Texas Rangers Prospect Tommy Mendonca Turning Heads in Texas League

A .283 batting average with 24 homers and 86 RBIs with games still remaining in your first Double-A season is a good way to start turning some heads around the big league club and the national baseball audience as a whole.

Tommy Mendonca, currently playing for the Texas Rangers’ Double-A affiliate, the Frisco Roughriders, has spent the 2011 season doing just that.

Following a forgettable 2010 season with the Bakersfield Blaze in which he hit just .248 with 10 homers and 126 strikeouts ,Mendonca has rebounded this season and shown the skill-set that he displayed while leading the Fresno State Bulldogs to the 2008 College World Series, securing his status as a second-round draft pick in 2009.

The hard work that he put in during this past offseason and throughout this year to raise his stock and keep him atop the prospect depth charts in the Rangers’ organization is a lesson he learned long before draft-day 2009, though.
