    • Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Monday that Profar is unlikely to be recalled from Triple-A Round Rock in the final month of the season, Jaylon Thompson of MLB.com reports. "We are pretty well committed to the guys that we have right now that have been here all year long or come up and been challenged with roles and done well," Daniels said. "If another injury or something else happens, we feel we got some guys here that will get those opportunities next." Daniels reiterated that Profar is still viewed as a part of the team's long-term core, but didn't want to bring the infielder or fellow Triple-A standouts Willie Calhoun and Ronald Guzman up to the big leagues without the promise of regular at-bats. Once viewed as one of the top prospects in all of baseball, Profar's development has been stunted by injuries, but he was generally able to stay healthy in 2017 and enjoyed a strong season at Round Rock, slashing .287/.383/.428 across 383 plate appearances.

    • Profar is out of the lineup at Triple-A Round Rock on Monday after expressing frustration at a lack of a trade before the deadline, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports. Profar is hitting .300/.386/.440 for Triple-A Round Rock and is convinced he belongs in the majors somewhere, whether in Texas or not. He has a point, but it's hard to imagine the Rangers will let Profar go through waivers, so the former top prospect will likely have to wait until the offseason to get his wish.

    • Rangers' Jurickson Profar: Headed back to Round Rock
      By RotoWire Staff

      Profar was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports. He'll head back to the minors with Elvis Andrus coming off the paternity list. Profar appeared in two games during his brief call-up with the team, going 3-for-7 with two doubles and two RBI. Considering his .303/.376/.444 slash line at Triple-A, Profar is certainly making a case to rejoin the big-league club in the second half of the season.

    • Profar went 2-for-3 with two doubles, a run scored and two RBI in Wednesday's 8-2 win over the Red Sox. Getting the start at shortstop and hitting seventh, Profar carried forward the momentum that had seen him put together a .373/.440/.478 slash line in 16 games at Triple-A prior to his recall. While it seems like he's been around forever, the one-time top prospect in the Rangers system is still only 24 and may yet carve out a solid big-league career for himself. Given his current form at the plate, when Elvis Andrus returns from the paternity list don't be surprised if Profar sticks around as a utility player.

    • Rangers' Jurickson Profar: Recalled from Round Rock
      By RotoWire Staff

      Profar was called up by the Rangers on Wednesday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Profar comes back up while Elvis Andrus lands on the paternity list prior to Wednesday's series finale against Boston. For the game against the Red Sox, Profar will get the start at short while batting seventh in the order. If Andrus winds up missing another game or two, Profar could be in line to get a couple more starts.
