Law: Lewis Brinson a sleeper prospect

2/6/2013

ESPN.com's Keith Law ranked the top 10 players in each organization in the American League today (insider) with write-ups on each team. To see his full story, you'll have to be an insider and can click here.

But he noted that outfielder Lewis Brinson, who he ranks fifth among the Rangers' top 10 prospects, is a sleeper. Here's part of what he said about Brinson:

I was blown away by the changes Lewis Brinson made to his swing over the summer, setting up his hands a little lower and further back while shortening his stride, significantly improving his bat speed through the zone without any loss of power.

Brinson played in the Arizona League in 2012 and hit .283 with seven homers and 42 RBIs with 14 stolen bases in 54 games. He turns 19 in May.

Law had four Rangers in his top-100, as we discussed on Tuesday. Here's Nos. 6-10 in the Rangers' system, according to Law:

6. OF Nomar Mazara

7. 3B Joey Gallo

8. C Jorge Alfaro

9. SS Luis Sardinas

10. RHP Luke Jackson
