Jurickson Profar played 17 games at second and 11 games at short last season. Does he qualify at MI for 2017?

No, the only position he played more 20 games at, was 3B, therefore he only qualifies at 3B.

This is now addressed explicitly in the rules in a footnote in Section 3 - League and Team Composition (after I received this perfectly reasonable question annually in one forum or another):

...

* To qualify at MI, a player must meet minimum appearance requirements at EITHER 2B or SS – combined appearances at these positions are NOT used to determine MI eligibility. To qualify at CI, a player must meet minimum appearance requirements at EITHER 1B or 3B – combined appearances at these positions are NOT used to determine CI eligibility
