uh I wouldnt get too excited yet.
what exactly makes you think he is SURE to get SS elg?
Itd be great if he played everyday but seems very unlikely. "finding time" for him could be 2 or 3 games a week for all we know.

For 2012 he's basically Zack Cozart or Brandon Crawford, except without the guaranteed playing time and without SS eligibility yet. Maybe Howie Kendrick is a better comp, but again, without the playing time. Meh.
Rangers manager Ron Washington said Jurickson Profar plan is to make him a functional left fielder. Seven to 10 days is a guess on timeline.
To date, Profar has played 2B, SS and 3B; not a single game in the outfield. Washington and the Rangers are trying to do anything they can to keep this young man in the majors and playing the outfield seems like their last hope. Assuming all goes well, Profar's fantasy value should keep climbing.

On the same note, do you guys think Profar with SS eligibility is a better option than Jimmy Rollins?
