Perhaps more than any other farm system, the Rangers are teeming with toolsy, young position players. Outfielder Nick Williams is the most consistent hitter among them, but even he realizes he has more work to do before he's ready for the big leagues.

It's not a typo, but it certainly seems like one at first glance. Michael De Leon isn't just the youngest player in history of the the Arizona Fall League, he's six years younger than his average teammate and a full decade younger than the oldest player on the team.
