Insight: Where's Ian Kinsler when you need him? With Profar out of the picture, the Rangers will probably turn to Adam Rosales (.190, 5 HR, 12 RBI) at second base. Free agent infielder Stephen Drew could also be an option for Texas.

Insight: There are really two schools of thought on this. Keeping Profar (.269, 2 HR, 6 RBI) around as a utility man could benefit the Rangers and it would give Profar some valuable big league experience. On the other hand, Profar would be sitting on the bench a lot where in Triple-A he would be playing everyday. Kinsler should return from his intercostal injury sometime next week.
