FANTASY BASEBALL ISSUES: JURICKSON PROFAR FINALLY MAKES HIS WAY BACK TO MAJORS

It may only last for just a week but the promotion of Texas Rangers seocnd baseman and former top prospect Jurickson Profar was noteworthy Friday as he is slotted into the number 2 spot in the batting order and will fill-in while Rougned Odor serves his 7-game suspension.  After missing two full seasons with very serious shoulder trouble, Profar finally got a clean bill of health for 2016 and already we are seing why he was such a highly sought after prospect to begin with.  Profar goes into his season debut with the Rangers with minor league numbers that included a .284 average with 4 home runs and 5 stolen bases.  The athleticism and power/speed game that Profar was advertised to have way back when he was first drafted is apparently still there and at the shallow second base spot, his abilities are even more intriguing.  Right now Profar should be picked up in all formats due to his natural skills and for the chance that he could stick if he has a big week.  Nice story but this one is far from having is final chapter written.
