Round 11, Pick 325: Nicholas Lockhart-RHP, Woodgrove HS (VA)
He throws a low 90’s fastball, and currently has a commitment to Virginia Tech. His debut would happen around 2024.
Round 12, Pick 355: Gavin Collyer-RHP, Mountain View HS (GA)
He was rated the 125th ranked prospect by MLB.com, and currently has a commitment to Clemson. It should be interesting to see if he sings with the Texas Rangers or not. The Rangers will for sure offer him more than slot value.
*Time to fly to just some of the more notable guys*
Round 14, Pick 415: Adam Berghorst-RHP, Zeeland East HS (MI)
Now, this is a guy… he is currently committed to play baseball and some football on the D-Line at Michigan St. At 6’7, 245 pounds, he would for sure intimidate any minor leaguer that steps up to the plate against this 18 year-old, if the Rangers could sign him. His ETA would be 2025, and he would definitely be a fun prospect to keep up with!
Round 15, Pick 445: Randon Hostert-RHP, Bonneville HS (ID)
Commit to Utah, but I would expect the Rangers to be able to sign him. ETA would be around 2025.
Round 16, Pick 475: Triston Polley-LHP, Indiana St.
22 year-old lefty with an 8-1 record and a 2.84 ERA across 16 starts with a 90:40 K:BB ratio in 104.2 innings. Possible starter, but could be moved to a long reliever type role. Debut could happen around 2024.
Round 19, Pick 565: Blaine Crim-1B, Mississippi College
A friend of one of the experts over at Nolan Writin’, Crim tore it up at Mississippi College, with a .373 avg and 11 HR’s. His expected ETA would be around 2024.

Round 27, Pick 805: Mason Cole-RHP, Texas A&M
A treat to our Texas A&M readers. It should be interesting to see if the 21 year-old junior decides to go to the pros, or return for his senior year at A&M. In 6 games, he pitched 8.1 innings, and posted a 5.40 ERA with a 9:4 K:BB ratio.
It will be extremely interesting to see if he stays in Aggieland or joins the Texas Rangers farm system. If he signs, his ETA would be around 2025.
Round 39, Pick 1165: Adrian Rodriguez-RHP, Florida Virtual School
I had to include this guy because he’s from a virtual school. Now the real question-is he going to pitch for the Rangers in real life, or on MLB the Show? Jokes aside, he was scouted by the same guy that found Joe Palumbo, who will make his MLB debut on Saturday, so he could be an interesting prospect to watch if he signs. His expected debut would be around 2025.

The Texas Rangers also drafted a lot of other players that weren’t listed! Just because they didn’t make the list, doesn’t mean that they should be written off! Not every good player was a top 10 prospect, or even drafted in the first 10 rounds!
