The Texas Rangers have a history of developing young talent and pushing them quickly through their system. Jorge Alfaro is looking to follow in the footsteps of players like Jurickson Profar and Martin Perez. The 18 year old Alfaro is currently at Short-A Northwest League as a member of the Spokane Indians. He is currently hitting .324 with 5(2B), 1(3B), 4HR, and 13RBI’s. While his plate discipline is poor, 33 strikeouts and just 3 walks in 105 at-bats, scouts are buzzing about his talent. In the article, Alfaro talks about his desire to improve, and Rangers staff talk about just how good the young Colombian player could be.
