2017

2016

Often overshadowed by fellow Rangers outfield prospect Nomar Mazara and former organizational mate Nick Williams, Brinsonís time to shine is fast approaching. At just 21 years old, he may have been the most impressive hitting prospect in the game over the final five weeks of the season, blasting seven homers with five steals while hitting .321 in 140 at-bats at Double-A and Triple-A. Brinson finished with a gaudy .332/.403/.601 line, 20 homers, and 18 steals (on 25 attempts) in 100 games across three levels. An athletic 6-foot-3 center fielder with a plus glove, Brinson brings more to the table than just his impressive offensive tools. It was a pleasantly surprising season for Delino DeShields after Leonys Martin lost his job, but DeShields is a below-average defender in center field and probably more of utility player long term. Brinson is quite clearly the up-the-middle option of the future in Texas, and his reign may begin sometime this summer.

2015

Brinsonís tools are undeniable, which he made clear at Low-A Hickory in 2013 by hitting 21 home runs with 24 steals in 503 plate appearances. But there was a lot of swing and miss in the 20-year-oldís game, as he also had a 38.0% strikeout rate, leading to just a .237 batting average. Fast forward to 2014, and Brinson returned to Hickory with a vengeance, slashing .335/.405/.579 with 10 home runs and seven steals in 186 plate appearances while cutting his strikeout rate down to 24.7%. That performance earned the center fielder a promotion to High-A Myrtle Beach, and even though his strikeout rate remained acceptable, his other numbers tanked (.246/.307/.350 in 199 plate appearances). Brinson is still really young, and the fact that he was able to keep his strikeouts in a workable range all season speaks to the improvements he made after 2013. Look for him to make another set of adjustments heading into 2015, with a chance to finish the year at Double-A.

2014

Brinson whiffed a massive 38 percent of the time during a full season at Low-A Hickory (.237/.322/.427 in 122 games), which doesn't exactly paint a bright picture for his future, despite a well-hyped skill set, after he was selected in the first round in 2012. He profiles well as a defensive stud in center field but still has a long way to go in his offensive development in order to pay dividends in any facet of the game. There's a ton of potential here, as he climbs the minor league ladder, but just as much risk. To begin the 2014 campaign, he'll likely receive a bump to High-A Myrtle Beach.

2013

Brinson was selected in the first round of the June draft and showed good promise in his professional debut in the Arizona League. Comparisons to Cameron Maybin and Dexter Fowler have been thrown about, and he showed a solid power/speed approach with 36 extra-base hits (seven homers) and 14 steals in 16 attempts in just 237 at-bats. He fanned 74 times against just 21 walks, but turned 18 years old just prior to the draft and held his own in his professional debut.
