2017 FANTASY BASEBALL BRIEF: JURICKSON PROFAR TO MAN LEFTFIELD FOR RANGERS

With the Texas Rangers making their signing of first baseman Mike Napoli official on Thursday, the lineup in the field for the team shifted around a bit.  With Napoli on first, former top infield prospect Jurickson Profar will move to the outfield where he will be the everyday guy in left.  Still just 23, Profar was healthy for the first time in three years last season when he made his way back to the majors and flashed some of the old ability that made him so hype in the first place.  Overall Profar batted .239 with 5 home runs and 2 steals in just 272 at-bats; which while not great; was enough to be a part of the everyday plans for 2017.  With some MLB seasoning under his belt, Profar could take another step forward this season in a great ballpark and with versatility virtually at every spot on the field.  Profar makes for a great late round pick on the versatility alone and the remaining upside is solid.
