Rangers Select Top Prospect's Contract; Brother Of Ronald Acuna Jr.

He's been added to the Texas Rangers' 40-man roster. 

The Rangers have selected the contract of infielder Luisangel Acuna from High-A Hickory.
Acuna is one of the younger brothers of Atlanta Braves superstar Ronald Acuna Jr. 

He appears to also be on his way to success in the majors, after slashing an impressive .277/.369/.426, with 11 home runs, 47 RBIs, 40 stolen bases and 66 runs scored over 91 games between High-A and Double-A this past season.

Luisangel measures in at about 5-foot-8, so he doesn't possess the same power potential as his older brother, but at just twenty-years old he is defintely ahead of schedule and rapidly ascending the ranks of the Rangers' organization.

Luisangel Acuna will be a name to watch in the coming years and perhaps even sooner. He is the seventh-ranked prospect in the Rangers' organization.
