Buster Olney tweeted the following a few minutes ago:

Profar is currently hitting .278-.370-.438 with 4 HRs, 7 doubles, 2 triples, 27 runs, 19 RBI and 6 stolen bases in 166 plate appearances this season, playing for AAA Round Rock. While he did get off to a slow start in AAA, he has maintained his excellent plate discipline, with a K% of 14.5% and a 12.7% walk rate. He is actually walking more than he did in AA last season, which is a positive sign,

Grab him in all leagues if he is unowned. He was picked up minutes after the news was released in the Razzball Experts League, but surprisingly, it was not Grey Albright who grabbed him. Paul Singman from Baseball Prospectus was the owner who won the race to his rights.
