Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar (shoulder) is expected to play in the field "sometime after the middle of the month," according to manager Ron Washington. Profar was 2-for-4 with a grand slam as the designated hitter Thursday, March 6. "He's throwing in drills now and he's up to 100-something feet so once we can get him out there to 190 feet where he can throw and keep the ball with some velocity on it, we'll get him out there," Washington said. "At least, he's throwing in the drills now and that's a good thing."

Fantasy Tip: Profar is expected to be ready for the regular season barring any setbacks, so fantasy owners should feel confident drafting him in the area of Rounds 14 through 16 in re-draft mixed leagues, and much earlier in AL-only and keeper formats.
