If you missed the Futures Game on Sunday, then you missed a chance to get a glimpse at the next wave of baseball's stars. If you're a Rangers fan and you missed the Futures Game, well, you missed a chance to see the top position prospect in all of baseball, who just happens to be a Ranger -- Jurickson Profar.
Profar homered in his first at bat, off of the U.S. team's starter, Jake Odorizzi. Profar finished the day 2-3, and came out midway through the game, so that the world could get a glimpse at Indians shortstop prospect, Francisco Lindor.
Still, Profar made the most of his opportunity, so much so that he impressed one of Baseball America's writers quite a bit:
Not a surprise, but the most impressive prospect in the Futures Game was Jurickson Profar. Love Dylan Bundy, but I'd rather have Profar.— Ben Badler (@BenBadler) July 9, 2012
Bundy, of course, is the game's top pitching prospect. We can expect to hear a lot of this Profar vs. Bundy debate over the winter, as top 100 prospect lists come out.
For my money, I'll take Profar, despite how impressive Bundy has been.
