The ‘Brother-in-Law’ is back.
The San Diego Padres announced today that they have signed Jurickson Profar to a major league contract from Triple-A El Paso prior to the team’s upcoming game against the Houston Astros.
Proppa, who signed a minor league contract with the Padres on Sept. 1, went 5-for-14 with two home runs and eight RBIs in four games for El Paso and will get another chance in the big leagues.
In 345 games with the Padres over the previous three years, Proppa batted .244 with a .333 on-base percentage and .375 slugging percentage. In 2022, he established himself as the starting left fielder and led the team to the Championship Series.
He was Kim’s closest teammate. They were more than teammates. Profar called Kim “little brother” and they were like stepbrothers.카지노
But the professional world is a cold place. After a successful 2022 season, Profa opted out and said goodbye.
It turned out to be a bad choice. He later agreed to a one-year, $7.75 million deal with the Colorado Rockies, but was released after batting just .236 with a .316 on-base percentage, .364 slugging percentage, eight home runs, and 39 RBIs in 111 games.
Now back in free agency, Profar is looking for a second chance with a familiar team.
For now, he’ll be waiting on the bench. The Dodgers announced the following lineup for the game: Ha-Sung Kim (third base), Fernando Tatis Jr. (right field), Juan Soto (left field), Manny Machado (designated hitter), Zander Bogaerts (shortstop), Luis Camposano (catcher), Matt Carpenter (first base), Matthew Barten (second base), and Trent Grisham (center field).
Meanwhile, San Diego recalled infielder Egui Rosario from El Paso, placed catcher Gary Sanchez on the disabled list with a fractured wrist, and transferred right-hander Alec Jacob to the 60-day disabled list.
