FANTASY BASEBALL LINEUP ISSUES: JURICKSON PROFAR NOW TRYING OUT FIRST BASE FOR NEXT TRICK

We have already covered quite extensively the terrific comeback story of Texas Rangers infielder Jurickson Profar who came back from two completely missed seasons with serious injuries to return to the team in May and proceed to pick up where he left off in terms of being arguably the most hyped prospect in the game.  While the hype has more than dimmed since before the string of injuries got going, Profar has shown that the power/speed talent remained as he hit 5 home runs with 4 stolen bases before his promotion and then proceeded to bat .370 with 2 home runs in 47 at-bats with the Rangers.  Now we hear the report that Profar will debut at first base Tuesday night, with Prince Fielder at DH, and Rougned Odor at second.  Any additional eligibility is always a bonus and the growing status of Profar is getting even more impressive.  If Profar is somehow still on your league's waiver wire, then the rest of the owners are asleep.  The talent is clearly still there and as long as he can remain healthy, Profar looks primed to be an ultimate post-hype sleeper made good.
