24-year old righty swinging Taylor Teagarden was the Rangers’ #4 prospect coming into this season according to Baseball America’s Prospect Handbook. But, he has been passed up by Max Ramirez who was brought up from below Teagarden in the minors to replace the injured Gerald Laird. Teagarden has played in 64 games in AA+AAA ball this season and he is 48 for 219 (.219 avg, .719 OPS) with 29 runs scored, 8 homers and 21 RBIs. He has really looked overmatched at the plate this season as he has whiffed 71 times this year. Teagarden better get his act together soon or he might fall too far behind the other catchers in the Rangers organization.
