Friday on the Farm: Sebastian Walcott, barely 17, turning heads in Rangers minor-league camp
(Rangers Today/John Moore)
SURPRISE, Ariz. — The youngest player in Rangers minor-league camp sure doesn’t look the part.
Maybe it’s because he’s with the A-ball and rookie-ball infielders, many of them teenagers or in their early 20s. Sebastian Walcott, though, would standout next to the players on the cusp of the major leagues.
Walcott is the prize of the current international free-agent class, a shortstop from the Bahamas who signed with the Rangers for $3.2 million. He’s 6-foot-4 and might end up at 6-foot-6 and around 250 pounds.
That’s a big shortstop. That’s a big anything.
