Major League Bloodlines

With its 36 round pick, the Rangers selected the son of a former Major Leaguer in Jack Armstrong Jr. An Aflac All-American last fall, Armstrong is 6-feet-7 and shows velocity up to 92 mph. Armstrong has been inconsistent this season but has shown flashes of above-average stuff and at other times has looked ordinary. Armstrong plans to join Sonny Gray and Navery Moore at Vanderbilt next year if he doesn’t sign with the Rangers.
