Just days after calling up stud shortstop prospect Jurickson Profar for the stretch run the Rangers have signed his little brother, 16-year-old third baseman Juremi Profar.

Jurickson Profar signed with the Rangers out of Curacao for $1.55 million in 2009 and Ben Badler of Baseball America notes that Juremi Profar isn’t as highly touted, but adds that “like his older brother, Juremi was also a standout at the Little League World Series” and “has the size, hands and arm strength to play third base, while showing flashes of power in games from the right side.”

Badler’s article also includes video of Juremi Profar homering, in case Rangers fans want to start dreaming about a two-Profar infield in, say, 2017.

    Two brothers with a little Mmm-bop in their bats. Not too shabby.

    Would make more sense for a picture of the Hanson brothers to appear on Pro Hockey Talk.

      Put them on a team with TIm Linecum and they would look like a skateboard team.

    Is the younger Profar brother as pretty as the younger Hanson sister?

    What’s that you say?

    How embarassing!
