Juremi Profar joins Red Sox

Infielder Juremi Profar from Curaçao has signed a one-year] minor league deal with the Boston Red Sox. After seven years with the Texas Rangers organization, the younger brother of Jurickson opted for free agency on November 4, 2019.

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor Juremi profarBefore last season, the Rangers clearly didn’t know where to put Juremi as they let him play at all infield positions. Only last season, he played the entire year at third base.

At various stages in the minor leagues, Juremi’s best year was in 2016 when he hit .300 with the now-defunct High Desert Mavericks of the California League (A-advanced). In other seasons his batting average didn’t top .281 (DSL). But in 2019, Juremi batted .290 in ninety games with the Frisco RoughRiders (AA, Texas League), a reason for the Rangers to promote him to AAA Nashville. But after twenty-three games at AAA level, his batting average got stuck at .163 and he was sent down to Frisco again.

Juremi broke into professional baseball in 2013 when he started his professional career in the Dominican Summer League. In 2014, he played most games in the Northwest League (A-short season) but he had a cup of coffee with the Round Rock Express (AAA, Pacific Coast League) as he appeared in two games and had two hits in six at-bats.

Where Juremi will start the season in the Red Sox organization remains a question. Likely it will be the AA Portland Mavericks (Eastern League).
