2017-04-28 13:30:00 (link to chat)Texas' Josh Morgan us intriguing. Do you see them continuing to develop him as a C-IF?
(Pietro Crespi from Macondo)
Morgan is intriguing, and they're doing the same thing with Isiah Kiner-Falefa, I believe. It seems like there's the potential to generate something useful out of a guy with those skills, but Austin Barnes is kinda the posterboy for that and so far we've seen him be used as a generic backup catcher...sooo...yeah (Craig Goldstein)
2016-08-15 22:00:00 (link to chat)What does Josh Morgan provide to a big league team?
(Hank from LA)
A quality bat and some positional versatility around the infield. He's a guy I held off on writing up a full report on earlier in the year, as I'd like to see what he looks like next week when I catch him again. He's young and lacks a standout skill, but he's a solid player without major weakness (outside of over-the-fence pop). (Wilson Karaman)
2016-04-25 23:00:00 (link to chat)How much longer do you think Texas lets Andy Ibanez slaughter Sally pitching?
(MonkeyEpoxy from Tex)
Sorry for the fashionably late arrival, my daughter was nighthawkin' tonight. Well with a player like him there are often other factors involved that'll play a primary role in his schedule, chief among them assimilation. High Desert also has Demeritte at second along with De Leon, Profar, and probably Josh Morgan at some point to get reps there. The MI depth in that org is pretty impressive. (Wilson Karaman)
2016-04-25 23:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you see moving up to occupy the top tier of Rangers position prospects once the big-3 of Brinson, Mazara, and Gallo graduate to the bigs? Guys like Cordell, Ronald Guzman, Andy Ibanez, etc. have looked good to start the season.
(Kristen from Canada)
I think Tate's start to the year has to be seen as very encouraging. Leody Taveras is only 17, but initial reports have been intriguing. I missed Jairo Beras last week, he was out with an injury, but look forward to seeing what him in the next few weeks, and it's supposed to be an interesting bat. I liked some of the things Travis Demeritte can do, though the hit tool's a big question mark. I'll have notes up on him this week. Michael De Leon's glove is outstanding, and Josh Morgan shows interesting versatility and skills.

Basically you're going to see the system morph from a troika of 60+ OFP guys at the top to one that's more balanced around arms and positional depth. (Wilson Karaman)
2016-04-19 12:00:00 (link to chat)Any interesting under-the-radar prospects you see in the Rangers' loaded system this year? Was thinking Connor Sadzeck and his upper-90's gas could jump into consideration for a place on a mid-season prospect-ranking list or two if he can get his control under control.
(Kristen from Canada)
Sadzek definitely has a big arm, no doubt. He brings a high-velocity fastball from an extra-large, big-league frame. However, health, control, and the development of secondary pitches have been hurdles for him throughout his professional career.

I'm not saying these guys I'll list are superstars in the making, but I would throw out names like Sam Wolff (RHP), Drew Robinson (numerous positions in the infield), Ryan Cordell (maybe not an 'under the radar' guy at this point--outfielder), and Josh Morgan (infield, possibly catcher?) into the 'under the radar' mix as well.

The Rangers are an elite scouting and player development group. This is a system with plenty of players that you could like as a scout that aren't particularly known to the public. (Adam McInturff)
