Yesterday, MLB.com published its MLB Pipeline’s sixth annual All-Defensive team. These are the best defensive players in the top 100 in the MLB Pipeline, as rated by MLB.com.
The Rangers had one. Leodys Taveras. Here is what they said about Taveras:
“Taveras was clearly the best center fielder in the Rangers’ Summer Camp, which prompted them to promote him to Texas, where he didn’t disappoint. Signed for $2.1 million out of the Dominican Republic as one of the top athletes in the 2015 international class, he plays quicker than his plus speed in center field because he makes quality reads and jumps. His solid to plus arm is also stronger than most at his position.”
