Jurickson Profar Newsbeat

Thursday, June 02, 2016

Jurickson Profar needs four games a week for long-term stay with Texas Rangers | The Star-Telegram

When you play well, the manager will usually find a way to get you in the lineup.

“In Jurickson’s case, I think the concern and need with him is the everyday process,” Banister said. “When you haven’t played every day for two years, getting the body back up to speed to play every day and continue to play every day, we need to make sure we monitor that.

Texas Rangers: Grant: How will Jurickson Profar situation play out? I see two scenarios | SportsDay

How much trade value does Profar have at this point?

Question: How has Profar been playing in the minors? With the way Elvis and Odor are playing, do you you think we’ll see Profar before September?
Evan Grant: He enters Thursday hitting .293 with a .412 OBP. I’ve heard from some evaluators that there is still some concern about his arm strength, but ain’t nothing wrong with the bat. My gut tells me this: Either Profar will be part of a big trade for a starting pitcher this summer or, over the winter, the Rangers will pursue a deal with the New York Yankees that would send Andrus there and create a spot for Profar. I don’t see him playing a significant role on the 2016 big league team.
