"If Wash (manager Ron Washington) can find ways to mix him in and, both for his sake, but maybe more importantly to rest other guys -- both guys that are banged up a little bit and also guys that are slumping a little bit -- then I think it makes sense to keep him," Daniels said. "If we're not going to use him that way, then we'll send him down."

Daniels also brought up the possibility of a position change.

"I don't know if we'd make him a full-time outfielder, but there are plenty of guys that break in at different positions to get their bats in the lineup," Daniels said. "That's something that's been talked about and something we may do."

What do you think the Rangers should do with Profar?
