Could this finally be the year for Jurickson Profar? He’s projected to start everyday in the outfield for Texas and that might be exactly what he needs.
Starting in center field for Team Netherlands, Profar’s performance helped lead them on a cinderella run coming within one win of playing Team USA in the championship game.
Profar had one of the best performances in the entire tournament. Among players with at least 15 at-bats Profar finished fifth in average, seventh in OBP, seventh in slugging and seventh in OPS. Profar also had the second most hits with 13 and led the tournament in doubles with five.
Profars perfomance was encouraging for Rangers fan. If Profar can receive consistent playing time, he could add immense value to the lineup.
