Texas Rangers AAA
2023 Fantasy Outlook
After finishing his injury-shortened 2021 season at Double-A Frisco, Foscue returned there for the duration of the 2022 campaign. Although the former first-round pick's power production dipped, he greatly improved his strikeout rate from 27 percent to 14.3 percent. Foscue also got better as the season moved along, posting a .300/.363/.486 line with 11 of his 15 homers over the final three months. Foscue's bat will need to carry him because his defense is poor, and second base (Marcus Semien) and likely third base (Josh Jung) are already spoken for with the big club, anyway. The 24-year-old figures to spend most, if not all, of 2023 at Triple-A Round Rock. Read Past Outlooks

Goes deep again

Foscue went 2-for-2 with a solo home run in Saturday's spring game against the Royals.
Foscue homered for a second consecutive spring game. The second-base prospect improved his production at the plate in several areas during a full season at Double-A Frisco in 2022. When drafted in the first round of the 2020 draft, Foscue was considered the second baseman of the future, but the Rangers since signed Marcus Semien for that role. Last season's dalliance at third base (12 starts) indicates the organization is looking to find Foscue a home, but Josh Jung appears to have that position locked up. Foscue's bat could carry him to the big leagues, but his fielding is a concern. He had a miscue Saturday that was not an error because double-plays can't be assumed, but it did extend a multi-run inning for Kansas City. A fringy arm at second base will not improve at third, so perhaps a move to left field is in order. The Rangers are not settled at that position.

2021 Fantasy Outlook
The Rangers landed their second baseman of the future with the No. 14 overall pick in last year's draft. Foscue walked 15 times compared to three strikeouts while hitting .321 in 16 games last spring for Mississippi State en route to establishing himself as first-round selection. He has a chance to be an above-average hitter with above-average pull-side power, and as a right-handed infielder who can't play shortstop, his bat needs to carry him to the majors. While his spring performance is encouraging, Foscue hit just .255/.288/.362 with zero home runs and an 8:3 K:BB in 47 at-bats with a wood bat for Team USA last summer. Foscue played some third base as a sophomore but played exclusively at the keystone as a junior, which will be his position in pro ball. He went to the alternate training site and participated in the fall instructional league and could open the year at High-A or Double-A.
