The Texas Rangers have three prospects playing in the Puerto Rican Winter League on the Cangrejeros: Right-handed pitcher Grant Anderson, Outfielder Kellen Strahm and Infielder Chris Seise.

Grant Anderson

Grant Anderson had a really solid season while in Frisco. He pitched to a 5-0 win-loss record with a 2.80 earned run average in 54.2 innings coming out of the pen. He was promoted to Triple-A Round Rock on August 28, 2022.

While with Round Rock he posted a 6.39 earned run average in 12.2 innings. Although the numbers in Triple-A don’t look as nice, if you take away his first outing where he allowed five runs in two innings pitched against the Dodgers, the numbers aren’t that bad. Taking away the first outing, he pitched 10.2 innings with a 3.38 earned run average.

Chris Seise

Chris Seise, 24 in January, slashed a line of .246/.319/.384/.703 with 10 home runs and 46 RBI in 93 games with the High-A Hickory Crawdads.

Kellen Strahm

Strahm, 25, was an on-base machine for Frisco and played a big part in the RoughRiders Championship season. Strahm slashed a line of .277/.392/.407/.799 with 10 home runs and 42 RBI in 104 games.

James Jones

Jones, 34, isn’t a prospect but he is playing for the Indios De Mayaguez. Between the ACL, Double-A Frisco and Triple-A Round Rock, Jones had a 4-0 win-loss record with a 3.86 earned run average. Three of those wins came in the ACL and one with the RoughRiders.
