2B
Alberto, Hanser
TEX
Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar (shoulder) is unlikely to make the opening day roster, as the Rangers care more about his long-term health. He won't be competing for a spot on the roster, but rather trying to play in competitive spring games again. Scouts saw enough action in Profar's bat in the Arizona Fall League, but the question remains about his throwing. Profar is likely to play much more shortstop than second base this spring, because the belief is the throwing angle from shortstop is less stressful on his shoulder. In the meantime, 2B Hanser Alberto will be given a chance to win a utility spot.
