Jurickson Profar is a scout’s dream—a switch-hitting athletic shortstop with speed and pop—a legit 5-tooler with freakish potential. What the Rangers will do with him, who knows. They’ve been flirting with him since last year but even with Kinsler out he isn’t getting full-time work. Could he be traded? Maybe, but speculating about Profar’s future team isn’t what we’re here for. To the gear we go.
I spoke with Jeff McKee, Trinity’s CEO the other day and asked him about Profar’s bat. Even HE couldn’t tell me what model it was, though he speculated it might be borrowed from Adrian Beltre. We don’t want to just throw out a model when we really don’t know, so we will keep an eye on this and if anyone else has some info/photos let us know.
Under Armour Yard VI in White/Red and White/Blue
Profar has been wearing the Under Armour Yard VI since he’s been called up, contrary to the feature photo of him going commando (no gloves).
Under Armour Yard III Cleats in Black/White/Red
Same model as Jose Reyes, exclusive colorway like Reyes as well. Like we found for Reyes, the best way to get some colors with these cleats is through eBay at the link above.
ProHitter in Blue
You’ll notice in both photos above that Profar wears the ProHitter thumb aid, a tiny accessory worn by a lot of big leaguers (Cano, Longoria, Hamilton, Zimmerman). With hitters like that using it, it must work.
