Cole Ragans
Name: Cole Gatlin Ragans
Born: Dec 12, 1997 in Crawfordville, FL
High School: North Florida Christian HS, Tallahassee, Fla.
Ht.: 6'4" / Wt.: 190 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: L
Drafted in the 1st round (30th overall) by the Texas Rangers in 2016 (signed for $2,003,400)
For the third straight year, North Florida Christian High, a small school in the state capital, has a top 100 prospect. In each of the last two years, it has been a Sands brother, first Carson (No. 53 in 2014) and then Cole (No. 79 in 2015). Carson signed out of high school as a fourth-round pick to the Cubs, while Cole went on to nearby Florida State. Ragans will follow in the footsteps of one of his former teammates, as he too is committed to the Seminoles. He stands out for his overall package and advanced understanding of his craft. He throws his fastball in the low 90s, reaching 93 mph at times. His curveball is his best offspeed offering and has above-average potential. He has worked to develop his changeup, which could be an average pitch in time. Listed at 6-foot-4, 190 pounds, Ragans is at his best when he uses his height to throw his fastball with a downhill plane and is spotting it low in the zone. He doesn't do that consistently yet, but his athleticism gives him a chance to improve his command as he matures.
