Adding Jurickson Profar worth the risk to fantasy owners

Fantasy baseball owners got more than just a punch for the ages out of the Rangers-Blue Jays brawl in the middle of May. That was definitely the highlight, but as a result, Texas recalled Triple-A infielder Jurickson Profar. The 22-year-old’s stay in the big leagues was expected to be short-lived, but his .284/.356/.426 slash line along with five home runs and four steals in 189...

The foggy circumstances surrounding Jurickson Profar should frustrate fantasy owners

Rougned Odor couldn’t carry Lou Gehrig’s jock, but for the sake of the analogy - Jurickson Profar is walking in Wally Pipp’s shoes – at least for the moment. The Rangers’ current roster construction is all but forcing the organization’s one-time top prospect back to the minors this weekend. For fantasy owners always in search of middle infield upgrades, the lack of further...

How should the Texas Rangers handle Jurickson Profar?

At one point a red carpet prospect for the Texas Rangers, Jurickson Profar has now become a confusing piece on the Rangers board. As is often the case, injuries can wreak havoc on a prospect’s projections.
