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.

Next up: Doing great things for the Rangers.

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.

    The loss of international draft funds didn’t stop Texas from getting a steal on the number 2 prospect, along with all these other top guys. Thus, they shoild go for Hader and not worry about the 1 million they lose. I know deals are agreed upon years ago, but I doubt nobody offered the guy significantly more money. Idk why guys are expected to stick to their agreements years in. I believe the Rangers would actually lose a 2nd and 5th round pick the first time, not a 2nd and 3rd pick, but this years’ ones are 30th picks anyways, so why not go for it? Hader and Neris
