Rangers recalled INF/OF Jurickson Profar from Triple-A Round Rock.

Profar is starting at third base Friday and is expected to handle the position for at least a few days while Adrian Beltre (ankle) is banged up. He batted only .135/.289/.135 earlier this season before being sent down.
Jun 9 - 5:21 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Rangers will call up INF/OF Jurickson Profar.

Adrian Beltre is dealing with a left ankle injury, one which could potentially lead to a stint on the disabled list. Profar will receive the call up to the Rangers as a depth move. Since initially being optioned to Triple-A at the beginning of May, the former top prospect is hitting .267/.342/.427 with two homers and 20 RBI across 131 at-bats. In 15 games with the Rangers in April, he slashed .135/.289/.135. While he is still just 24 years old, fantasy parties would be best off leaving Profar on the waiver wire, as he just has not proven to be a consistent performer when given opportunities.

Rangers optioned INF/OF Jurickson Profar to Triple-A Round Rock.

The move clears a spot for the newly-claimed Pete Kozma on the active roster. Profar has hit just .227/.317/.314 with five homers in 353 plate appearances in the majors dating back to the start of last season. The hope is that he can get on track offensively with regular at-bats in the minors.
May 1 - 10:17 AM

Jurickson Profar is likely to be optioned to Triple-A Round Rock once waiver claim Pete Kozma reports to the Rangers.

Profar is hitting .135 without an extra-base hit so far this season and isn't playing much at this point, so the Rangers might as well give him regular playing time in the minors. The former top prospect is a career .229/.309/.328 hitter over 199 games in the majors.
Apr 30 - 2:48 PM

Jurickson Profar finished 0-for-2 in the Rangers' loss to the Twins on Monday.

Profar is now batting just .135 with zero extra-base hits in 46 plate appearances this season. The former top prospect is a non-factor in fantasy.
Apr 24 - 11:52 PM

Jurickson Profar is starting in left field and batting ninth for the Rangers on Monday.

He's started two straight and five out of the last six in left, although Profar is just 4-for-19 with zero extra-base hits so far. The Rangers are facing Jharel Cotton and the A's.
Apr 17 - 5:29 PM

Jurickson Profar is starting in left field and batting ninth for the Rangers in Friday's game versus the Athletics.

It's his first start since Opening Day, as the Rangers have been mixing and matching in left field with Profar, Delino DeShields and Ryan Rua. It figures to continue to be that way until someone gets hot.
Apr 7 - 4:08 PM

Jurickson Profar got the nod over Delino Deshields in left field on Opening Day, but he finished 0-for-4 with two strikeouts against the Indians.

Deshields had the better spring than Profar and appeared likely to get the bulk of the time in left initially, but he wasn't in there tonight. We're assuming that he will be on Tuesday, as Profar didn't make a case for back-to-back starts.
Apr 3 - 10:44 PM

Rangers manager Jeff Banister said Wednesday that Jurickson Profar will see some game action in center field.

Profar played there during the World Baseball Classic, so Banister wants to get a look at him. As of now, Profar figures to see most of his time in left field this season, but he's essentially in a utility role.
Mar 22 - 3:27 PM

Jurickson Profar says his jammed left middle finger is fine and he will continue playing for the Netherlands in the World Baseball Classic.

Profar injured the finger while sliding into a base, but the injury is apparently no big deal. It's obviously good news not only for Profar but for the Netherlands and the Rangers. Profar is expected to see most of his playing time for the Rangers in left field this season.
Mar 10 - 4:38 PM

Jurickson Profar jammed his left middle finger during pool play in the World Baseball Classic.

Team Netherlands advanced out of Pool A with a strong showing in South Korea, and Profar was one of the stars. It's not clear how the injury will affect his status for the second round. Rangers general manager Jon Daniels told reporters Thursday morning that he is in touch with Dutch management.
Mar 9 - 10:48 AM

Jurickson Profar drew a walk-off walk as Team Netherlands defeated Chinese Taipei 6-5 in Pool A play in the World Baseball Classic.

The game was tied 5-5 going into the bottom of the ninth before Dashenko Ricardo reached on an error to begin the frame. Hung-Wen Chen then hit Randolph Oduber with a pitch before Andrelton Simmons singled to load the bases. That set the stage for the walk-off victory. Both the Netherlands and Team Israel went 2-0 in Pool A action, so they will advance to the second round of the tournament.
Mar 8 - 8:26 AM

Jurickson Profar went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and a stolen base as Netherlands defeated Korea 5-0 in Pool A play in the World Baseball Classic.

Profar, who is playing center field, set the tone early by going deep in the first inning. Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons also added a pair of hits, including an RBI double in the second inning. Korea, who is the Pool A host country, is now 0-2 in the tournament.
Mar 7 - 8:41 AM

Jurickson Profar had an RBI single and two walks in three plate appearances Sunday against the Royals.

It was the first Cactus League action of the spring for Profar, who is projected to open the 2017 regular season as the Rangers' primary left fielder. Profar started at shortstop Sunday with Elvis Andrus finishing up his rehabilitation from November hernia surgery. The 24-year-old former top prospect owns a weak .235/.311/.341 batting line in 184 career major league games, but there is still some upside here.
