Stop me if you have heard this before. Wyatt Langford has been promoted. This time it is to Triple-A Round Rock. The Frisco RoughRiders season ended on Sunday in a loss to the Sod Poodles (Diamondbacks) and soon after, the beat writers reported the news.
Outfielder Wyatt Langford and Jack Leiter, both who rank as top prospects within the Texas Rangers farm system are both promoting.
Jack Leiter has had an up and down season which resulted in him being placed on the Development List two different times to rest up and work out some mechanical things. Since he’s been back, it seems like he has finally turned a corner.
Over Jack Leiter’s last 4 starts in Frisco, he vastly improved the number of free passes he issued. He only issued 4 walks over his last 16.1 innings since being activated from the development list.
Wyatt Langford has torched minor league pitching
Wyatt Langford has played in 39 games and has absolutely torched the pitching he has faced so far.
He’s slashed a line of .359/.471/.697/1.168 with 10 HR, 29 RBI, 30 BB, 28 SO, and 9 SB. After he was drafted 4th overall in the first round by the Rangers, they assigned him to the ACL Rangers and he made his debut on July 28th, then he promoted to High-A Hickory on Aug. 2nd, promoted to Double-A Frisco on September 4th and now he has been promoted to Triple-A Round Rock. I’m not sure I’ve seen a prospect with the Texas Rangers fly through the system so quickly.
