In the rubber match of their three-game series with the Cleveland Indians, the Texas Rangers will start September call-up Jurickson Profar at second base. All-Star Ian Kinsler, who was in the original lineup and batting leadoff, was a late scratch. Profar will bat ninth, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Profar, 19, is one of the best prospects in baseball. He batted .281 with a .368 on-base percentage at AA Frisco this season with 14 home runs and 16 stolen bases in 480 at-bats. Kinsler played nine innings Saturday and was slated to be in the lineup until about a half-hour before the game, so it's doubtful his injury is too serious, but it's worth keeping an eye on into next week. Here are the full lineups for Sunday's game:
