So many Astros on Texas League prospect list

Baseball America posted their (paywalled) Top 20 Texas League Prospect List, and there are so many Astros...

#1: George Springer
Springer’s tool set evoked some of the league’s recent elite center fielders such as Taveras or Mike Trout.

#2: Mike Foltynewicz
Managers this year shook their heads at the mere mention of Foltynewicz...

#6: Domingo Santana
...he’s been a bargain since signing for $330,000, and the Astros should reap the benefit of the Phillies’ investment.

#16: Max Stassi
Stassi handled Corpus Christi’s string of pitching prospects, showing a feel for receiving, calling pitches and game management.
