Jurickson Profar slumping badly in Dominican Winter League

It’s foolish to read into statistics that fall over a small sample size, but we’ll pass this note along anyway.

According to Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News, Rangers infield prospect Jurickson Profar was on the Tigres del Licey bench for the fourth time in the past five games on Saturday due to a slump. Profar has just two hits in his last 22 at-bats and is sporting a weak .158/.238/.263 overall batting line.

The 19-year-old native of Curacao just played the longest season of his professional career — 126 games in the minors and nine games in the majors — so fatigue is probably a factor. He’ll have most of December, all of January and a good chunk of February to rest up for the start of the 2013 season.

Profar is considered by many evaluators to be the top position prospect in all of baseball.

    An article for a 22 AB stretch in winter ball?
    Not even a 0 for 22 stretch?

    Yup it’s Decemeber

    Wow, this certainly is a foolish thing to post.

      Silva probably covets Profar in his fantasy baseball league and is trying to sour the Profar owner into trading him.
      It’s brilliant
