Jurickson Profar
27-Year-Old Second Baseman2B
San Diego Padres
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Profar has now been able to stay healthy for the majority of back-to-back seasons, appearing in 285 games over the last two years. The 26-year-old hit .218 after batting .254 in his final year with Texas. A spike in his Pull% (from 39.8% to 49.9%) without a notable dip in his groundball rate led to the decline in batting average, while his BB% (9.3%) and K% (14.5) remained stable. He also battled the yips making throws from second base -- a new development. Padres general manager A.J. Preller, who was the Rangers assistant GM when Profar was a top prospect with Texas, bought low on him in a trade this offseason and he will enter spring training as the favorite to be San Diego's starting second baseman. Profar has hit 20 home runs in back-to-back seasons and is 19-for-20 on stolen-base attempts over that span. His performance in the field will be as important as his hitting if he is to hold the everyday job. Read Past Outlooks
