The Rangers haven’t yet officially begun training camp and the buzz over Jurickson Profar, the top prospect in baseball, is non-stop.

Will he play in the World Baseball Classic? Will he have a legitimate shot to win a spot on the roster? Will he play the outfield?

And that’s just to name a few.

Start at the end. General manager Jon Daniels acknowledged Tuesday that the club has no plans to play Profar in the outfield. That should put a rest to some confusion over comments Daniels made last week. While emphasizing versatility, Daniels was asked about Profar possibly getting work in the outfield. At the time, Daniels said “why not?” and went on to discuss the need for more versatility.

On Monday, though, manager Ron Washington said he had no intention of working Profar in the outfield. On Tuesday, Daniels essentially said he was talking hyperbole to emphasize the need for versatility.

“He is an infielder and that’s the way we see him,” Daniels said. “Do we plan on working him in right field? No.

Daniels also held out the caveat that he wouldn’t be surprised if at some point in time Profar does get some work in the outfield, but stressed that is not a priority.

The priority first is finding out if he intends to play in the WBC for the Netherlands. Profar has wavered, telling the Rangers two weeks ago that he had no intentions to play, but once word got out about that, he endured some questions in Curacao. Daniels said if Profar does elect to play in the WBC, it will greatly diminish the chance of him making the team out of spring. It would take him out of exhibition action for at least a week and possibly three.
