Not So Shocking: Jurickson Profar 'Most Impressive' At Futures Game

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.
