Jurickson Profar News
The San Diego Padres signed free-agent outfielder Jurickson Profar to a minor-league deal on Friday. He's expected to report to Triple-A El Paso, but he's certainly a candidate to be called up now that rosters are expanding to 28 players on Friday. Profar became a free agent when he was released by the Colorado Rockies on Sunday after hitting .236/.316/.364 with eight home runs in 111 games after signing a $7.75 million deal in 2023. He initially opted out of a deal with the Padres that included a $7.75 million player option for 2023 and a $10 million mutual option for 2024. The switch-hitter batted .244/.333/.375 with 26 homers in 345 games with the Padres from 2020 to 2021.
Colorado Rockies outfielder Jurickson Profar (knee) is back in the starting lineup on Wednesday against the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks and right-hander Slade Cecconi, playing left field and batting in the two-hole. Profar injured his left knee on Sunday against the Los Angeles Dodgers and missed the first two games of the series against Arizona as a result. The switch-hitting 30-year-old has provided very modest numbers for fantasy managers in deeper leagues in 2023 in his first year at hitter-friendly Coors Field. He's hit .241/.322/.369 with only eight home runs, 39 RBI and 49 runs scored in 398 at-bats. He's been much better at home, though, going 55-for-193 (.285) with three of his eight homers and 21 RBI in 222 trips to the plate.
Colorado Rockies outfielder Jurickson Profar (knee) was forced to exit early during Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The 30-year-old suffered a left knee injury while tracking a fly ball onto the warning track. He was likely taken out of the game as a precaution, but is expected to undergo further testing. The hope is that it's only a minor issue, but fantasy managers should get a backup plan ready in case Profar misses significant time.
San Diego Padres utility player Jurickson Profar returns to sunny Southern California after signing a three-year deal this offseason. In his first year with San Diego Profar put up one of the best performances of his career, including career bests in batting average (.278), on-base percentage (.343), and strikeout rate (13.9%). And with seven home runs over 56 games, Profar was on pace for 21 homers over a full season, which would have been his third consecutive 20-homer campaign. But amidst all that, there were some signs of concern for Profar, as his launch angle (11.0 degrees), barrel rate (3.2%), hard-hit rate (27.7%) and contact rate (81.1%) were all down from 2019, and his 8.8 percent swinging strike rate was his highest since 2012. And if all of that wasn't enough, the Padres are suggesting that they plan to use Profar primarily off the bench as a utility infielder/outfielder. Until a starting role opens up for Profar (ADP 239) he should be considered an above-average fantasy bench player to pop into the lineup whenever he gets a start.
