    Sam Huff was drafted with the 219th pick in the 2016 MLB June Amateur Draft. He sits at the #74 spot on the MLB prospect rankings, and is #2 on the Rangers prospect rankings.

    Huff is currently playing for the Single A Hickory Crawdads, being sent down from the High Single A Down East Wood Ducks. In the 30 games he played for Hickory in 2019, he posted a .333/.368/.796 slash line, which is high enough where he should be considered for a promotion back to Down East. When taking all 4 years of his time in the minors into consideration, he has a .264/.328/.473, which is considerably worse.

    Since Huff has played the majority of his games at the catcher position, his fielding stats are a little different than other positions. He has a .990 Fielding Percentage over the 4 years in the minors, which is respectable for a catcher. He has a 34% Caught Stealing Percentage, which when compared to modern day catchers, would be slightly above average.

    Huff won the 2019 Futures Game MVP award, because of a game-tying 2 run home run in the bottom of the 7th inning. In the Futures game, there are only 7 innings, so this sent the game to an extra inning and prevented an AL loss. Notable Rangers player Joey Gallo won the same award during the 2014 All-Star Futures Game at Target Field in Minnesota.

    Overall, while Huff has not put up considerable numbers during his 4 years in the minors, he still is a top 5 prospect for the Rangers. There are not enough decent prospects on the list where he should fall much. He earns a B- rating for all of these stats, when put together.
