The 2014 Futures Game is July 15 and features some of the brightest young talents in the minors.
The Texas Rangers will have two players representing the organization this season. They are both rated in MLB.com’s Top 100 Prospects list and would have played in the game’s 2013 version if it weren’t for injuries.
Those two players are third baseman Joey Gallo and catcher Jorge Alfaro.
Both players are having great seasons with Gallo earning a promotion to Double-A Frisco and Alfaro leading most statistical categories among Carolina League catchers. Having missed out on last year’s contest, the two stars will be looking to show the world what they didn’t get to see last season.
Here are the scouting reports for both Gallo and Alfaro. Their organizational rank is based off of a prospect ranking I put together before the start of spring training, and stats will be as of July 10.
