TCU and Texas Tech each have two players among Baseball America’s Top 50 college prospects for the major league draft.

TCU first baseman Luken Baker is the top-rated college player from Texas, ranking No. 12. He’s the second-highest ranked infield prospect in the nation. He was previously drafted by the Houston Astros in 2015. He’ll be a junior when the Horned Frogs’ season starts in February. The MLB draft is scheduled to start on June 4.

Texas Tech left-hander Steven Gingery and right-hander Davis Martin are ranked Nos. 26 and 30. TCU right-hander Sean Wymer is No. 31. Oklahoma outfielder Steele Walker is the only other Big 12 player in the top 50 at No. 15. He attended Prosper High School.
