The Texas Rangers will have SS Jurickson Profar begin the season at Triple-A Round Rock, with INF Leury Garcia serving as the utility infielder. OF Jim Adduci, C Eli Whiteside and SP Nate Robertson are also heading to Round Rock. P Coty Woods has cleared waivers, and the Rangers are trying to work out a trade with the Colorado Rockies.
Fantasy Tip: Profar will be up eventually this year and is still worth grabbing in the late rounds in mixed formats if you can stash him. He should be owned in every AL-only and keeper league.

Texas Rangers P Nate Robertson is now throwing from a three-quarters arm slot as he competes for a roster spot this spring, and he's been pleased with the results so far. "I've had four elbow surgeries and I knew I needed to do something to give me another chance," Robertson said. "I taught it to myself this offseason and I'm glad to see I've got movement on my pitches. I'm not a velocity guy. I can't tough 94 or 95 mph anymore. So it's third on my priority list behind command and movement. The more velocity you have, the greater your margin of error. I have to locate my pitches and I did that today."
