Rangers' Josh Jung: Impressing at alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Chris Woodward said Tuesday that he expects Jung to reach the majors at some point in 2021, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Jung has spent the last three months at the Rangers' alternate site camp and will go to Arizona for the extended instructional league later this month. He has apparently impressed this summer, despite the unorthodox developmental structure. Jung was seen as a hit over power third baseman, but he worked on tapping into more pull power this summer. Isiah Kiner-Falefa has had a breakout year at third base, so if he keeps it up in 2021, Jung may move to first base if he does indeed debut in his age-23 season.

Rangers' Josh Jung: Will develop in summer camp

Jung was added to the Rangers' 60-man player pool Sunday.

Jung, who was drafted eighth-overall by the Rangers in 2019, is not yet on the 40-man roster and probably won't get a sniff playing time against major-league pitching in 2020. The 22-year-old third baseman appeared in 40 games at Low-A Hickory where he slashed .287/.363/.389 with one home run and 23 RBI for the Crawdads in 2019. The Rangers will continue their work, likely in the alternate training camp, to develop Jung's power stroke.

Rangers' Josh Jung: Works on pulling ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jung spent the offseason working on pulling the ball, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Jung, who spent a week in the rookie-level Arizona League before jumping to Low-A Hickory for 40 games in 2019, made more than 500 plate appearances between Texas Tech and pro ball last year. Playing that much helped Jung and the organization recognize areas of focus for this past offseason. "He invested a ton of time on his own and with our hitting coaches learning how to properly pull the ball and continue his growth as a multi-dimensional hitter," said Rangers assistant general manager for player development Mike Daly. The team feels he can unlock more power by pulling the ball more, a crucial step for the 22-year-old after he hit only two homers in 44 games during his pro debut.

Rangers' Josh Jung: Jumps to Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jung was promoted to Low-A Hickory on Monday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The eighth-overall pick in the 2019 draft, Jung played in just four games at the rookie-league level, going 10-for-17 at the plate. He'll jump over short-season Spokane and head straight to full-season ball.
