Jurickson Profar Hits HR In First Career AB

Jurickson Profar began his Major League career in dramatic fashion on Sunday afternoon, going deep in his first at-bat in the big leagues.

He took a 2-1 fastball from Indians starter Zach McAllister twenty rows deep into the right-field stands at Progressive Field, as the ball was gone as soon as it left the bat (video of the solo shot here).

Profar was considered untouchable at the trade deadline, and he appears to already be making an impact at the big league level. The homer was the first ever hit in Major League Baseball by a player born in 1993.

The HR was the start of a four-run third-inning rally by Texas. The Rangers now lead the Tribe 4-2 as they try to clinch the series in Cleveland.
