The hits kept on coming for the Rangers when they later announced that Jurickson Profar suffered a setback in his rehab from a shoulder injury and will miss another 8-to-12 weeks. This isn't nearly as serious an issue for fantasy owners. You budgeted for having Profar on the DL, and have already had a second baseman in his place all year.
