Wash: Jurickson Profar Is Only Name "Off The Table" In Trade Talks

According to Texas Rangers’ manager Ron Washington, no one is completely off the table during trade discussions as we move closer and closer to the deadline, with one exception: Jurickson Profar.

Currently ranked as the top prospect in baseball by ESPN’s Keith Law, the Rangers have zero intention of parting ways with the 19-year-old any time soon. At least that’s what Washington told Jim Bowden of ESPN recently, via the Dallas Morning News. On Sunday, Bowden Tweeted (all sic, per the usual):

“Ron Washington told us that Profar is going nowhere but everyone else has to be considered in deal even for a rental this is their WS window”

Profar is currently hitting .290 for Double-A Frisco, with 12 home runs, 48 RBIs and 60 runs. He turned some heads during the Futures Game a couple weeks ago, when--as the youngest player in the game for the second consecutive year--he homered in the World squad’s losing effort.

The very next week, he emerged as Law’s top prospect.

Meanwhile Profar’s Frisco teammate, third baseman Mike Olt--who is among Law’s Top 50 Prospects as well--has been an oft-used name in trade rumors involving Texas.
