Sanchez, Meadows and Blandino Home Runs Lead West To Fall Stars Victory - BaseballAmerica.com

A Jurickson Profar sighting.

There were also positive signs for Rangers shortstop Jurickson Profar as he tries to prove he’s healthy after missing two full seasons with a shoulder injury. Profar isn’t playing in the field yet–he was the West’s designated hitter, but he did have a pair of singles, a pair of walks and two stolen bases.

Oakland A’s prospect Sean Manaea impresses in Fall Stars Game

“When I first got to the Royals, I tried different mechanics and it felt like I was really robotic and I didn’t feel smooth at all,” he said. “I went back going over my head (in the wind-up) and I struggled for a long time because I wasn’t used to it, because I had been doing something different for a really long time. But throughout the year everything started clicking and felt good, and that’s what I’ve been doing since. It was a lot of fun.”
