Usually, when a team enters its championship window, its farm system takes a bit of a hit, and fans tend to take their eye off what’s happening at the minor league level.

For Texas Rangers fans, that is not the case. 

Despite winning its first-ever World Championship in November, the Rangers farm system still has many promising prospects that will keep Texas contending for a long time. 

With that being said, let’s look at some of those future stars. Here are my top five Rangers prospects entering the 2024 season. 

1. Evan Carter – This one needs no explanation however, I’m going to explain it anyway.

If you’re hitting third in the World Series and still considered a “prospect” then you should be the top prospect in all of baseball. 

Carter came up last September and tore up the MLB at the end of the season. In just 62 at-bats, Carter hit .307 with 5 home runs and 12 RBI while getting on base at a .412 clip. 

If you think that’s impressive, Carter went on to slash .300/.417/.500 in the playoffs and oh by the way, he’s just 21 years old. 

Combined all that and you’ve got your number one prospect.

2. Wyatt Langford – If it weren’t for a 21-year-old killing the MLB playoffs, Wyatt Langford would easily be the Rangers’ number-one prospect. 

The Rangers’ number four overall pick in this past year’s draft was crushing baseballs at every level of the minor leagues in 2023. Langford slugged a combined .360/.480/.677 with 10 home runs and 30 RBI in 44 games across all levels. 

Langford did receive an invite to big league spring training but as to where he will start the 2024 season has been up for debate amongst Rangers fans this offseason. 

If Langford plays well at Spring Training don’t be surprised to see him crack the Opening Day roster however, in all likelihood he will be starting somewhere in the minor leagues.

3. Brock Porter – Here is where things get not-so-obvious and in my third spot I have Brock Porter coming in just ahead of Sebastian Walcott.  

The Rangers drafted Porter in the 4th round of the 2022 draft after many teams passed on him because they did not have the money to pry him away from his commitment to Clemson. 

Porter made 21 starts at Down East (A) last year putting up a 2.47 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP in just over 69 innings pitched. 

Due to the setbacks of Jack Leiter and Cole Winn, Porter has become the Rangers’ number-one pitching prospect. 

Don’t be surprised at all if Brock Porter shoots up the Rangers minor league system in 2024. 

The main reason I chose to rank Brock Porter ahead of Sebastian Walcott was due to the fact that Porter seems that he will be more big-league ready a lot sooner than Walcott who is only 17.

4. Sebastian Walcott – It’s not often that a 17-year-old kid has the attention of many prospect rankers but Sebastian Walcott is most certainly an exception. 

Walcott, a native of the Bahamas, might have the most raw talent in the entire Rangers system. 

Across three levels last season, Walcott slashed .246/.335/.471 with 7 home runs in 24 RBI in just 48 games. 

2024 will be an interesting season for Walcott who will be in his first full year in the Rangers system. By the end of the year, I wouldn’t be surprised if Walcott saw some time at AA Frisco. 

Walcott won’t be touching Arlington anytime soon but when he does, it could be special. 

5. Justin Foscue – This might be a little bit of a hotter take but at number five I have Justin Foscue.

The Rangers’ 2020 first-round pick slashed .266/.394/.468 with 18 home runs and 84 RBI in 122 games with AAA Round Rock last season. 

A large reason why I put Foscue on this list is because I think he has a good shot at making the team out of camp if he impresses. 

Foscue can play both corner outfield spots and every infield position except catcher. That combined with the Rangers not having a true DH makes Foscue an attractive option for Texas. 

 

Throughout the years, many people have mentioned Foscue’s name in trade conversations however, he still may have something to give the Rangers.
