5. Nomar Mazara, OF, Texas Rangers
Mazara will be looking to make the jump to the big leagues next year, and will have a good shot with the inconsistent, oft-injured Josh Hamilton listed as the starting left-fielder for the Rangers. The lefty brings solid power to the table along with good contact and a good arm. Mazara doesn’t run particularly well, but still presents solid range in the outfield.
It will be interesting to see if the 20-year-old can fully claim the job though, with the aforementioned Hamilton and fellow top prospect Joey Gallo in the mix as well. If Mazara can’t snag the left-field job, it’ll obviously hamper his chances, but he should still get opportunities with the Rangers dealing Leonys Martin to the Mariners earlier this week.
