Padres' Jurickson Profar: Back in San Diego on one-year deal
Profar agreed to a one-year, $1 million contract with the Padres on Monday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
He can earn an additional $1.5 million in incentives based on plate appearances. Profar had a nice finish with the Padres last season (.776 OPS in 14 games) after a disastrous run with the Rockies (.680 OPS in 111 games) and is back for another stint in San Diego. As things stand currently, Profar probably vaults to the top of the Padres' depth chart in left field, although it wouldn't be a surprise to see the club bring in additional help.... See More ...

Padres' Jurickson Profar: Big night in Chicago
Profar went 2-for-5 with a double, four RBI and one run scored in Saturday's 6-1 win over the White Sox.
The 30-year-old got the best of Mike Clevinger on Saturday, lacing a bases-clearing double in the first frame and adding an RBI single in the second, which chased the White Sox starter from the game. In 13 games since Profar rejoined the Padres on Sept. 8, he has gone 11-for-39 (.282) with two doubles, one home run, six RBI and four runs. Between Colorado and San Diego, the veteran outfielder has posted a season-long slash line of .240/.320/.368 with 27 doubles, nine home runs, 45 RBI, 55 runs and one steal through 124 games (515 plate appearances)....

Padres' Jurickson Profar: Leads offense in loss
Profar went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run and a double Saturday in a loss to the Astros.
Profar signed a minor-league contract to return to the Padres organization Sept. 1 and got called up to the big club Friday. He made the start at first base one day later and gave the Padres their first lead in the fourth inning with his two-run blast to right field. He ended the contest as one of two San Diego players with multiple hits, though his contributions weren't enough to carry the team to a win. Profar could be in the mix to get starts at first base down the stretch -- Garrett Cooper and Matt Carpenter have been splitting time there of late with Jake Cronenworth (wrist) and Ji-Man Choi (ankle) potentially out for the season....

Padres' Jurickson Profar: Officially back with Padres
The Padres selected Profar's contract from Triple-A El Paso on Friday.
Profar inked a minor-league deal with San Diego a week ago after being released by the Rockies and is now back in the big leagues with his former club.

Padres' Jurickson Profar: Headed back to majors
Profar is expected to have his contract selected by the Padres on Friday, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Profar joined the Padres on a minor-league deal Sept. 1 after being let go by the Rockies. It's unclear what type of role he may have down the stretch, particularly because he struggled to a .236/.316/.364 line across 471 plate appearances in Colorado.... See More ... See Less

Profar signed a minor-league contract with the Padres on Friday, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Profar left the Padres after declining a player option this past offseason but was cut loose by the Rockies last month after slashing just .236/.316/.364. He posted a .244/.333/.375 line with 26 homers in 345 games for the Padres between 2020-21. Profar will report to Triple-A El Paso but has a chance to be added to the big-league club soon, especially with Jake Cronenworth (wrist) out.... See More ... See Less

Rockies' Jurickson Profar: On bench, could be hurting
Profar is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox due to what appears to be a minor injury, Luke Zahlmann of The Denver Gazette reports.
Though the report doesn't clarify the nature of Profar's injury and the Rockies haven't provided an explanation on the matter, Zahlmann relays that the 30-year-old may be getting maintenance for the second day in a row while he eases his way back from the twisted left knee that he suffered one week ago. Even if Profar hasn't suffered any setbacks with the knee and is cleared to play ahead of Tuesday's series opener in Tampa Bay, the Rockies may be prepared to move him into more of a part-time role. Profar is on an expiring deal and hasn't made a strong case to warrant everyday playing time on a rebuilding club, as he's slashing just .216/.290/.340 in 28 games since the All-Star break....
