Rangers | Jurickson Profar to open at Triple-A?

Texas Rangers SS Jurickson Profar might end up at Triple-A Round Rock to start the season if he doesn't stick in the undesirable role of utility infielder. The depth chart for the team changed following the addition of 1B Lance Berkman. Berkman will serve as the team's designated hitter, keeping 1B Mitch Moreland at first base and 2B Ian Kinsler at second base rather than a position change.

Fantasy Tip: Profar remains one of the top long-term keeper options in fantasy baseball, but his value might take a slight hit in re-draft leagues if he does not start out in the majors. Still, he is worth a look in the later rounds of all AL-only leagues as a stash option. If he doesn't start in Arlington, he will likely be the first player called up if an infielder goes down.
