This guy is a great CI choice in mixed or 1B in AL Only. No Napoli or Young to take ABs. Berkman sucks vs LHPs too, so he won't sap ABs there. Little blurb from the TX beat here:

I think he's a potential sleeper option this year.  Only owned in 4% of Yahoo leagues.  Could see him hanging around 25HRs, 80RBIs.

What happens if Profar rakes at AAA and they decide to move Kinsler to 1st?

I can see the Rangers moving Andrus, who has a very favorable contract (under $5MIL/year) to make room for Profar before they move Kinsler to Second.

Moreland's going to have to fail before Profar's success would have any bearing.  Ian hasn't take many reps at 1b or OF.  Could it happen?  Sure, but the odds are remote.  A lot of things will need to happen for that circumstance to take place this year.  If Moreland produces then he'll have the job no matter what else happens....

Everybody's moving Kinsler to 1st and kicking Mitch to the curb? Ah ah ah, not so fast. 2 HRs in last 3 games. Light tower power.

No love for this guy.

HR off of Lester yesterday to opposite field and he gets 6 righties this week.

He's on the road this week though.  The home/away splits are concerning.  On the plus side, he does visit Houston to close out the week.

His splits vs LHP and RHP are almost identical anyway.

The splits are closer this year but his OPS is over 150 pts higher against righties for his career.

This guy's ownership has to be moving up quickly. Looks at what's he done in the last 7-10 days. Hot.

What do you guys think of him going forward? Relatively stable option at first now that he's getting regular playing time?

yeah so he's just been hot. He's pretty much been at 1st or DH every game for the most part.

Yeah he has. I just hadn't really given him much thought before this past week...

I picked him up 2 and a half weeks ago. He plays in texas, he's got power, and right now his babip is sitting at a comfortable .304. nuff said.
