MLB Draft Results: Rangers Select RHP Alec Asher

On Tuesday, the Texas Rangers front office is joining in with all other teams in a frantic and busy day of business in the second day of the 2012 MLB Draft. The Rangers have made their fourth-round pick

With the No. 156 overall pick, the Rangers selected right-handed pitcher Alec Asher from Polk State College in Florida.

Asher may be a risky pick, as he had Tommy John surgery at the young age of 14 years old and has also had bone chip issues. When healthy, he has been terribly impressive. The Rangers are hoping the JuCo star will be able to stick at the major league level.
