Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Monday that Profar is unlikely to be recalled from Triple-A Round Rock in the final month of the season, Jaylon Thompson of MLB.com reports. "We are pretty well committed to the guys that we have right now that have been here all year long or come up and been challenged with roles and done well," Daniels said. "If another injury or something else happens, we feel we got some guys here that will get those opportunities next."

EDGE Analysis

Daniels reiterated that Profar is still viewed as a part of the team's long-term core, but didn't want to bring the infielder or fellow Triple-A standouts Willie Calhoun and Ronald Guzman up to the big leagues without the promise of regular at-bats. Once viewed as one of the top prospects in all of baseball, Profar's development has been stunted by injuries, but he was generally able to stay healthy in 2017 and enjoyed a strong season at Round Rock, slashing .287/.383/.428 across 383 plate appearances.

Profar is out of the lineup at Triple-A Round Rock on Monday after expressing frustration at a lack of a trade before the deadline, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Profar is hitting .300/.386/.440 for Triple-A Round Rock and is convinced he belongs in the majors somewhere, whether in Texas or not. He has a point, but it's hard to imagine the Rangers will let Profar go over waivers, so the former top prospect will likely have to wait until the offseason to get his wish.

Profar was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

He'll head back to the minors with Elvis Andrus coming off the paternity list. Profar appeared in two games during his brief call-up with the team, going 3-for-7 with two doubles and two RBI. Considering his .303/.376/.444 slash line at Triple-A, Profar is certainly making a case to rejoin the big league club in the second half of the season.

Profar went 2-for-3 with two doubles, a run scored and two RBI in Wednesday's 8-2 win over the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Getting the start at shortstop and hitting seventh, Profar carried forward the momentum that had seen him put together a .373/.440/.478 slash line in 16 games at Triple-A prior to his recall. While it seems like he's been around forever, the one-time top prospect in the Rangers system is still only 24 and may yet carve out a solid big-league career for himself. Given his current form at the plate, when Elvis Andrus returns from the paternity list don't be surprised if Profar sticks around as a utility player.

Profar was called up by the Rangers on Wednesday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Profar comes back up while Elvis Andrus lands on the paternity list prior to Wednesday's series finale against Boston. For the game against the Red Sox, Profar gets the start at short while batting seventh in the order. If Andrus winds up missing another game or two, Profar could be in line to get a couple more starts.

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.
