We've seen a few phenoms get the call up this year without skipping a beat (at least at first), most recently Manny Machado, could shortstop Jurickson Profar be the next top prospect to make the jump to the big leagues?

Rangers CEO and president Nolan Ryan told Galloway & Company on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM the team has discussed the possibility of calling up their phenom, writes Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas.

"There has been some discussion about that," Ryan said. "Will he be a September call up, will he be prior to that? I couldn't say, but do I think at some point in time he'll be here this year? I would say there's a reasonable chance of that happening."

According to Durrett, Nolan Ryan said he expects Profar to be on the club at some point this season. It could be soon, too, as the team plans on sending down one of their bullpen arms for an infielder.

The 19-year-old Profar is the Rangers No. 1 prospect and without a doubt the top prospect in all of baseball right now. At just 19, he's shown no signs of struggles in Class Double-A Frisco and is batting .283/.362/.463 with 13 home runs in 502 plate appearances this year.
