2018

2017

The Rangers inked Taveras to a $2.1 million bonus as one of the top international free agents in 2015. At the time, he was joining one of the top farm systems in the game. Several mammoth trades and a couple high-profile graduations later, and Taveras sits atop that system entering his age-18 season. A surefire top-100 prospect in his own right, Taveras is deserving of the honor. The cousin of retired outfielder Willy Taveras, Leody is bursting with tools. His hit tool and speed both earn plus grades, and he has the body (6-foot-2, 185 pounds) and bat speed to eventually grow into average or better power. All told, this is a potential up-the-middle star who could get MVP votes someday. He has not yet played in a full-season league and posted a 59 wRC+ in a 29-game run with short-season Spokane, but the fact that he was even playing in the Northwest League as a 17-year-old speaks volumes about how advanced Taveras is. He could finish 2017 as a top-10 prospect in the game.
