Insight: He suffered another strain, which could sideline him an additional 8-to-12 weeks. At this point, it's fair to wonder if we'll see Profar on a big league diamond at all this season.

Insight: Where's Ian Kinsler when you need him? With Profar out of the picture, the Rangers will probably turn to Adam Rosales (.190, 5 HR, 12 RBI) at second base. Free agent infielder Stephen Drew could also be an option for Texas.

Description: Jurickson Profar will start in left field Saturday versus Houston.
Insight: It's the first time Profar has played the outfield in 42 big league appearances. Profar (.259, 3 HR, 9 RBI) hasn't played much since Ian Kinsler's return from the DL. If he can master the outfield, Profar might be able to be in the lineup almost everyday.
 
6/26/2013 8:01:00 PM
Description: Rangers manager Ron Washington said Jurickson Profar is still not ready to play the outfield, according to ESPNDallas.com.
Insight: With Elvis Andrus signed long-term at shortstop and second baseman Ian Kinsler coming off the DL on June 15, Profar doesn't have anywhere to play unless he learns corner outfield. The rookie, who came into this season as baseball's top prospect, is hitting .263 with two homers and seven RBI in 28 games. Washington said he'll start Profar Thursday for the first time since June 20.

Description: The Rangers are planning on using Jurickson Profar in the outfield now that Ian Kinsler has returned from the DL. SOURCE: Anthony Andro, Fox Sports Southwest
Insight: It's a fantasy double-whammy. Not only does Profar (.277, 2 HR, 7 RBI) get to stay in the big leagues, but soon he'll be fantasy-eligible at a new position. Jackpot!
 
6/13/2013 9:28:00 AM
Description: Texas infielder Jurickson Profar went 3-for-5 with a double and one RBI Wednesday night against the Indians.
Insight: Profar has gone 5-for-9 over his last three appearances to raise his average from .254 to .292. The Rangers are debating whether or not to keep their top prospect in the big leagues as a utilityman when Ian Kinsler returns from the DL next week.
 
6/12/2013 6:22:00 PM
Description: Texas infielder Jurickson Profar has a chance to stay on the roster even after second baseman Ian Kinsler is activated from the disabled list. SOURCE: T.R. Sullivan, MLB.com
Insight: There are really two schools of thought on this. Keeping Profar (.269, 2 HR, 6 RBI) around as a utility man could benefit the Rangers and it would give Profar some valuable big league experience. On the other hand, Profar would be sitting on the bench a lot where in Triple-A he would be playing everyday. Kinsler should return from his intercostal injury sometime next week.
 
Cold6/9/2013 5:56:00 PM
Description: Rangers infielder Jurickson Profar went 0-for-5 Sunday.
Insight: The 20-year-old Profar has hit a bit of a slump, going 4-for-26 (.154) over his last six games. His average has dropped from .324 to .254 in that span. The talented youngster hasn't made a big impact so far but has tremendous upside.
 
5/20/2013 8:33:00 PM
Description: Texas manager Ron Washington told ESPN Dallas that Jurickson Profar will split playing time at second base with Leury Garcia while Ian Kinsler is out.
Insight: The 20-year-old Profar went 3-for-17 in a short stint with Texas at the end of last season. It's no secret that Profar is the team's best long-term option at second base so if he's playing well, we'd expect Washington to give him the most reps.
