Jurickson Profar has been shut down after aggravating the teres major muscle in his right shoulder.

The hits just keep on coming for the Rangers. Profar, who recently started playing in extended spring training games, believes he tweaked the shoulder rolling over in bed. He's now dealing with a Grade 2 and will likely miss 8-12 more weeks. Even if all goes well, he won't contribute until very late in the season.

Jurickson Profar (shoulder) will serve as the designated hitter in an extended spring training game Monday.

It will be his first game action since going down with a torn right shoulder muscle in March. Profar has been doing some throwing, but it's unclear when the Rangers will allow him to play defense. The young infielder is shooting to rejoin the big club in early June.
May 9 - 4:53 PM

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels expects Jurickson Profar (shoulder) to head to Arizona next week to continue his rehab.

Profar took batting practice on the field for the first time earlier this week and should begin playing in extended spring training games once he gets to Arizona. Barring any setbacks, it looks like a return in the early part of June is possible.
May 8 - 5:04 PM

Jurickson Profar (shoulder) will take batting practice on the field Tuesday.

It's the first time he's done so since going down with a torn right shoulder muscle in March. The young infielder will then throw from 60 feet Wednesday, which is also a first since his injury. Profar is looking at an early June return as long as he can avoid a setback.
May 6 - 7:01 PM

Jurickson Profar (shoulder) has been cleared to swing a bat.

He'll also begin a throwing program next week. Profar was given clearance for both activities after an MRI Tuesday came back clean. He still has a long ways to go, but it's looking like he has a shot to return in early June as the Rangers had hoped.

Jurickson Profar (shoulder) could be cleared to swing a bat if an MRI Tuesday comes back clean.

Working his way back from a torn right shoulder muscle, Profar has done some fielding drills but has yet to pick up the stick. The Rangers are hoping to get the stud second baseman back in early June, though that's not a firm timetable.
Apr 27 - 2:16 PM

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said in an interview Sunday that the first week of June is a realistic return date for Jurickson Profar (shoulder).

It would be on the short end of the projected 10-12 week timetable that was given when it was announced that Profar had a torn right shoulder muscle. Daniels did note that they would certainly make sure the infielder is 100 percent before he's activated, so it's just a rough timeline.
Apr 20 - 11:05 AM

Rangers transferred INF Jurickson Profar to the 60-day disabled list.

This was done merely as a procedural move to open a spot on the 40-man roster for the recently acquired Hector Noesi. Profar isn't expected to return to the Rangers lineup until late June.
Apr 12 - 2:08 PM

Jurickson Profar (shoulder) participated in fielding drills at second base on Saturday afternoon.

Profar was placed on the disabled list on March 30 with a torn muscle in his right shoulder and is not expected to return for another 10-plus weeks. "I’m trying to work and wait," the dynamic young infield prospect told reporters on Saturday. "I want to be healthy, so I’m patient. I’m working hard at the things I can do."
Apr 5 - 7:13 PM

Rangers placed 2B Jurickson Profar on the 15-day disabled list with a torn right shoulder muscle.

The diagnosis was made a week ago, at which time Profar was given a 10-12 week timetable to return. The injury will not require surgery, but he shouldn't be counted on to contribute during the first half.
Mar 30 - 3:28 PM

Jurickson Profar has been diagnosed with a torn right shoulder muscle and will be sidelined for the next 10-12 weeks.

The dynamic young infielder dealt with tendinitis in the shoulder in the early part of spring training, and felt pain after trying to turn a double play in the sixth inning of Sunday's Cactus League contest. The good news is that he won't need surgery, but he can't be counted on to contribute during the first half. It's unclear what the Rangers will do to fill the void at second base, but top prospect Rougned Odor could merit consideration.

Jurickson Profar (shoulder) was scratched from the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

Profar will receive an MRI on Sunday afternoon, and more will be known about his prognosis at that time. Tendinitis in his throwing shoulder has bewitched Profar throughout camp, so it will be interesting to see what the doctor rules.

Jurickson Profar was scratched from the Rangers' lineup Thursday after undergoing additional dental work.

Profar had his wisdom teeth removed last week and apparently needed some sort of cleanup procedure on Wednesday. He should be fine for the start of the season.

Jurickson Profar (wisdom teeth) will start at second base Monday night for the first time this spring.

Profar was limited to DH duty after some shoulder soreness early in camp and recently had his wisdom teeth removed, but he's finally back to 100 percent. The 21-year-old had mixed results in sporadic playing time last year, but he could thrive with an everyday role this season.
