Rangers prospect Josh Jung was drafted 7th overall in the 2019 MLB draft, and is currently ranked as the #55 prospect in the MLB.
Jung has been on a mission to reach the big league club since he was drafted, ending the season at A level affiliate, Hickory Crawdads. While playing for the Crawdads, Jung has put up a .287/.363/.389 slash line.
Jung’s fielding during his time playing in the Rangers system has been outstanding. He has put up a .980 fielding percentage, although a small sample, would place him #1 among active MLB players. Jung’s range factor per 9 would place him at #6, tied with Mike Moustakas with a 2.68 RF/9.
Taking in all of these stats, Jung definitely can defend his #1 spot on the list of Rangers top prospects. Jung is certainly an A prospect, although he is overshadowed by the great number of amazing prospects in baseball today.
