It's been a rough August for the Rangers as they've lost their hold on the AL West, but reinforcements are on the way. With rosters set to expand from 26 to 28 players on Sept. 1, Texas will be able to call up a couple of prospects to hopefully give the club a boost down the stretch.
With top prospect Evan Carter just getting promoted to Triple-A on Aug. 29, he's unlikely to debut in the majors this year. However, there are plenty of other prospects who deserve a look in September and might be able to help us clinch a playoff spot.
That said, here are three prospects the Rangers should consider calling up on Sept. 1.
3 Prospects Rangers Should Call Up
1. Justin Foscue, INF
Foscue may not be the most prized prospect in our organization, but he's arguably the most ready for the big leagues.
Ranked as the No. 6 prospect in our system by MLB Pipeline, Foscue's been having a great season at Triple-A Round Rock. The 24-year-old infielder is slashing .261/.388/.443 with 13 homers through 99 games as of Aug. 29.
His plate discipline has been outstanding, as he has more walks (66) than strikeouts (55). He's also been more aggressive on the bases with a career-high 13 steals in 18 attempts.
With his polished approach and well-rounded offensive profile, Foscue appears ready for the next step. He can play multiple positions (second base and third base) too, which means he can help replace the injured Josh Jung at the hot corner.
It'll be tough to get him regular at-bats in our loaded lineup, but Foscue could be a valuable bench player for us in September.
