Napoli's return alters expected roles for some young Rangers

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) Jurickson Profar is pretty much off first base for now with the Texas Rangers. So are young slugger Joey Gallo and Ryan Rua.

The team's reunion with slugger Mike Napoli has changed the outlook this season for those young players. It also will likely mean veteran Shin-Soo Choo spending more time as the designated hitter than in the outfield after being plagued by injuries in 2016.

Profar, who turned 24 on Monday, made starts at five different positions last season - six, when including designated hitter. His 13 starts at first base came after a quick in-season tutorial on the position. He could now be a starting left fielder, or a super utility player again.
