Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar drove in two runs with a groundout and sacrifice fly Monday, May 20, against the Oakland Athletics. He is the fifth player in franchise history to drive in multiple runs from the ninth spot in the order without the benefit of a hit. The last player to accomplish the feat was INF D'Angelo Jimenez back in 2006.

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.

The Texas Rangers have placed 2B Ian Kinsler (intercostal) on the 15-day disabled list because of a right intercostal strain. In a corresponding move, the team recalled SS Jurickson Profar from Triple-A Round Rock.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should look into adding Profar if he is available in their leagues since he will see the majority of time at second base and he is one of the top prospects in the league. It is not known how long Kinsler will be out so owners should look to stash him on their bench or disabled list.

Updating previous reports, Texas Rangers 2B Ian Kinsler (ribs) will be evaluated Sunday, May 19, to determine if he will be placed on the 15-day disabled list and replaced on the 25-man roster with INF Jurickson Profar.
Fantasy Tip: More clarity coming on the status of Profar, widely considered the top prospect in baseball. A roster move is not definite at this point, but if he's unowned in your league, you shouldn't wait for an official transaction to add him everywhere. Even if Kinsler has a short stay on the sidelines, Profar may hold onto a spot somewhere else in the starting lineup if he proves capable of handling big-league action. Plus, it helps to stash him in many formats regardless of his MLB status.

The Texas Rangers are expected to recall INF Jurickson Profar from Triple-A Round Rock. He is currently in Arlington and no corresponding roster move has been announced yet.
Fantasy Tip: It has been rumored that 2B Ian Kinsler (ribs) is headed to the 15-day disabled list because of bruised ribs, so Profar is expected to step in as the regular second baseman if Kinsler is sidelined for an extended period of time. Profar has gotten off to a strong start this season at Round Rock, batting .278 with four homers, 19 RBIs and six steals. Feel free to add him to your roster in all formats, even if you have to wait for him to come up.

Texas Rangers SS Jurickson Profar (thumb) is expected to be fine after hyperextending his left thumb during a swing Tuesday, May 7.
Fantasy Tip: Profar was the consensus No. 1 prospect heading into the 2013 season, and he even was being drafted in some mixed leagues. With Elvis Andrus and Ian Kinsler locked into the middle infield, Profar is blocked, for now. If there is an injury to the infield this summer, expect Profar to be the first one recalled.

Texas Rangers SS Jurickson Profar is hitting .281 with a homer, six RBIs and three steals in 32 at-bats at Triple-A Round Rock. He also has 10 strikeouts and eight walks.
Fantasy Tip: The strikeouts are a bit concerning, but the walks are showing an improvement in plate discipline. He's blocked right now, but baseball's No. 1 prospect could play a role sometime this season.

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar (side) was scratched from the game Thursday, April 11, with Triple-A Round Rock because he had a side muscle tighten up Wednesday, April 10. It is believed to be a precautionary move.
Wed, 03 Apr 2013 14:24:23 -0700
The Texas Rangers have no intention of trading SS Jurickson Profar even though they have signed SS Elvis Andrus to a contract extension.
Sun, 31 Mar 2013 13:14:05 -0700
The Texas Rangers have sent 2B Jurickson Profar, RP Cory Burns and RP Josh Lindblom to Triple-A Round Rock.
Fantasy Tip: Owners who picked up Profar in mixed or American League-only leagues will have to wait for him to get the promotion at some point during the season.
