Rangers GM Jon Daniels said that Jurickson Profar "doesn't have any concerns about the shoulder."
Daniels was interviewed on the Ben and Skin Show on KRLD-FM 105.3. The Rangers GM touched on Jurickson Profar's rehab, as the 22-year-old shortstop was sidelined in February due to a torn labrum in his shoulder. Profar underwent surgery, but did not play in 2015. "All signs are positive right now," said Daniels. "His throwing program's great, he's absolutely killing it with the bat in the Fall League." Daniels went on to add that while the Rangers are being understandably cautious, Profar "feels 100%." Assuming no setbacks this offseason, the former No. 1 prospect should be ready for spring training in 2016. Nov 20 - 8:49 AM

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that teams have inquired with the Rangers about the availability of Jurickson Profar.

The Yankees are among them, but Sherman writes that the Rangers aren't keen on selling low and likely want to get him back on the field before exploring a possible trade. The 22-year-old has missed much of the past two seasons due to shoulder issues, but there have been positive reports on him in the Arizona Fall League. He's serving strictly as a DH at the moment and is being eased into a throwing program, but the Rangers expect him to be at full health for spring training.

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

Profar underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder back in February and did not play during the 2015 campaign. He's being activated from the 60-day disabled list to allow him to participate in the Arizona Fall League this off-season. The 22-year-old infielder is slated to serve as the DH for the Surprise Saguaros on Thursday.

Jurickson Profar (shoulder) has been pulled off his minor league rehab assignment.

Profar was making steady progress from February surgery to repair a torn labrum, but the Rangers have determined that he's not going to be able to appear in a major league game over the final three weeks so they're simply going to shut down the 22-year-old middle infield prospect. He'll gear up for 2016.
Sep 8 - 6:01 PM

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Monday that Jurickson Profar (shoulder) could be activated from the disabled list sometime next month.

Well, that's a nice surprise. Profar began a rehab assignment last week as he works his way back from labrum surgery and evidently might be an option for the Rangers in September. His role with the big club down the stretch almost surely would be minimal, but it would be nice to see the former top prospect back in the majors.

Jurickson Profar (shoulder) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Thursday with Low-A Hickory.

Profar had surgery in February to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder and will strictly be used as a designated hitter. It's unclear when he'll be ready for game action. The Rangers could have him play some fall or winter ball to catch up on lost time.
Aug 27 - 5:30 PM

Jurickson Profar (shoulder) could begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Hickory in the next few days.

Working his way back from surgery in February to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder, Profar would be used in the designated hitter spot with Hickory. When he'll be allowed to play the field isn't known, but fall and/or winter ball would seem likely. Profar hasn't played in a game since September of 2013.
Aug 26 - 10:25 AM

Jurickson Profar (shoulder) has begun playing catch from 60 feet.

Profar underwent surgery back in February to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder but has progressed nicely in his recovery so far. He has a long way to go to re-establish himself after missing back-to-back seasons because of injury.
Jun 22 - 8:08 PM

Rangers placed INF Jurickson Profar on the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for Edgar Olmos on the 40-man roster. Profar underwent surgery Monday to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder and will miss his second straight season.
Feb 24 - 1:35 PM

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.
Feb 23 - 2:02 PM

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.
Feb 19 - 4:18 PM

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.
Feb 10 - 12:28 PM

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.
