With the Round Rock Express, he had a .287 average with seven home runs and 45 runs batted in 87 games that year, while only playing 22 games in the majors.
In 2018, at the age of 25, he had a very successful season. It’s hard to imagine a player hitting better than.254 (82 runs, 77 RBIs) in as many games.
During that season, he played 68 games at shortstop, 51 games at third base, 24 games at first base, and 10 games at second base as a super-utility player.
As of December 21st, he was transferred in a three-team deal that included the Tampa Bay Rays to Oakland Athletics. As part of the deal, the Rangers gave up minor league pitcher Rollie Lacy in exchange for Profar.
Marcus Semien and Jurickson formed a double-play combination at second base for the Oakland A’s in 2019, although Jurickson had a rocky start.
He had a .165 batting average with two home runs and 13 RBIs for the month of April.
All five of his ribbies came in the same game, a 13-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on April 9th, when he also hit his first home runs while going 4-for-5.
It wasn’t until May 7th, though, when his two-run homer against the Cincinnati Reds helped Oakland to a 2-0 victory over Mike Fiers, who recorded his first no-hitter of the season.
In his first four games of the month, he was 6-for-16. In 139 games, he hit.218 with 20 homers and 67 RBIs that season. In the Wild Card Game, which the A’s lost to the Rays, he went 2 for 4 with a run scored.
For Austin Allen and future considerations, he was traded to the San Diego Padres on December 2nd.
