Sunday was a big day for Jurickson Profar and his fantasy owners. With news that Ian Kinsler was headed to the disabled list with an intercostal strain, the Rangers decided it was finally time to bring up their prized prospect who hit .326 (28-for-86) over his last 21 games at Triple-A Round Rock and enjoyed his first career two-homer game Saturday night. He was in uniform, but he did not play. It is not yet known how long Kinsler will be out for, but it would seem that this is an injury that probably won’t require more than the 15 day minimum. So the big questions are: for how long will Profar be up and what is his current fantasy value? Well, my fantasy heart goes out to the dedicated and hopeful who have been stashing the potential rookie of the year, because I’d have to say not long and not much if we’re talking about right now.
We have the usual Thursday abbreviated schedule again today, and there also seems to be a lack of great performances as well. One of my "favorite" all time fantasy players needs a day off, a former caveman comes through in a big way, and we realize that it is just Tex being Tex. I realize that I might have a new man crush in Kansas City, while another one takes it on the chin in the Bronx. Another Phillies pitcher rolls through a lineup, and a Marlins hurler drives me nuts. It is all in a day's work here at Fantasy Alarm, and remember if you started Joe Mauer tonight, that you would have known to get him out of your lineup if you had signed up for Fantasy Alarm.
