Texas selected right-hander Luis Ortiz and shortstop Ti'Quan Forbes with its first two picks and ended the Draft by taking lefty Nick Dignacco in the 40th round.
Ortiz, a 6-foot-3, 220-pounder, went 5-3 with a 1.04 ERA and 72 strikeouts in 43 2/3 innings at Sanger High School in California. The Rangers reached a $1.75 million signing bonus agreement with the high schooler. The pick value at No. 30 was $1,760,500.
Forbes, meanwhile, batted .427 with three home runs and 32 RBIs as a senior for Columbia High School in Columbia, Mississppi. He signed an overslot deal for $1.2 million (the assigned value of the No. 59 pick was $957,900).
Right-hander Gabe Gonzalez, selected in the 13th round, was the highest pick that the Rangers didn't come to terms with.
