Rangers score a Curley, No. 2 prospect in international signing class
Curley Martha joined the Rangers on Monday (Baseball America via Twitter).
The potential for stardom comes built-in for a ballplayer with a name like Curley Martha.
Nearly five years ago, he was a star.
Martha helped guide Curacao to the international championship at the 2019 College World Series, putting away Japan with a fifth-inning home run. He went deep three times in the tournament.
Curley Martha is an amazing name. https://t.co/zpTJw0Vgmo

Martha was one of 23 players who came to agreements Monday with the Rangers on the first day of the international signing period. While Martha, a shortstop, has the name, another player the Rangers signed is considered one of the best players available.
