Top 5 Standout Players From Texas Rangers Spring Training

Jurickson Profar

– 2B

I don’t think this is a SURPRISE to anyone. Last season

Jurickson Profar

had a ton of pressure on him to be THE MAN. He was’s top prospect. He did well, but not as well as everyone thought he should have. But, if you keep in mind that he did not get regular playing time, I don’t think he did as poorly as some have said. Knowing that Profar would be the Texas Rangers’ full-time second baseman, I once again had high expectations for this young man and he has not disappointed. His batting line so far is .300/.364/.525. Jurickson Profar has 8 runs, 12 hits, 3 doubles, 2 home runs, one of which was a grand slam and 11 RBI. If you are not impressed by what this 21-year old has done and excited by the potential of what he could bring to the Texas Rangers, you might want to check your pulse.

All-in-all I would say that looking at this list shows that the Texas Rangers now have what they have been missing in the past, which is run support behind the pitching. I know many are concerned about our rotation, but I wanted to stay positive and not hit the red panic button….just yet. I’d love to hear who y’all have been impressed with so far in Spring Training!
