Friday on the Farm: Jack Leiter arrives for long weekend at Rangers' instructs after touching 98 in recent bullpen at Vandy
The 2021 first-round pick is on a throwing program while continuing to work on his degree in Tennessee.
A two-day fall break at Vanderbilt started Thursday. For junior undergrad Jack Leiter, that meant trading time off from his degree path for his path with the Texas Rangers.
Leiter headed to Surprise, Ariz., for a long weekend cram session at the fall instructional league, where the plan is for him to continue to get a feel for the organization that selected him in July with the second overall pick.
He’s also going to throw a bullpen in the Rangers’ performance center. Apparently, Leiter has been performing well at Vandy.
