Friday on the Farm: 12 of the best August performances in the Rangers’ system

Wyatt Langford was promoted to Double A Frisco after a huge August at High A Hickory (Frisco RoughRiders).



The biggest news Rangers minor-league news this season came earlier this month, when the Rangers promoted top prospect Evan Carter to the majors from Triple A Round Rock.

Also making headlines were the promotions of No. 2 prospect Wyatt Langford to Double A Frisco and No. 3 prospects Sebastian Walcott to High A Hickory.

Carter had been with Round Rock only eight games, but Adolis Garcia was injured and Carter was deemed the best replacement for the two-time All-Star.

Carter was flourishing at Triple A after a solid campaign at Double A Frisco. He had a solid August with the RoughRiders before moving, batting .284 with an .862 OPS, 10 extra-base hits and 10 steals.

    Nice performances all, but the best August performance was turned in by a guy named Cole Ragans. Not on our farm anymore. Also not a 5+ ERA guy anymore. In two months with KC, his ERA is 1.69 with them? What changed? Maybe a new pitching coach? Best wishes for Cole tonight against the Astros.
