Rangers Select 3B Josh Jung With The Eighth Pick In 2019 MLB Draft

The Rangers selected 3B Josh Jung from Texas Tech with the 8th pick of the 2019 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft tonight.

Powerfully built at 6-foot-2 and 215 pounds, Jung generates good power from his lower half and drives the ball with ease. His strength should enable him to remain a corner infielder moving forward.

The two-time All-American was named the 2019 Big 12 Co-Player of the Year after batting .340 with 11 homers and 53 RBIs in 57 games.
