KANSAS CITY -- The Rangers signed Juremi Profar, the younger brother of Texas infielder Jurickson Profar. The Curacao native is 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds, making him taller and bigger than his now famous brother. At 16, Juremi is three years younger.

Juremi Profar is also not considered as high of a prospect as his brother. But not many are. Juremi plays third base with a strong arm and some power potential with the bat.

"He's a really good hitter and a fielder, too," Jurickson said. "It would be fun to play with him. My first baseball game, I played with him. I was 6 and he was 3. We won the game. We didn't lose any games. We were 16-0."

Juremi Profar will likely begin his career for the Rangers next year in the Dominican Summer League.
