09:37 AM ET 06.16 | Resistance will be futile, Rangers manager Ron Washington said on Saturday. When he wants to play rookie infielder Jurickson Profar, the veteran getting a break cannot talk his way into the lineup. "When I decide it's time for him to play, it's going to be time for him to play," Washington said. "When I tell (veterans) they've got a day off, he's going to play. We've got to find out how we're going to do it." In the past, Washington has been willing to tear up a lineup and insert a veteran who previously was not playing. Third baseman Adrian Beltre has been the most insistent about playing as often as possible. Profar will be used at second, shortstop and third base while also learning the corner-outfield spots. Profar began working on outfield fundamentals with coach Gary Pettis during batting practice. Profar said he has no outfield experience. "It doesn't matter," Profar said of shuttling among positions. "It's baseball. That's what I want to do: play baseball." Profar will start on Sunday, Washington said. He has not settled on a position.
