Jurickson Profar News
San Diego Padres infielder/outfielder Jurickson Profar finished 2-for-3 with two RBI, a run scored and a steal Tuesday against the Milwaukee Brewers. Profar beat the shift with an RBI knock in the third inning against starter Corbin Burnes and later iced the game with a run-scoring double to extend the eventual 7-1 victory. One of six Friars to swipe a bag on the evening, Profar is up to eight thefts on the season. Despite his on-base prowess and invaluable real-life role, the 28-year-old remains a fairly uninteresting fantasy option with a .255/.350/.328 slash with just one home run and 39 runs-plus-RBI in 163 plate appearances. He's merely a lottery ticket for steals for managers willing to sacrifice other categories at the middle infield position.
San Diego Padres utility players Jurickson Profar and Jorge Mateo (COVID-19 protocols) are back with the team on Monday night, according to AJ Cassavell of MLB.com. Profar and Mateo were placed on the COVID injured list last week due to contact tracing protocols, landing on the list at the same time as Fernando Tatis Jr. Mateo is slashing .250/.325/.417 over 22 games this season, while Profar is slashing .234/.333/.308 over 34 games. With one home run and five steals this season, Profar remains the more fantasy relevant option of the two.
The San Diego Padres placed shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. and utilitymen Jurickson Profar and Jorge Mateo on the IL Tuesday due to health and safety protocols. The assumption is the move COVID-related, so fantasy managers should keep their fingers crossed this is precautionary. The timing is unfortunate as the team heads into Coors Field for a three-game set. The most fantasy relevant of the bunch, Tatis has registered an .867 OPS with nine homers and seven steals in 108 plate appearances this season and should be taken out of lineups. While the Friars haven't announced corresponding moves, infielder Ha-Seong Kim will certainly be one of the beneficiaries to start while Tatis and Profar are out.
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.
