Jurickson Profar has attained "serviceable" status as a left fielder and also has the confidence of outfield coach Gary Pettis. That's good enough for Rangers manager Ron Washington to stick the rookie back in left field for a second time, but not good enough for him to not be replaced for a better defender late in a close game.
