Profar seems to just be the “other possibility” when discussing trading an infielder. He is only under arbitration for 2 more seasons, so one option is that he could be handed the starting 3B job, as mentioned above, when Beltre retires. If this happens, expect an extension sometime in the next season or two. If not, it’s possible he’s traded, as he was once the #1 prospect in baseball, and finally showed some promise in the 2018 season. He’s the one most likely traded if Beltre decides to put on the cleats for one more year. It’s also worth noting that Nolan Arenado is a free agent after the 2019 season, so if the Rangers are on the verge of breaking out, signing a big free agent or two could be in the cards to open up the new Rangers stadium.
