The first short season leagues begin play today, and the Rangers Advanced SS Northwest League club opens against Tri-City. Check out Robbie’s Spokane roster preview from Monday.â†µ
All eyes – at least all of those with Rangers interest – will be on 17 year-old shortstop Jurickson Profar.

Jason Parks posted his well timed scouting report on Profar today over on BBTiA.
