don't know a thing about this guy.. but if @fawkes_mulder starts a thread, then i'm going to do some research. semi-interesting stat that catches my eye immediately: in his first three seasons of milb, he moved up a level each year, but lowered his k rate each time. he only slightly lowered it each year, but still.. he didn't get overmatched.

2014 rookie - 23%

2015 low a - 22.9%

2016 a - 22.7%

Thanks for the vote of confidence, @osb_tensor

 

2014 Rangers #15 Prospect per BA.

TI'QUAN FORBES, SS/3B A Mississippi prep product, Forbes signed for $1.2 million as a second-round pick in 2014, with Texas drawn to the three-sport athlete for his tools, physical projection and upside. Forbes has a sizable gap between his present ability and his future potential. He offers significant physical projection in his long, lean frame, and he already has plus bat speed despite not having a ton of strength yet. He's mostly a gap hitter, but some scouts see the potential for above-average power once he fills out. Forbes doesn't have a classic setup at the plate, starting with a hand hitch that leads to some swing-and-miss, but he has extremely quick hands and can buggy-whip the bat head through the zone. He's not a free-swinger either, so he will take his walks. Forbes is a plus runner, though he could slow down once he adds size. He has an average arm and likely fits best at third base, though he has room to improve there, with center field another option. Forbes could move on to low Class A Hickory in 2015, though given the Rangers' lower level infielders, he could open at short-season Spokane instead.
