Rangers | Jurickson Profar to split time at 2B

Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington said INFs Jurickson Profar and Leury Garcia will split time at second base with 2B Ian Kinsler (intercostal) on the disabled list. Garcia started at second Sunday, May 19. Profar hit two home runs with Triple-A Round Rock Saturday, May 18, to extend his hitting streak to eight games. He had 14 hits in his last 33 at-bats with six runs, two doubles, three home runs and eight RBIs. Profar is likely to go back to the minors when Kinsler returns, because the team wants him playing every day. Manager Ron Washington said Kinsler could be out only five to six days.

Fantasy Tip: Profar should be owned in all leagues, even if his stay in the majors is short-lived this time around. Kinsler is known to be a slower healer, though, so that could buy Profar a little more time.
