Andy Ibanez went into Friday night’s game against the San Antonio Missions hitting .500.
Even though it’s very early in the season, that gives you an idea why Ibanez is one of the Texas Rangers’ top prospects on the Nashville Sounds’ roster.
The Sounds third baseman had one hit, one RBI and one run scored in a 7-3 victory over the Missions at Wolff Stadium.
Ibanez is listed as infielder on the roster and has seen action as a second baseman in the minors. Prospects 1500 lists the 26-year-old from Cuba as the second highest prospect among position players on the Sounds’ roster and in the top 50 in the Rangers’ minor-league organization.
Missions fans got a chance to see Ibanez last season in the Texas League. He hit .283 with 12 home runs with Round Rock in 2018.
The Missions and Sounds continue their four-game series tonight at 7:05 p.m. at Wolff Stadium with fireworks after the game. The teams meet again Sunday at 2:05 p.m. and Monday at 11:05 a.m.
