Report: Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar expects to miss rest of year
Rangers second baseman Jurickson Profar doesn't expect to play again this season, according to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star Telegram.
Less than two weeks ago, the 21-year-old former top prospect was ruled out another 8-12 weeks after tweaking his right shoulder, which he was already rehabbing after tearing a muscle in spring training. He reportedly reinjured it while rolling over in bed and was diagnosed with a Grade 2 strain.
Profar, part of a rare club after hitting a home run in his first major league at-bat, hit .234 with six home runs and 26 RBI and recorded a .644 OPS in 286 at-bats in the majors last season.
The Rangers are currently 29-28 and sit in fourth place in the AL West, ahead of the Houston Astros.
