Rangers | Jurickson Profar scores twice

Sun, 29 May 2016 06:31:22 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar went 2-for-4 with two runs and a triple during the Rangers' 5-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates Saturday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Profar has fleeting fantasy value in deeper leagues and could have a solid stretch leading off for the Rangers. It is unlikely he proves enough to stick around once Rougned Odor's seven-game suspension is finished, but Profar is a potential stash in AL-only leagues if demoted.

Rangers | Will Jurickson Profar stick with Texas?

Fri, 27 May 2016 15:57:55 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar might not receive enough at-bats to remain with Texas after 2B Rougned Odor's seven-game suspension is completed, in the opinion of The Dallas Morning News' Evan Grant.

Fantasy Tip: Profar would likely be helpful for Texas in a depth/utility role, but it might also be at the expense of his development, and the Rangers probably want him to see full-time work. He does have a week-long audition to push the issue, though. For now, view Profar as a fleeting option in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats, but it is a situation to watch.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar leading off

Fri, 27 May 2016 14:02:57 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar is playing second base and batting leadoff against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jon Niese Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: With Rougned Odor suspended for the next seven games, Profar should start and set the table for a potent Texas lineup, making him very attractive to DFS gamers. In deep mixed and AL-only leagues he's worth a cheap flyer for the short term, too. Injuries have made Profar a forgotten man these last few years, but he was showing an impressive .284/.356/.426 slash line at Class AAA Round Rock with five home runs, 26 RBI and four steals.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar will be recalled

Thu, 26 May 2016 13:57:11 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Jurickson Profar will be recalled from Class AAA Round Rock when 2B Rougned Odor begins his suspension.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries have taken their toll on Profar's development as he hasn't played in the majors since 2013. He has been solid for Round Rock with a .284/.356/.426 slash line and will have fleeting value in deep mixed and AL-only leagues for the duration of Odor's suspension. Stay tuned for updates.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar promotion coming?

Thu, 19 May 2016 14:40:50 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B/SS Jurickson Profar played second base for Class AAA Round Rock Tuesday, May 17, which could mean he is promoted to Texas to play the keystone during 2B Rougned Odor's pending eight-game suspension, in the opinion for FoxSports.com's Jon Morosi.

Fantasy Tip: Profar has 23 runs, five home runs, 21 RBI, four stolen bases and a .271/.348/.417 slash line through 162 plate appearances with Round Rock this season, and he was once as highly regarded as any prospect in baseball before injuries derailed his ascent to stardom. Profar projects to have fleeting value in deep mixed and AL-only formats, if he is indeed recalled to fill in for Odor.

Rangers | Three Rangers sent down

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 09:44:01 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo, OF Nomar Mazara and 2B Jurickson Profar were all optioned to minor league camp Monday, March 21.

Fantasy Tip: All three could have significant roles on the team by season's end. Mazara is a notable prospect that could easily make an impact in left field with Josh Hamilton already hurt and if Ian Desmond doesn't pan out in left. Gallo's power is elite, and he made strides this spring with his plate patience. Profar's shoulder concerns have put him off the fantasy radar the last two years, but he's one to watch if he falls into playing time, too.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar returns to action

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 17:38:25 -0800

Texas Rangers INF Jurickson Profar (shoulder) went 1-for-2 with a single, walk and run scored in a Cactus League game versus the Kansas City Royals Thursday, March 3.

Fantasy Tip: Profar started a game at shortstop for the first time since November 2013 and had no issues with his throws. He has been sidelined for the better part of the last two seasons due to shoulder issues and is expected to begin the season in the minors. Profar should continue to be monitored in AL-only and deep mixed fantasy formats, along with keeper and dynasty leagues.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar back with a bang

Mon, 29 Feb 2016 14:17:22 -0800

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar (shoulder) hit a home run off SP Cole Hamels in the first pitch of his first at-bat in an intrasquad game Monday, Feb. 29, and he also had two impressive plays in his first appearance at shortstop in more than two years. Profar is expected to work out at shortstop all spring, but the Rangers don't expect him to open the year on the major league roster.

Fantasy Tip: More time in the minors this year to start the season means you'll need to show patience with Profar in 2016. It's a buy-low opportunity with him this year if you have room to stash him in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar continues to progress

Wed, 24 Feb 2016 14:28:47 -0800

Texas Rangers SS Jurickson Profar (shoulder) made relay and cutoff throws Wednesday, Feb. 24. He had been limited to throwing to bases since arriving at training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Profar's fantasy value is still tied primarily to keeper/dynasty formats, as he doesn't project to crack the roster to start the season. In yearly formats, he is best viewed as a late-round target to stash in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar limited to SS

Tue, 23 Feb 2016 19:27:48 -0800

The Texas Rangers want SS Jurickson Profar (shoulder) to focus primarily at shortstop after being sidelined for most of the past two years.

Fantasy Tip: Profar is likely to see most of his time at the designated hitter spot to start, while slowly working his way back into the field. With Prince Fielder at DH, Elvis Andrus at shortstop, and Rougned Odor at second base, Profar is blocked from an everyday job right now anyway. Use him only as a reserve in AL-only fantasy leagues to start.
