With a height of 183cm and a weight of about 84 kilograms Profar plays on third base. The sixteen year old was also noticed, like his brother, at the Little League World Series. He was a shortstop and pitcher for Curacao in Williamsport in 2008. Here he reached the semifinals, where he hit a homerun and eliminated nine players making it 4 2/3 innings in a 11-4 loss yielded to Japan.

In one of the previous games, when playing against Italy, Profar hit two homeruns and thus helped his team to the semifinals.

The sixteen year old will probably start his career in the Dominican Summer League.
