Jurickson Profar underwent surgery Monday to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder.

The rehab for such a procedure takes at least nine months, so Profar can be ruled out for a second consecutive season. The 22-year-old infielder was considered the top prospect in baseball not long ago, but it's pretty difficult to make a career projection on him now. Profar just can't catch a break.

Jurickson Profar's shoulder surgery will be to repair a torn labrum.

Profar's labrum issues date back to 2010 and could be the cause of the instability in the shoulder. Dr. Keith Meister will check on other issues during the surgery, so we won't have a clear timetable until after. However, he's obviously at risk for missing his second straight season.

Jurickson Profar is scheduled to undergo surgery Monday on his right shoulder.

Profar attempted to rehab a teres major muscle strain last season rather than fix it with a procedure, and it seems the experiment has now backfired. An MRI taken Tuesday on the young infielder's right shoulder show increased strain on the subscapularis muscle. It's not clear what his timetable looks like now, though there's talk of him missing yet another full year. Profar, once considered among the top prospects in baseball, should not be selected in standard fantasy drafts this spring.

Jurickson Profar (shoulder) is still playing catch and taking dry swings.

Profar missed all of last season with a torn muscle in his shoulder, but recent MRI have showed significant healing. He'll continue to go for MRIs every three weeks and will likely be eased into spring training. "He's on schedule," said Rangers general manager Jon Daniels. "He's continued to progress both in his throwing program and in his rehab, and in the weight room and in his doctor's visits. It's all been kind of green lights so far." Profar figures to begin the season in the minors, but he's obviously someone to keep an eye on.

An MRI taken this week on Jurickson Profar's right shoulder showed significant healing.

Profar will stretch his throwing out to 75 feet next week and he has also been cleared to introduce dry swings into his workout plan. The 21-year-old infielder should be close to 100 percent for the beginning of the 2015 season, but he's probably going to be ticketed for Triple-A after sitting out all of 2014.
Jan 29 - 3:33 PM

Jurickson Profar (shoulder) will extend his throwing to 60 feet on Monday.

Profar played catch Wednesday from a distance of 45 feet and will do the same on Thursday. He's scheduled to undergo a follow-up MRI next week after this stretch of light workouts. The Rangers are hoping that the 21-year-old infielder will be healthy for the start of the 2015 season, though he's likely ticketed for Triple-A after appearing in zero games in 2014.
Jan 22 - 1:19 PM

Jurickson Profar (shoulder) will resume a throwing program on Wednesday.

It will be the first time he's thrown since he suffered another setback with his right shoulder back in late September. An MRI earlier this month showed further healing of Profar's torn teres major muscle, clearing the way for him to test things out again. Although the Rangers are optimistic that he'll make a full recovery, his status is still very much up in the air until we see how his shoulder responds to the renewed activity. Profar is slated to begin the 2015 season at Triple-A.
Jan 19 - 7:53 PM

Jurickson Profar (shoulder) has been cleared to begin a throwing program the week of January 19.

An MRI earlier this week showed further healing of the torn teres major muscle in Profar's right shoulder. He'll be brought along slowly in spring training and is expected to begin the season in the minors, but the Rangers are optimistic Profar will make a full recovery after missing all of last season. Profar will turn 22 next month.
Jan 9 - 4:32 PM

An MRI on Jurickson Profar's right shoulder Monday showed further healing of the torn teres major muscle, per Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News.

Last month, Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said MRIs showed the shoulder was "95 percent" healed, so Monday's MRI backs that up. Despite the progress, Profar won't start a significant throwing program until spring training at the earliest. Daniels has already hinted that Profar will start the season in the minors, but assuming he continues to come along the 21-year-old should be back with the Rangers sometime in 2015.
Jan 7 - 10:23 PM

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.

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.
Tue, Dec 9, 2014 11:17:00 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.

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.

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.
