Jurickson Profar was held out of Monday's lineup with Triple-A Round Rock after he expressed frustration for not being traded at the deadline.
Profar has since been placed on the 7-day disabled list in Triple-A. The Rangers reportedly looked around for a potential fit before the deadline, but they were unable to find a deal. The former top prospect has appeared in 22 games with the Rangers this season, but he's spent the majority of the year in Triple-A while batting .300/.386/.440 with four homers, 37 RBI, and a 25/31 K/BB ratio over 67 games. His frustration is understandable, but there's still no clear opening for him on the major league roster. He's under team control through 2019, but his future with Texas is very much in question.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Braves have shown interest in trading for Jurickson Profar.

This could be a good match as the Rangers are looking to add a starter and Jaime Garcia appears to be available. The Braves' system is well-stocked with young arms, which could make Garcia expendable. Texas and Atlanta made a trade last winter with the Braves swapping Brady Feigl and Tyrell Jenkins in exchange for Luke Jackson. Profar has impressed with a .300 average in Triple-A this year, though his success hasn't translated to the big leagues yet (.172 in 58 MLB at-bats this season).
Jul 16 - 12:05 AM

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

He filled in for a few days while Elvis Andrus was on paternity leave. Once considered an elite shortstop prospect, Profar has settled into a utility role in recent years while bouncing between Triple-A and the majors. He'll be back at some point.
Jul 8 - 5:45 PM

Jurickson Profar went 2-for-3 with a run and two RBI in a win over the Red Sox on Wednesday.

He cracked a double to the right field gap that drove in Adrian Beltre and Rougned Odor in the fifth inning. The young prospect struggled mightily before being demoted to Triple-A in late April. He was recalled on Wednesday to fill in for Elvis Andrus while he is on paternity leave. Profar was hitting well in the minors but the former elite prospect's value has bottomed out. He hasn't shown any power or speed in the minor leagues and has a lot of work to do before fantasy owners will get excited again.
Jul 6 - 1:49 AM

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

Profar no longer holds any true fantasy value, but will start in the place of Elvis Andrus (paternity leave) at shortstop against the Red Sox on Wednesday. In 65 prior plate appearances with the big league club, the former top prospect hit just .137/.279/.137.
Jul 5 - 4:16 PM

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

The former No. 1 overall prospect has batted just .137/.279/.137 in 62 plate appearances this season at the major league level.
Jun 16 - 4:24 PM

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.
Jun 7 - 10:19 PM

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.
