While New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter tries to finish his Hall of Fame career in pinstripes the way he started it, with a World Series title, and the Detroit Tigers aim to unseat the defending champion Boston Red Sox, the West looks to be one of baseball’s top divisions again in 2014.
Jurickson Profar is 21-years-old going into the 2014 season. And the Rangers are expecting a lot.
One of the most prolific two-sport athletes of all-time thinks Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson should keep his talents on the football field, and not expand to the baseball diamond.

The Texas Rangers expect Seattle’s Super Bowl-winning quarterback to participate in a team workout and then be in uniform for a Cactus League game when Wilson visits camp Monday.
