winn (#5), who was the Rangers 2018 first-round selection. Hans Crouse, 2nd round pick in 2017, A.J. Alexy and Yerry Rodriguez round out the fantastic rotation.
The roster features thirteen pitchers, eleven are right-handed. The pitchers are:
- AJ Alexy
- Noah Bremer
- Tim Brennan
- Hans Crouse
- Scott Engler
- Joe Gatto
- Jake Latz
- Sal Mendez
- Fernery Ozuna
- Tyler Phillips
- Yerry Rodriguez
- Alex Speas
- Cole Winn
Age: 23 | Height: 6’4 | Weight: 195 | Throws: Right
The Rangers acquired Alexy from the Dodgers in the Yu Darvish trade.
Age: soon to be 25 | Height: 6’5 | Weight: 206 | Throws: Right
The Rangers drafted Bremer in the 6th round of the 2017 draft.
AJ Alexy, Tyler Phillips and Yerry Rodriguez are all listed on the Rangers 40-man roster.
We have three catchers listed. Melvin Novoa, Jordan Procyshen and Matt Whatley. Procyshen is the only one that bats left-handed.
- Melvin Novoa
- Jordan Procyshen
- Matt Whatley
Whatley was drafted by the Rangers in the third round of the 2017 draft.
This infield group is talented. We’ve got Sherten Apostel, Jax Biggers, Ryan Dorow and Davis Wendzel.
- Sherten Apostel
- Jax Biggers
- Ryan Dorow
- Davis Wendzel (1st rd pick 2019, 41st)
Jax Biggers hits from the left side of the plate.
If any balls are lucky enough to get through the infield, we have a pretty good group of outfielders. Not much will drop in between these guys patrolling the outfield.
- Julio Pablo Martinez
- Josh Stowers
- Bubba Thompson
- Steel Walker
