Texas Rangers select Forney High School pitcher Mason Englert in 2018 MLB Draft

Forney pitcher Mason Englert could be staying close to home. 

On Tuesday afternoon, the Texas Rangers selected the 6-foot-4 righty in the fourth round with the 119th overall pick.

MLB.com ranked Englert as the 114th-best prospect in the 2018 draft class. He shot up draft boards after a stellar senior season at Forney, in which he set a state record by throwing 55.1 innings without allowing a run, a record that was originally set by former Rangers pitcher David Clyde during his prep days. 

Englert is currently committed to play baseball at Texas A&M. If he signs with the Rangers, he will forgo that commitment. He has until July 6 to make a decision
