#1 Prospect Profar Replaces Kinsler
At age 16 Jurickson Profar was playing at the Senior League World Series in Bangor. At 19 years old he made his MLB debut late last year. Now at 20, Profar is up from the minors and back in the bigs.
He is baseball’s #1 prospect and he’s getting a chance to prove it while Texas second baseman Ian Kinsler goes on the DL.
At triple-A this season, Profar hit .278 with 4 home runs and 19 RBI.
Back in August of 2008, Profar helped his Curacao team finish as Sr League World runner-up at Mansfield Stadium in Bangor.
