Profar may not be up at the start of the year, at mid-year, maybe not at all, so to give up a risky but good when healthy 3B in Sandoval seems high. I'm also not as high on Profar as others, I think he may end up being a better real player than fantasy player.
Also, the fact he has to be a major leaguer and not a minor leaguer means you can't stash him, so he wastes a bench spot until he comes up for you.
Profar showed the selectivity of a player six or seven years his senior, outstanding instincts in the field and more power than anticipated in his full-season debut. Profar is a plus-makeup, plus-feel, plus-instincts guy who breaks the mold of that type of player by also having tremendous tools.
Profar is the best prospect in the minors this year thanks to an incredible combination of tools, skills, and baseball instincts rarely found in players who play in the middle of the field. His feel for the game is unusual for a player of any age. He has an outstanding approach at the plate that allowed him to make the two-level jump from low Class A to Double-A without losing much production, and he showed more power this year than I expected. A good defensive shortstop who posts OBPs around .400 and hits 15-20 homers a year is a player around whom you can build your roster, and who should help keep the Rangers in contention for the next decade.
