Profar will start at third base and bat third in the order Sunday against the Indians, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Profar had served in a bench role over the past six days while he's remained in an extended swoon in August, batting just .148 with a .220 on-base percentage in 59 plate appearances this month. While the 23-year-old's versatility has allowed him to see opportunities all over the diamond and in the outfield this season, the Rangers' wealth of hitting options might make it hard for Profar to see everyday playing time until his bat heats up again.

Profar is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rays, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Profar has started back-to-back games in left field, but has been on the bench in favor of Delino DeShields the last two games the Rangers have faced a lefty. That will be the case again Sunday with southpaw Drew Smyly on the hill for the opposing Rays.

Profar will platoon with Delino DeShields depending on pitching matchups, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was announced earlier Wednesday that Profar would serve as the leadoff man against righties, but Grant is reporting that Profar would essentially be out of the order or dropped in the order when the Rangers face lefties. After a hot start to his season, Profar has slashed just .171/.269/.244 over his last 30 games.

Profar will serve as the leadoff hitter against right-handed pitching as a result of the injury to Shin Soo-Choo, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Profar was hitless in four at-bats atop the lineup Tuesday and has really struggled in August with just five hits in 37 at-bats, but it sounds like he'll be the primary leadoff hitter for Texas down the stretch.

Profar went 2-for-6 with a double and two RBI Sunday at the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

In his return to the lineup after a couple days off, Profar drove in a pair of runs with his eighth inning double to give the Rangers a 3-0 lead in a game the team would need extra innings to win. After hitting at least .333 in May and June, he's failed to surpass the .240 mark in July and August. Despite his recent struggles, he's slashing .285/.342/.414 in his rookie campaign.

EDGE Analysis

Profar was given a break after an 0-for-10 streak, but should find himself back in the lineup Sunday especially when you consider the likely day-to-day status for Carlos Beltran.

Profar is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Orioles, John Blake of the Rangers' front office reports.

EDGE Analysis

Profar will get the day off after five straight starts as Carlos Beltran gets another start at DH. With Shin-Soo Choo returning from the DL and positioned in right, Profar could see a few less at-bats, but will likely move all around the field in order to get more time in the lineup.

EDGE Analysis

Profar will be used all over the infield, allowing the DH spot to be rotated among other lineup regulars. A subject of trade rumors, Profar now looks to take on an expanded role with Fielder possibly out for the rest of the season.
