Rangers Exciting Top Prospect Finally Healthy And "Ready To Go"

Speaking to reporters last week, Texas Rangers prospect Josh Jung said that he was never fully healthy during the 2022 season, but that he's "dialed in" and "ready to go now."

Jung was expected to open last season as the Rangers' starting third baseman, but he suffered a torn labrum in his left shoulder in late February, forcing him to miss the majority of the season.

However, the twenty-four-year-old finally got a chance to make his major-league debut in September, appearing in 26 games and posting a .204 batting average with five home runs, 14 RBIs, two stolen bases and nine runs scored.

Jung did admit to doing everything he could to get back on the field before the end of the season, which may have involved him not being fully healthy when he returned.

The top prospect is now fully healthy and it will be exciting to see what he can do with a full season.

During his time in the minors, Jung posted a fantastic .311/.381/.919 triple-slash line, with 30 home runs, 118 RBIs, seven stolen bases and 96 runs scored over 602 at-bats.

He was the Rangers' first-round pick (8th overall) in the 2019 MLB Draft.
