Rangers Rangers phenom Jurickson Profar gets first start at third

Quote:
Jurickson Profar, who showed off his power with a home run in Sundayís Futures Game, is sliding from shortstop to third base for the first time as a pro for Double-A Frisco tonight.

Itís a bit curious; not only do the Rangers already have a top-flight third baseman in Adrian Beltre, but they also have an excellent third-base prospect in Mike Olt playing side-by-side with Profar at Frisco.

However, Olt is currently sidelined with a bruised left hand, according to Frisco announcer Alex Vispoli, opening up third for Profar.

Itís not completely new for Profar to be taken off shortstop; heís also played 12 games at second base this year. The Rangers still arenít sure how things are going to play out for the long haul, given that they have All-Stars at second base, third base and shortstop. Profar certainly has the glove to stay at short, though he may never be quite as smooth as Elvis Andrus there.

Fortunately, the Rangers arenít going to be rushed into any decisions. As talented as Profar is ó most regard him as the top position prospect in the minors ó heís still not likely to be ready before the second half of 2013 and possibly not until 2014. The Rangers could have a tough call to make then, though. They currently have Andrus under control through 2014, Beltre through 2015 and Ian Kinsler through 2017.
