(9/22/2014) Rangers infielder Jurickson Profar, who has spent all of 2014 rehabbing a torn muscle in the back of his armpit, won't play in the Arizona Fall League as hoped, according to the Dallas Morning News, and will instead visit with sports medicine specialists across the country to try and find a resolution to an injury that should have healed long ago.

"He's worked extremely hard, but he hasn't bounced back," general manager Jon Daniels said. "We need to get him right, so we are gathering additional opinions from a number of the best doctors out there. It's been a frustrating case."

Profar was named the top prospect according to Baseball America prior to 2013. His availability for the start of 2015 is at this point unknown.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Rangers infielder Jurickson Profar's season has come to a predictable end, as the torn muscle in the back of his armpit has failed to heal quickly enough to get him back on the field.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels told the Dallas Morning News Profar will likely aim to play in the Arizona Fall League this October, but is done playing in official games this season.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Rangers seeking depth at second, catcher


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) The Rangers are seeking depth at second base and catcher, according to FoxSports.com.

Both Geovany Soto and Jurickson Profar have gone down in recent days, leaving the club a little thin at some key spots. J.P. Arencibia and Kensuke Tanaka are currently slated to open the year at each spot, though the team does have infielder Rougned Odor in the minors. The Rangers have playoff aspirations this season, so it's not a surprise to see them express some urgency at both positions. 


Jurickson Profar won't need surgery for shoulder injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) Rangers second baseman Jurickson Profar will not require surgery for a slight muscle tear in his right shoulder, per ESPN. He is expected to have 4-6 weeks of limited baseball activities before moving onto hitting and a throwing program.

Assistant general manager Thad Levine said Profar injured his shoulder in the sixth inning of Saturday's spring game against Kansas City. He was making a relay throw to first base as he tried to complete a double play started by third baseman Adrian Beltre.

"He felt some pain but was able play the rest of innings he was supposed to play," Levine said. "The MRI showed a tear that was adjacent to and different from the muscle he sustained a previous injury to.

"This is our every day second baseman. Someone we had every expectation was going to take a meaningful step forward in his career and be a big part of our 2014 campaign. He should be a weapon for us in the second half of the season. Maybe a little bit earlier."
