Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Thursday that Jurickson Profar is set to begin next season in the minors.
Profar, of course, missed the entire 2014 season due to a right shoulder injury. While the team is encouraged about his progress health-wise, they know he needs to make up for lost time and the plan is to give him regular playing time at Triple-A to start next season. "Probably not," Daniels said of the possibility of Profar making the Opening Day roster. "He needs to play. We’re not going to keep him as our utility guy." Rougned Odor is slated to open next season as the Rangers' second baseman. Dec 12 - 11:41 AM

Mike Puma of the New York Post says the Mets don't consider Jurickson Profar a trade option.

The Mets are looking to upgrade at shortstop this offseason, whether via trade or free agent signing, but it doesn't sound like they're going to be a match with the Rangers. The Mets are not interested in Elvis Andrus because of the money he is owed and Profar missed the entire 2014 season due to a right shoulder injury, so he's too much of a risk at this point.
Dec 9 - 11:17 AM

Jurickson Profar (shoulder) is expected to begin throwing in January.

Profar missed the entire 2014 season due to a right shoulder injury, but an MRI in late-October came back "95 percent clean." He obviously still has some hurdles to cross, which is no guarantee given his setbacks from this year, but the Rangers are optimistic he'll be ready for the 2015 season.
Dec 2 - 3:40 PM

Rangers activated INF Jurickson Profar from the 60-day disabled list.

Profar missed the entire 2014 season due to a right shoulder injury. Rangers general manager Jon Daniel recently said that an MRI on his shoulder came back "95 percent clean," but the Rangers will have to wait until January for him to be cleared for baseball activities.
Nov 3 - 5:37 PM

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Thursday that an MRI on Jurickson Profar (shoulder) was "95 percent clean."

Good news for Profar, who missed the entire 2014 season due to a right shoulder injury. The Rangers shut the 21-year-old infielder down in September after he suffered multiple setbacks, but Daniels hopes that he'll be cleared in January. Still, he remains a big question going into 2015.
Oct 30 - 5:23 PM

Jurickson Profar will receive a platelet-rich plasma injection in his right shoulder on Friday.

Profar has been out all season with a right shoulder injury and it was announced earlier this week that he will be shut down for an additional 2-3 months. The hope is that the new rehab approach will enable him to avoid surgery, but he's a major question mark entering 2015.
Sep 25 - 5:28 PM

Jurickson Profar will be shut down 2-3 months with renewed soreness in his right shoulder.

There's no surgery planned yet for Profar, who missed the entire 2014 season due to a torn muscle in his right shoulder. But he has experienced multiple setbacks in his rehab and will likely remain a question mark heading into spring training in 2015. Profar, still a dynamic young talent, turns 22 years old next February.
Sep 23 - 5:16 PM

Jurickson Profar will meet with Dr. Keith Meister in Texas after experiencing more soreness in his right shoulder.

Profar has missed the entire season with a torn muscle in the shoulder and has had a couple setbacks along the way. He will now not play in the Arizona Fall League as planned and his status going forward looks very cloudy. It's yet another dose of bad news in what has been an awful season for the Rangers.

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

Profar has progressed to throwing from 75 feet as he works his way back from a teres major muscle strain in his right shoulder, but he's not ready to pick up a bat yet. The young infielder will play in the Arizona Fall League, though he might not be ready at the beginning of the schedule. "Our plan is to get him ready for the Fall League," Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said. "He may not be ready Day One, but shortly in to the season. That’s the hope, to get him ready to go."
Sep 7 - 12:08 PM

Jurickson Profar (shoulder) has been cleared to resume a throwing program.

Profar won't return this season after he aggravated the teres major muscle strain in his right shoulder, but it's obviously good news that he'll be able to ramp up his rehab. He will play in the Arizona Fall League and/or winter ball if he can avoid another setback.
Aug 11 - 10:12 PM

Jurickson Profar (shoulder) won't play this season, reports the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Jeff Wilson.

Profar is 10-14 days away from a throwing program, and he could play in the Arizona Fall League or winter ball. Fantasy owners should obviously continue to stash away the former No. 1 overall prospect in keeper formats.
Jul 31 - 5:11 PM

Jurickson Profar (shoulder) doesn't expect to play for the Rangers this season.

Profar was shut down indefinitely in late May after aggravating the teres major muscle strain in his right shoulder. "If I have to lose the year, that's alright," he told reporters Tuesday. "I want to get better." He should be dropped in redraft fantasy leagues but remains a solid stash in keeper formats.
Jun 3 - 4:51 PM

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.
May 22 - 5:48 PM

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.
