Here is the Rangers 2021 International free agents list. They agreed to deals multiple prospects.
According to reports, the three main prospects that the Rangers signed are outfielder Yeison Morrobel, shortstop Danyer Cuevas and shortstop Yeferson Tenio.
Age: 17 | Bats: L | Throws: L | Position: OF
Signed out of the Dominican Republic. I haven’t seen much as far as scouting reports go on any of these players. What I have seen indicate that Morrobel isn’t likely to develop plus power and doesn’t exactly have plus speed. Notice the words “isn’t likely”? So that means there’s a chance. Baseball America had him ranked # 18 on their International rankings.
Age: 16 | Bats: L | Throws: R | Position: SS
Cuevas is from Venezuela and stands at 6’0 and 175 lbs.
Age: 17 | Bats: B | Throws: R | Position: SS
