Rangers hope to find more at bats for Profar in 2017

Little by little the Texas Rangers regular season roster is being puzzle-pieced back together.

Jurickson Profar returning to the team with 11 days to go before the move is made to Globe Life Park.

In 7 games with team Netherlands, Profar hit .464….but it may be a base-running gaffe, where he was picked off first base, he'll be remembered most for in a semifinal loss.

Jurickson Profar/Rangers Infielder: A chance to win that last game so…I made mistakes. I made a mistake and we had an opportunity to win that game. I'm ready to forget about that and ready for the season here.

Yes, the Rangers manager was watching….and no he's not concerned about the play lingering in Profar's mind.

Jeff Banister/Rangers Manager: Jurickson got caught up in the moment. I'm going to jump out in front of any other question that gets asked about this. No! I'm not going to sit down and have a conversation with Jurickson Profar about what happened on another team. He's a professional. He's a major league player. So if you're going to ask me if I need to have a conversation with Jurickson Profar, the answer is no!

Profar is an infielder for the Rangers….but he played center field for his national team.

Jurickson Profar: I like it. It's like shortstop but a little bit farther. You can see everything. I love it!

If his bat is as hot as it was at the WBC, we should expect more time in the outfield for the versatile Texas Ranger.
