Jurickson Profar hit a home run in his first major league at bat. I’m not going off a limb to say I expect big things from this kid. I’m just wondering whether it will be in Texas or somewhere else. With Elvis Adrus blocking him at short, the only options are to trade Andrusor move him to another position, but will he really displace Kinsler or Beltre?
As far as cardboard is concerned, Profar has been featured in most of major prospect sets and insert sets (see Bowman, Bowman’s Brightest, Topps 100), so his cards are easy to come by at the moment and are relatively inexpensive. Unless he really gets some major power numbers I don’t see his cards attaining Trout or Harper status, but now is still the time to buy because next season could really be a breakout for him.
