    ARLINGTON, TX - JUNE 12: Prior to the start of the Arizona Diamondbacks v Texas Rangers game, the Texas Rangers agree to terms with five selections in 2012 Major League Baseball first year player draft (L-R) John Daniels general manager, Lewis Brinson, Joey Gallo, Collin Wiles, Jamie Jarmon, Nick Willams and Nolan Ryan president of the Texas Rangers at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington on June 12, 2012 in Arlington, Texas.

    The Minnesota Twins have a guy named Byron Buxton, and if you haven't heard of him, you should familiarize yourself because he's going to be a stud.

    Buxton is the top prospect in all of baseball, which of course also makes him the top outfield prospect in the game, but behind him that latter category are two guys who could be Texas Rangers stars down the road or swapped for someone else who will be.

    According to MLB.com, Lewis Brinson is the No. 2 outfield prospect in the game just ahead of No. 3 Nomar Mazara, who is ranked by many as the top prospect in the Rangers' organization. What's that discrepancy mean? Nothing but the fact that both are very good players with high ceilings.

    They both made great strides in 2015 with Mazara making the jump from Double-A to Triple-A look easy and Brinson moving all the way from High-A to Double-A and finally to Triple-A at the end of the season.
