RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Profar had another lost season, making it two in a row, due to continued issues with shoulder muscles. The injuries have prevented him from taking a professional at-bat for nearly two full years, costing the former top prospect valuable development time. Still just 22 (he'll turn 23 in February), Profar still has plenty of time to carve out a major-league career and he was a surprise addition to Arizona Fall League rosters this winter. Through 19 games (all at DH), he's slashed .264/.352/.458 with 11 walks against just 10 strikeouts. His return to relative health has his name coming up in trade rumors this winter, and there's no real room for him in Texas with Rougned Odor and Elvis Andrus entrenched up the middle and Joey Gallo set to inherit third base, but the first step in Profar regaining fantasy relevance again is simply to show he's healthy and get back to playing.

2015

Profar missed all of 2014 with shoulder troubles. He first tore a muscle in his right shoulder during spring training, and then had multiple setbacks throughout the season. He had platelet-rich plasma injections to the joint in late September and a late October MRI said the shoulder was 95 percent clean. However, it was not clean enough for him to play in the Arizona Fall League as originally hoped. He seemed to be making steady progress throughout the winter, but a follow-up MRI showed increase strain in the subscapularis muscle in his shoulder, and the decision was made to schedule surgery. Profar is expected to miss the entire 2015 season as a result, but he's still just 22 years old and those in keeper and dynasty leagues who are willing to ride out the storm could use this to get the talented infielder at a discount.

2014

Profar was called up in early May with the injury to Ian Kinsler and remained in the majors, largely in a utility role, for the rest of the season. He hit poorly in that role, slashing just .234/.308/.336 and fanning 63 times in 286 at-bats. The winter trade of Kinsler to Detroit throws the second base door wide open, and it's expected that Profar will be the heavy favorite to begin the 2014 season as the everyday second baseman. With regular at-bats and without having to learn a new position, Profar should be able to deliver much better results the second time around.

2013

The current holder, in many eyes, of the "Best Prospect In Baseball" title, Profar proved that 2011's breakout was legit, racking up 26 doubles, seven triples and 14 homers in 480 at-bats at Double-A Frisco as a 19-year-old. He showed solid plate discipline (66:79 BB:K) on top of the power, and got a brief taste of the majors late in the season (homering in his first at-bat). Texas currently has Ian Kinsler and Elvis Andrus up the middle, but there's been talk of Kinsler moving to the outfield to make room in 2013 for Profar despite not having a single at-bat at Triple-A. Profar's name has been tossed around in trade rumors too, but there's little doubt that he will be a fantasy asset once he ascends to the majors for good.

2012

Profar took a big leap forward in 2011, showing much more power than in his professional debut the year prior, as he racked up 37 doubles, eight triples and 12 homers in 420 at-bats at Low-A Hickory as an 18-year-old. Mix in tremendous plate discipline (65:63 BB:K) considering his age, and there's something potentially really special here. He gets praise for his defense at shortstop, and there's no large platoon splits for him from either side of the plate (.852 OPS against lefties, .897 against righties). The only knock on him entering the year was some scouts wondered if they were already looking at the finished product; Profar's big leap forward in the power department should quiet that talk. This could be baseball's next great shortstop.

2011

Profar made his professional debut at short-season Spokane as a 17-year-old and showed advanced skills for a young player against some college-aged competition. His overall .250/.323/.373 line doesn't jump off the page, but he managed 28 walks and 23 extra-base hits (including four home runs) in 252 at-bats and was also successful in 8-of-11 stolen base attempts. He's still several years away, but there's already talk that he could force Elvis Andrus off of shortstop once he's ready. A switch-hitter, he hit .258/.335/.389 against right-handed pitching and hit well overall in August (.284/.354/.477 in 88 at-bats) showing that he's capable of making adjustments against advanced pitching.
