2012 Texas Rangers Consensus Top 31 Prospects


I have created a cumulative prospect list for each team based on other (more knowledgeable) peoples’ lists. Each time a prospect appears on a list, he gets a number of points (21 minus his ranking). The prospect with the largest amount of points is ranked first. I will be posting each team once they have been completed by all of my sources. You can find a link to all of the other teams top prospects on the Team Prospects page. Clicking on the links below will take you to the team’s list on each respective site.

Yu Darvish was not eligible for this list, since he was not ranked by everyone. When he appeared on a list, his average ranking was 1.3.

I included another column to the table named “Con. Rank,” which is the consensus overall ranking of each prospect, as compiled by me.
