One of the most underrated pitchers yet to pitch at Double-A, Jose Corniell had a dominant run across Single-A and High-A last season. The 6-foot-3 righty logged a 2.92 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 119 strikeouts in 101.2 innings while staying healthy throughout his age-19/20 season. He primarily works with a 94-mph fastball and a plus 84-mph sweeper, while mixing in an improving changeup and a cutter that was introduced last year. If Corniell had average command, he'd project as a back-end starter, but his above-average to plus command gives him a chance to be more of a No. 3 starter if he can keep refining his changeup. He was added to the 40-man roster as Rule 5 draft protection and will head to Double-A this season and doesn't turn 21 until June.

  • Rangers' Jose Corniell: Set for UCL surgery

    Corniell will undergo season-ending surgery to repair the UCL in his right elbow, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports. Corniell has been sidelined all season with an elbow issue. While his injury was initially referred to as inflammation when he went on the 7-day injured list at Double-A Frisco back in early April, subsequent testing revealed a more serious concern. It's not yet clear whether Corniell will have a full Tommy John surgery or internal brace procedure, but in either case he won't pitch again in 2024 and is likely to miss at least a large chunk, if not all, of the 2025 season.

  • Rangers' Jose Corniell: Dealing with elbow inflammation

    Corniell will open the season on the injured list at Double-A Frisco with elbow inflammation, Jim Callis of reports. This is an ominous injury designation for the 20-year-old righty. Corniell has outstanding control for his age (7.3 BB% in 58.1 innings at High-A) and a quality four-pitch mix headlined by a 94-mph fastball and plus 84-mph sweeper. The fact he was assigned to Double-A before turning 21 illustrates how advanced Corniell is, but this elbow injury could be his first big setback. Per Callis, Corniell is expected back in early June.
