ARLINGTON — Step One for the Texas Rangers was selecting right-hander Jack Leiter with the No. 2 overall pick in the MLB Draft. They did that July 11.

Step Two was actually signing the Vanderbilt ace. They knocked that out Wednesday.

Leiter is the newest Texas Rangers hot prospect. Baseball America already ranked him as the Rangers’ top prospect, ahead of Josh Jung and Cole Winn, and No. 37 in baseball.

And he probably won’t pitch again until 2022.
