Jurickson Profar went 2-for-4 and scored a run in Saturday's win over the Royals.
He tripled in the fourth inning and scored on a Joey Gallo double. Profar also doubled in the ballgame. The former top overall prospect has struggled with injury and poor performance the last few years but seems to finally be displaying some of his fabled talent on a consistent basis. The 25-year-old has a .748 OPS with three homers, 26 RBI and 20 runs scored in 47 games. That is not star-level production but it is light-years better than what he had done in the majors previously. He may yet develop into a good fantasy asset. May 26 - 10:04 PM

Jurickson Profar is not in the Rangers' lineup Thursday against the Royals.

It's surprising to see him sit after going 3-for-8 with six RBI over his last two games. Hanser Alberto will handle shortstop in Profar's place and bat eighth against KC left-hander Danny Duffy.

Jurickson Profar posted a bases-clearing three-run double in the sixth inning Wednesday against the Yankees.

The big knock off of reliever David Robertson was enough to push the Rangers over the hump as they held on for a wild 12-10 victory. Profar is still slashing .237/.313/.410 so far this season, but he also has 26 RBI through 45 games, which ties his career-high in the category. He's finally healthy and seeing regular playing time with Elvis Andrus sidelined, but there's still not enough here for him to be worth a pickup in most mixed fantasy leagues.

Jurickson Profar swatted a three-run homer in the first inning on Tuesday, propelling the Rangers to a 6-4 victory over the visiting Yankees.

Profar wasted no time putting his mark on this game, crushing a no-doubter off of Domingo German to give the Rangers the early 3-0 lead in this one. It would be his lone hit in four at-bats on the night. Profar, who continues to see everyday action at shortstop with Elvis Andrus sidelined, is hitting .230/.304/.401 with three homers and 23 RBI on the season.

Jurickson Profar went 1-for-3 with an RBI double and a sacrifice fly in Saturday's loss to the White Sox.

Profar kicked off the scoring via an RBI double against Lucas Giolito in the second inning and later hit a sacrifice fly. The former top prospect has been seeing the ball well of late, having collected at least one hit in eight of his last 10 games. For the campaign as a whole, the 25-year-old infielder is slashing .234/.308/.390 with two home runs, 20 RBI and 16 runs scored in 141 at-bats. While he's received playing time in the absence of Elvis Andrus, he hasn't done much with it.

Jurickson Profar went 2-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored against the White Sox on Friday.

Profar gave the Rangers the early edge with a two-run single in the first inning. Though the game was already well in hand, he tacked on another run with an RBI single in the ninth. The 25-year-old former top prospect is seeing regular time at shortstop with Elvis Andrus out, but he’s just not producing enough on a regular basis to justify a pickup in mixed fantasy leagues.
May 19 - 1:10 AM

Jurickson Profar plated the lone run in Friday’s win over the Astros with a sacrifice fly in the seventh inning.

Profar also doubled in the victory. The 25-year-old is getting a chance at regular playing time with Elvis Andrus (elbow) sidelined, but he hasn’t done much with it so far. The former top prospect is batting just .223/.313/.384 over 34 games.
May 12 - 12:14 AM

Jurickson Profar hit an RBI triple and scored two runs in Thursday's win over the Red Sox.

Profar smacked a tailing liner that evaded Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr., bouncing to the wall to plate a run and allow Profar to glide into third. The triple was his first of the year. He'll likely never live up to the lofty hopes many had for him as a prospect, but the 25-year-old is carving out a role for himself in Arlington, playing all over the diamond for the Rangers. Profar is hitting .244/.350/.384 in 27 games this year.
May 4 - 12:09 AM

Jurickson Profar hit a two-run home run, his first of the season, in Saturday's win over the Blue Jays.

Profar destroyed a Jaime Garcia offering in the second inning, ripping it off the facade of the upper deck in left field. You certainly wouldn't know it was his first of the year with how decisive he hit it. Profar has been filling in all over the diamond for the Rangers in the early going, hitting .227/.346/.333 in 22 games.

Jurickson Profar (concussion) is back in the Rangers' lineup Friday.

Profar missed two games after suffering a concussion on a collision at second base Monday but has cleared the league's concussion protocol and is ready to go. He's at shortstop and batting second against Felix Hernandez and the Mariners.
Apr 20 - 3:59 PM

Jurickson Profar (concussion) is out of the Rangers' lineup on Tuesday night against the Rays.

Profar suffered a mild concussion on Monday night when he landed head-first after a collision near the second base bag. It sounds like the Rangers will wait one more day to see if he needs a 7-day disabled list stint. Drew Robinson is at second base and Isaiah Kiner-Falefa is at shortstop on Tuesday versus Tampa Bay.
Apr 17 - 6:08 PM

Jurickson Profar will be monitored for concussion symptoms after he left Monday's game versus the Rays following a collision at second base with Mallex Smith.

Profar was unable to avoid Smith's slide while trying to turn a double play, was flipped over and landed head-first on the turf. It's a tough break for a guy who is slated for a regular role due to injuries in the Rangers' infield. Hopefully Profar will be OK.
Apr 16 - 8:43 PM

Jurickson Profar departed Monday's game against the Rays with an undisclosed injury.

Profar got slid into and flipped by Mallex Smith and may have suffered a concussion. He had to be helped off the field. The Rangers should have more on the infielder's status shortly.
Apr 16 - 7:59 PM

Jurickson Profar went 0-for-4 with a walk Tuesday against the Angels.

Profar drew the start at second base in place of Rougned Odor (hamstring) and also batted second, but he had a forgettable night like the rest of the Rangers offense. The former top prospect has drawn seven walks already this season but has just two hits in 19 at-bats. He should play regularly while Odor is out.
Apr 10 - 11:19 PM

Jurickson Profar will hit second Tuesday against the Angels.

It's a nice spot for Profar, who should see regular playing time at second base while Rougned Odor (hamstring) is sidelined. The 25-year-old has dealt with numerous injuries while putting up a weak .227/.311/.326 batting line in the majors, but he's worth a try in deeper fantasy leagues.
