The Texas Rangers have been an impressive team to watch this season.
As of now, they are tied with the Baltimore Orioles for the second-best record in all of baseball at 41-24.
The team’s biggest strength has been their starting pitching, despite the absence of Jacob deGrom.
Their rotation is about to get another major boost.
According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Rangers are calling up their No. 4 prospect in right-handed pitcher Owen White.
The news of White’s recent promotion was announced by Rosenthal via Twitter.

The 23-year-old is being called up from the Rangers’ Double-A affiliate.
White has started 11 games and posted a 3.54 ERA while pitching 53.1 innings, allowing 39 hits, and just 21 earned runs.
He also has gone 2-3 in those 11 starts.
White should give the Rangers a major boost as they look to continue padding their lead in the American League West.
His minor league numbers this season have been stellar thus far.
The Texas Rangers today announced the following roster moves:
– LHP Cody Bradford (#61) recalled from Round Rock (AAA).
– RHP Owen White (#43) recalled from Frisco (AA).
– LHP Cole Ragans optioned to Round Rock (AAA).
– RHP Yerry Rodríguez optioned to Round Rock (AAA).

Texas selected the young right-hander in the second round of the 2018 MLB Draft after he had attended Carson High School in China Grove, North Carolina.
Last season, he went 9-2 in the minor leagues and posted an ERA of 3.59.
The Rangers pitching staff already features stars such as Jon Gray, Dane Dunning, and Nathan Eovaldi.
The addition of White is certainly highly anticipated in Arlington as the Rangers look to strengthen their pitching staff.NEXT: Ken Rosenthal Discusses Bruce Bochy's Impact On Rangers
