Breaking down second base in the AL West

Jurickson Profar may have a bright future in the major leagues but he's still no Ian Kinsler at second base.

By the numbers: Jurickson Profar, among other 2nd year players, ready to make a big leap in his sophomore season

Jurickson Profar, 2B, Texas Rangers – As far as debuts go, Jurickson Profar’s was about as underwhelming as they come.

With a .101 isolated power (six home runs) and just two stolen bases he offered very little of what we expected heading into his rookie campaign. He did...
