    • Profar will start at second base and bat second Wednesday against the Indians. With Khris Davis (hip) likely headed to the 10-day injured list, the Athletics will be forced to shake things up in the top half of the lineup. While manager Bob Melvin may experiment with a few different configurations, Profar will be one of the early beneficiaries of Davis' absence. After slotting anywhere between fifth and eighth in the order over his last six starts, Profar will slide into the two hole, batting in front of Matt Chapman and Matt Olson in the series finale.

    • Profar went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in a win over the Indians on Monday. Profar's average finally made its long-awaited vault over the Mendoza Line, with his 379-foot solo home run in the second inning also serving as his second in the last five games. Profar may finally be starting to awaken out of his season-long slumber at the plate, as he's now 6-for-12 with a double, Monday's round tripper and two RBI over his last three contests. Whether he can keep the momentum going is another matter, but Profar's .262 average across 67 May plate appearances is a vast improvement over the .165 figure he generated in April.

    • Profar went 3-for-3 with an RBI double and a run in a win over the Tigers on Saturday. The struggling infielder has had an eventful series, adding his first three-hit effort of the season to the grand slam he launched in Thursday's 17-3 blowout win. Profar is still slashing an anemic .194/.259/.335 for the season (170 plate appearances), but he's hit .323 across 36 plate appearances with men in scoring position. That's led to a solid 24 RBI for Profar, 11 of which he's collected over the first 13 games of May.

    • Profar went 1-for-5 with a grand slam Thursday against the Tigers. Profar launched the first grand slam of his career in the third inning. It was his fifth homer of the season and third in his past nine games, though he has gone just 5-for-33 in that span. Batting second for the majority of that period, Profar was pushed down to sixth in the lineup for Thursday's action. If he can't make stronger contact more consistently, he may continue to bat lower in the order or potentially lose playing time to Chad Pinder.

    • Profar will start at second base and bat sixth Thursday against the Tigers. Profar made each of his last six starts as the Athletics' No. 2 hitter, but went just 3-for-25 with a 3:6 BB:K over that stretch. With the move to the more favorable lineup spot having failed to spark Profar's bat, manager Bob Melvin will drop the infielder back down in the order. Profar will carry a .181/.247/.306 season line into Thursday's series opener and could be in danger of slipping into a utility role if he doesn't catch fire at the plate soon.
