Jurickson Profar
26-Year-Old ShortstopSS
Oakland Athletics
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Once considered the top prospect in baseball, Profar's previous five seasons had been marred by injury and disappointment, but that finally changed in 2018. The Rangers dealt with a myriad of injuries but he was able to stay healthy and play in 146 games, finishing with a 108 wRC+. His 20 home runs were an especially welcome sight, as Profar totaled only 17 home runs between Triple-A and MLB over the previous two seasons. His 13.2% HR/FB was roughly league average, so he could reprise that power output. He was also 10-for-10 on stolen-base attempts. Profar hits the ball to all fields and rarely strikes out (14.8 K%), so he could improve on last year's AVG (.269 BABIP). He was traded to the A's as part of a surprise three-team deal this offseason. In Oakland, he figures to serve as the primary second baseman, but could also get occasional starts at shortstop and third base. Read Past Outlooks
