2013 Stats: 12-4, 2.25 ERA, 78 SO, 51 BB
Right-handed pitcher Connor Sadzeck spent all of 2013 with the Single-A Hickory Crawdads, leading the team with 12 wins while posting a 2.25 ERA.
Sadzeck is the only player on this list who is considered as a top-20 prospect heading into the season, as he is currently ranked 19th on the list. That being said, the reason he makes this list is because of some of the other players who were ranked ahead of him, particularly Cody Buckel.
Buckel currently sits as the ninth-best prospect in the Rangers' organization despite the fact that he posted a 0-6 record last year with a 21.09 ERA. It may have just been a bad season for Buckel last year, who could never find a way to get back to form, but it's still a bit astounding that he can still be ranked 10 spots ahead of Sadzeck.
Sadzeck will likely see a promotion to the Single-A Myrtle Beach Pelicans when the 2014 season begins, and deservedly so.
