Opportunity knocks in many different ways and injuries are a common one in sports. In this segment of the fantasy baseball prospect report, rookie hitters who got their call up to replace a hobbled incumbent are discussed.
Jurickson Profar, Tex 2B/SS – It took an injury to Ian Kinsler for the 20-year-old Profar to get called up. He is considered one of, if not the best prospect in baseball and will start at second base against Oakland on Monday. He was hitting a modest .278 with four long balls and 19 runs batted in 37 games in Triple-A this season, but is most known for his slick fielding.
