Will the Rangers toolsy outfielder be limited by his hit tool, or will thing click for Lewis Brinson?
Our next player in the
Prospect Debate series is outfielder Texas Rangers , the no. 9 rated prospect in the Baseball Prospectus system this winter. Brinson was taken with the 29 Lewis Brinson th pick of the 2012 draft, and while he’s posted decent numbers in his three-plus years in the system, he has frustrated scouts along the way, and has received as many mixed reviews as any outfield prospect I’ve discussed with talent evaluators.
To help understand why he’s such a frustrating prospect, I enlisted the help of Prospect Team members
Craig Goldstein and Mauricio Rubio to discuss what makes him one of the most talented members of the deep Rangers system, but also why there’s still an uphill battle for him to become a big-league contributor.
A look at the gameplay, scouting, and mobile elements of the newest edition in the series.
As you would likely expect, there are quite a few members of our staff who enjoy the Out of the Park (OOTP) baseball series. Three of them have graciously offered to play hours and hours of the game in order to have an awesome time share their experiences with you, the readers. This is their journey.

The BP Prospect team talks about players they have seen and some current baseball events.
There Is No Offseason is a podcast that focuses exclusively on dynasty and long-term keeper formats. We talk major leagues, minor leagues and we never miss an opportunity to take a jab at Craig. How Kris Bryant has proven us right, and wrong, thus far.
