Rangers trade contact-challenged OF Jake Skole to Yankees
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/3/15) The Rangers have traded Double-A outfielder Jake Skole to the Yankees for cash considerations, per the Fort Worth Star Telegram.
The fomer first-round pick is batting just .218 this season, but that would be his peak average since 2012. He has 60 strikeouts in only 188 at-bats in 2015.
Maturing Jake Skole looking to stand out

|(3/26/13) Rangers outfield prospect Jake Skole shares a thread with Bryce Harper and Manny Machado -- two of the top young players in the majors -- as all three were selected in the first round of the 2010 MLB Draft. But that's the extent of the parallels, especially for Skole, whose status as a top prospect has been tarnished by poor production in the minors and a 50-game suspension last season for amphetamine use.
The 21-year-old, who was the 15th overall pick in 2010, is seeking a fresh start this year as he attempts to avoid falling behind the other young outfielders in the Texas farm system. He has yet to play above the Class A level in his career.
"I need to start the season and put 2012 behind me, get back on the right track and on the right path," Skole told MLB.com. "Like a lot of guys, I just need repetition and I need to keep playing. We need to keep learning the game and learn what kind of player we are, figure out what we need to produce."
