Rangers final workout brings intrigue
By Andrew Drennen
The final Texas Rangers workout was held in Houston at Baseball USA "The Yard" and like the workout in Weatherford, over 140 players attended.
One of the standout names was Hunter Kopycinski of St. Thomas (Houston, Texas). If the name rings a bell, it's because he played on the Rangers a year ago. He has a good arm behind the plate, but his best asset may be his bat. He constantly squared up balls during the batting practice session.
Out of Fossil Ridge (Fort Worth, Texas) Sheldon Neuse had one of the best days in Houston. Not only is he a solid defensive player, but when he took to the mound he showed great stuff. He stands in a 6-foot and 170 pounds.
