Rangers infielder Jurickson Profar hasn’t played in the majors since 2013 due to recurring shoulder issues. In the time since, Rougned Odor has emerged as the Rangers’ answer at second base. Meanwhile, Elvis Andrus with his eight-year, $120 million contract — $88 million of which remains after this season — isn’t going anywhere.

Profar understands that his next opportunity to play regularly in the majors may not come with the Rangers. Via Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Profar said, “There’s a lot of teams, and I’m showing that I’m doing good. Maybe I have to go to another team, and I have no problem with that. I know I’m going to be in the big leagues pretty soon. I’m just getting ready for that. I just want to be in the big leagues and win. If it’s here or anywhere else, I’m ready.”

Profar, 23, has spent the season with Triple-A Round Rock, compiling a .271/.353/.373 triple-slash line with six doubles, a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 20 runs scored in 133 plate appearances.
