Top prospect Justin Foscue drafted by Rangers to replace injured Josh Jung

Josh Jung’s Injury Opens Door for Justin Foscue in Texas Rangers Lineup

The Texas Rangers faced a setback on Monday night when third baseman Josh Jung suffered a fractured right wrist after being hit by a pitch. This injury opened up an opportunity for one of the team’s top prospects, Justin Foscue. According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, Foscue was called up and will join the team for Tuesday’s game.

Foscue, a 25-year-old first-round pick in 2020, is a versatile infielder who can play first, second, and third base. He will be filling in for Jung while he recovers from his injury. The extent of Jung’s absence is still uncertain, with the possibility of surgery affecting his recovery timeline.

Jung had been off to a strong start for the Rangers, with a .412 batting average, 1.415 OPS, two home runs, and six RBI in his first 19 plate appearances of the season. Despite being a key player for the reigning World Series champions, Jung has had a history of injuries, including a fractured left thumb and a calf issue last season.

With infield depth from players like Ezequiel Duran and Josh Smith, the Rangers are confident that they can cover for Jung’s absence. Duran is expected to step in at third base, but this injury provides an opportunity for Foscue to gain valuable major league experience while contributing to the team’s performance across the infield.

As the team’s No. 5 prospect according to MLB.com
