Jurickson Profar News
San Diego Padres utilityman Jurickson Profar drew a walk and crushed a two-run home run in two at-bats Tuesday against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Entering to play first base as part of a double switch, Profar's long ball was one of three hits for the Friars in the feeble 5-2 loss. Along with a recent IL stint, the 28-year-old has seen his playing time dwindle as he sports a modest .243/.348/.338 slash with three homers, 10 steals and 64 runs-plus-RBI in 321 plate appearances. Despite his elite plate discipline, Profar's weak batted-ball outcomes render him a desperation play in only the deepest best ball and OBP formats.
San Diego Padres utility player Jurickson Profar (COVID-19) was activated from the COVID-19 injured list on Friday, the team announced on Twitter. Profar has been out for two weeks on the IL, and in a rehab game with Triple-A El Paso on Sunday, he went 1-for-3 with two walks. Over 99 games this season, Profar is slashing .242/.344/.327 with two home runs, 10 steals, 24 RBI and 37 runs scored. He really only has value in deep formats, and can be left on the waiver wire in the majority of leagues.
San Diego Padres infielder Jurickson Profar went 1-for-3 with two walks during Sunday's rehab game with Triple-A El Paso. He was placed on the injured list 10 days ago due to COVID-19. However, it sounds like Profar is already getting back into the groove and should return within the next few days. Profar was in a hot stretch before getting sidelined, but hasn't offered much upside in fantasy formats all season long. He could possibly be a NL-only option, but probably won't help more than that.
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.
