Rangers might lose catching prospect Jorge Alfaro for the season


Rangers catching prospect Jorge Alfaro was placed on the seven-day disabled list at Double-A Frisco on Friday due to an injury to a ligament in his left ankle. They’re facing the possibility he could miss the remainder of the season, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports. Rangers director of player development Mike Daly said, “He could be out for some meaningful time.”

Alfaro turned 22 years old on Thursday. He was rated the 31st-best prospect in baseball heading into the 2015 season according to Baseball Prospectus. In 207 plate appearances with Frisco, Alfaro was batting .253/.314/.432 with five home runs and 21 RBI.
