|Jurickson Profar could play the field in late March |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/6/14) Rangers manager Ron Washington told MLB.com on Thursday that infielder Jurickson Profar could play the field in a game "sometime after the middle of the month."
Profar has been limited to DH duties this spring because of shoulder tendinitis. He went 2 for 4 with a grand slam against the Padres on Thursday. He is hitting .333 (6 for 18) with five RBI this spring.

(3/4/14) Rangers infielder Jurickson Profar went 1 for 3 and scored a run while serving as the designated hitter in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Angels.
Though Profar's injured shoulder has kept him off the field has he progresses toward the regular season, he has shined at the plate, going 7 for 14 with two doubles and four RBI in four March games and 6 of 18 with five RBI overall. He'll open the season as the starter at second base if he proves he can field the position this spring.

(3/2/14) Rangers infielder Jurickson Profar has been cleared to start throwing to bases, according to Star-Telegram.
Profar has been dealing with shoulder issues during camp. He's made enough progression to increase his workload. Profar is expected to open the season as the team's starting second baseman. He hit .234/.308/.336 in 286 at-bats last year.
|Jurickson Profar able to play, not in the field |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(2/27/14) Rangers infielder Jurickson Profar has dealt with shoulder tendinitis that has limited his activity in the spring, but he was able to make his spring debut Thursday, in the opener against the Royals.
Profar did not appear in the game on defense, as he replaced Mitch Moreland at designated hitter. He went 1 for 3 with a run scored and one driven in.
Profar only recently began throwing from 75 feet, so he might be limited to offensive appearances throughout the spring. He is slated to start at second base when the season opens, assuming he can get healthy by then.

|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(2/26/14) Rangers second baseman Jurickson Profar has begun a throwing program from 75 feet as he works his way back from a shoulder injury, per ESPN.
That serves as progress for Profar, whose availability for opening day was thrown up for question when it was announced at the start of spring training that he was experiencing shoulder tendinitis.
Profar is expected to start at second, but must prove himself healthy for the regular season.
|Fantasy owners clamoring to see the next big thing got their wish on May 20, when Jurickson Profar, the No. 1 prospect according to most preseason publications, got the call to the majors. He even stuck around the rest of the year after initially looking like just a short-term fill-in for an injured Ian Kinsler. So ... why isn't he a household name yet? Because sometimes the next big thing needs a little more time. Profar disappointed those Fantasy owners who were spoiled by Mike Trout and Bryce Harper in 2012, but as a 20-year-old learning on the fly at a multitude of positions while getting irregular at-bats, he kept his head above water. More than anything, the Rangers wanted him to get his feet wet so they could entrust him with a full-time role in 2014, which he'll have with Kinsler now in Detroit. The Rangers wouldn't have made that trade if they didn't think Profar was all he's cracked up to be, and their faith makes him still plenty attractive in the middle-to-late rounds of mixed-league drafts. The scouts (and to some degree, the minor-league numbers) say Profar eventually be a five-category performer with exceptional plate disciple -- the kind destined to go in the first round someday. For the cost, you'll want to gamble he makes that leap this year.
