After back-to-back American League Championship seasons, the Texas Rangers are no longer a secret. They're clearly one of the best teams in all of Major League Baseball.
What might still be under the radar, however, is just how good the Texas Rangers are from top to bottom. In other words, the Rangers boast not only an excellent team at the big league level, but also have elite-level talent down throughout their farm system.
Ranked by Baseball America as having the best minor league system in the game, their cache of top flight talent might have gotten even stronger with their prospect haul in this past June's first-year player draft.
Here's a look at the Rangers' top 10 prospects with an estimated time of arrival for their respective big league debuts.
Note: Any prospect that has already had a cup of coffee in the big leagues—Justin Grimm, Martin Perez, Tanner Scheppers, Mike Olt, etc—I have excluded for brevity as well as the notion that I no longer consider them prospects as they have already ascended to the heights of big league play.
