Kevin Goldstein ranks Rangers prospects.

I’m working up a report on the signings of Vladimir Guerrero and Khalil Greene, but in the meantime the great Kevin Goldstein has just posted his Top 11 Rangers Prospects feature on the Baseball Prospectus website.  It’s among BP’s wealth of subscriber-only content that I’d encourage you to add to your plate, but I can share this much with you – Kevin’s top 11 (which happen to be the same 11 players as mine, though not in the same order), although you’ll have to check the website to get his provocative commentary:

Five-Star Prospects

1. Neftali Feliz, RHP
2. Martin Perez, LHP
3. Justin Smoak, 1B

Four-Star Prospects

4. Tanner Scheppers, RHP

Three-Star Prospects

5. Jurickson Profar, SS
6. Danny Gutierrez, RHP
7. Mitch Moreland, RF
8. Michael Main, RHP
9. Engel Beltre, CF
10. Wilmer Font, RHP
11. Robbie Ross, LHP

Four More:

12. Miguel Velasquez, OF
13. Kasey Kiker, LHP
14. Max Ramirez, C
15. Guillermo Moscoso, RHP

The Sleeper:

Shawn Blackwell, RHP

I hope you’re a subscriber if for no other reason than to read what Goldstein wrote about Profar.
