Separate question: How do you rate these four for impact the next two months?

Olt
Straily
Jackson
Vitters


For this year:

Straily
Vitters
Jackson

Long Term:

It would probably take a trade, injury, or position change for Andrus or Kinsler for that to happen.

Yeah, doesn't look like there is any room for him. I think they just signed Kinsler and Andrus to new deals. Makes no sense to me why they did that. I am pretty sure Tex said that Profar is untouchable. So no room and they won't trade him. :-?

Have to feel it's very realistic Andrus gets moved either this offseason or sometime next year if Profar continues to knock on MLB's door. I guess they could move someone to the outfield but it makes very little sense considering Andrus is a gold glover at SS.

They'd be nuts to trade Andrus, definitely have to move Kinsler to left and put Profar at second base or slide Andrus over.

I like Profar to second and Kinsler to DH and get his bat in there for 162 games and move him to the outfield during interleague

T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the Rangers are considering calling up prospect shortstop Jurickson Profar.

Does it matter at this point in the season? Unless he goes all Trout (explative) on MLB pitching, he's not going to help you out much.
