Jurickson Profar's hot spring should raise his draft stock

Jurickson Profar is a budding star who is getting the proceed with caution sticker this draft season and at 21, for good reason. His performance thus far in March is extremely encouraging though. He is in an excellent lineup, will get everyday at bats and has an arrow pointing straight up. Don’t go crazy, but moving Profar up your draft board a few notches might be in order. You...

By the numbers: Jurickson Profar, among other 2nd year players, ready to make a big leap in his sophomore season

Jurickson Profar, 2B, Texas Rangers – As far as debuts go, Jurickson Profar’s was about as underwhelming as they come. He posted a .234 batting average, struggled mightily defensively, and offered -0.4 wins above replacement. With a .101 isolated power (six home runs) and just two stolen bases he offered very little of what we expected heading into his rookie campaign. He did...

Why not the Texas Rangers?

With not too much going on at the moment for the Texas Rangers I have been watching more and more World Series coverage. This is a great series because the Boston Red Sox and the St Louis Cardinals are actually two of the best teams in baseball. I personally would have rather seen the Los Angeles Dodgers playing the Red Sox, but the Cardinals still make for some good games. After...
