Could get September look
2BTexas Rangers  AAA
September 7, 2020
Ibanez is in line for a callup to Texas, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.
The 27-year-old Ibanez is not an advanced prospect, but he's hit at every level and should get a chance on a team that just finished a 3-17 stretch and is tied with Boston and Pittsburgh for the lowest winning percentage in the majors (.333). "As an organization, we value him, especially with the bat in his hand," Texas manager Chris Woodward said. "He gives you a quality at-bat every time. He hits the ball hard, stays in the strike zone, has a ton of adjust-ability on every pitch. He handles everything, every type of pitch, every type of velo, every type of speed, spin, everything." The issue with Ibanez has been finding him a home defensively. In two seasons at Triple-A, Ibanez slashed .291/.359/.454 with 32 home runs and 120 RBI. The Rangers have already started an evaluation of Anderson Tejeda (2B and SS) and Nick Solak (2B) while giving current third baseman Isiah Kiner-Falefa playing time at shortstop.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
The 23-year-old second baseman predictably started the season off on a tear against Low-A pitching, which was no match for the mature Cuban defector. Ibanez slashed .324/.413/.546 in 49 games at that level with 26 extra-base hits and 10 stolen bases (on 18 attempts). He also had more walks (29) than strikeouts (28). The Rangers decided to aggressively promote Ibanez to Double-A, where he registered more pedestrian numbers for the remainder of the season. Ibanez hit .261 with six home runs, 31 RBI and five steals in 81 games for Double-A Frisco. He does not have exciting tools, profiling as a guy who could offer Asdrubal Cabrera-level production at second base, except he is in an organization where that position won't be open anytime soon. Second base prospects are tough to own in dynasty leagues, as they have nowhere to move down the defensive spectrum where their bats would still play. Given Ibanez's age, organization and lack of impact tools, he is simply a candidate for watch lists in leagues where 200 or fewer prospects are rostered.
Ibanez was one of the top young players in Cuba before defecting last summer and will seek to sign with a MLB team. He was the youngest player on Cuba's 2013 World Baseball Classic roster. He was seen as one of Cuba's top infield gloves and hit .267/.377/.435 with more walks than strikeouts for Isla De La Juventud in the Serie Nacional, Cuba's top professional league, according to Baseball America. He may need to spend time in the minors once signed, but he'll be a top infield prospect wherever he lands.
