Rangers manager Ron Washington said Monday that he doesn't intend to play top prospect Jurickson Profar in the outfield this spring.
Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said last week that Profar might end up getting some playing time in the outfield in an effort to increase his versatility and chances of making the team, but Washington apparently isn't on board with the idea. "No," said Washington. "He's going to come in and work on the infield. I have no intentions on him playing the outfield." Assuming Washington holds firm to his plan, we can't see how Profar will get enough playing time to justify keeping him on the major league roster.
