Profar was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Friday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

The former top prospect found decent success at Triple-A earlier in the year -- .267/.342/.427, 20 RBI in 34 games -- but struggled mightily in the big leagues, going just 7-for-51 at the plate while striking out 14 times. The move to send him back to Triple-A was prompted by the Rangers activating Carlos Gomez and Mike Napoli from the disabled list.

Profar went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

Profar drew the start at third base, marking his second appearance in the lineup since his June 9 promotion. The versatile 24-year-old has failed to record a hit in 11 at-bats since rejoining the big club, dropping his average to .104 over 58 at-bats this season. Barring a dramatic turnaround in the next handful of games, Profar looks bound to return to Triple-A Round Rock when either Carlos Gomez (hamstring) or Mike Napoli (back) return from the disabled list.

Profar is playing third base and batting sixth Friday against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Profar, who was recalled from Triple-A earlier Friday, will start in place of the injured Adrian Beltre (ankle) in his first game back with the big club. The 24-year-old could stick around with Texas if he's able to perform better at the plate during his second stint in the majors this season (.135/.239/.135 across 14 games earlier in the year).

Profar was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Friday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Profar rejoined the Rangers ahead of Friday's series opener against the Nationals. After slashing .135/.289/.135 in 14 games with the big club earlier in the season, Profar turned it around at Round Rock; he left with a .267/.342/.427 triple-slash in 34 games. A corresponding roster move will likely be announced before Friday's game.

Profar is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Round Rock before Friday's series opener against the Nationals, Jon Heyman of FanRagSports.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Adrian Beltre (ankle) is a candidate to possibly land on the DL, so Profar will receive the call-up to offer depth. The former top prospect is slashing .267/.342/.427 with 15 doubles and 20 RBI in 34 games since being sent back to Round Rock at the start of May. Although Profar has put up his solid numbers at Triple-A, he managed just a .135/.289/.135 triple slash in 14 games with the Rangers earlier in the season, so the 24-year-old is probably more of a wait and see situation.

Profar will get playing time at shortstop with Triple-A Round Rock, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although Profar did not get much action at shortstop at the big-league level, it looks like the Rangers want to see if they can salvage some value by giving him a shot to play there with Triple-A Round Rock. If he's is able to look up to snuff at the position defensively, it could give the struggling young infielder some added versatility that could help make up for his deficiencies as a hitter.

Profar was sent down to Triple-A Round Rock on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Things just keep getting worse for Profar, who was relegated to a bench role earlier in the week. He's managed to hit just .135 with three RBI in 46 plate appearances this year, so the Rangers are hoping an opportunity to play every day with the Express helps him iron out the kinks in his swing. His demotion makes room for infielder Pete Kozma, who was claimed off waivers from the Yankees on Sunday.

Profar will no longer be on the strong side of the Rangers' left field platoon, with Ryan Rua instead getting everyday starts there, T.R. Sullivan from MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Profar is hitting just .135/.289/.135 in 46 plate appearances so far. That's hardly a big sample, but apparently it's big enough for manager Jeff Banister. "We have given Profar a long enough look, now we are going to give Rua an opportunity," Banister said. "He is moving over from a platoon and we're giving him bulk at-bats together. We are trying to get a guy and see if he can spark. It wasn't happening on the other end."

Profar is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

With Profar sitting out, the Rangers will start Ryan Rua in left field. Profar's season hasn't gotten off to the best start as he's hitting just .135/.289/.135 after playing in 14 games.

Profar is not in the lineup Thursday against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Profar will head to the bench with left-handed hurler Danny Duffy toeing the rubber for the Royals. Despite his rough start to the season at the plate (4-for-26), the Rangers seem to be content deploying Profar against righties.
