Jurickson Profar 2B/SS TEX 1 Month

Profar will receive a platelet-rich plasma injection for his shoulder Friday, Anthony Andro of FOXSportsSouthwest.com reports.

The Rangers are hoping the injection will help clear up some of the soreness Profar has been experiencing with his problematic shoulder. If the shot fails to deliver its desired effect, Profar could be shut down for multiple months in an attempt to aid his recovery.

Rangers GM Jon Daniels said Tuesday that Profar is dealing with instability of his right shoulder, and will undergo an MRI for further clarity on the matter, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Daniels suspects Profar might be shut down for a two-to-three months as a result.

After his entire 2014 campaign was wiped out due to a torn muscle in his shoulder, Profar was on track to pick up some at-bats in the Arizona Fall League and return at full health for 2015, but that plan looks dicey at the moment. Though the Rangers will wait and see what the MRI reveals, Profar will almost certainly be held out of the AFL, and his participation for the early part of spring training remains something of a question mark as well. Through all his injury woes, Profar will only be 21 years old at the start of next season, but the ceiling for the former top-tier prospect seems to have been lowered considerably since 2012.

Profar is experiencing additional shoulder soreness, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Profar saw Dr. Neal ElAttrache on Friday, and is currently awaiting diagnosis on this new development. After missing the entire 2014 season with the shoulder issue, the Rangers had hoped he'd be able to play in the Arizona Fall League, but this is no longer the case according to MLB.com. The hope is that the latest setback isn't serious, and that he'll still be able to take the field during winter ball.

Profar (shoulder) is throwing from 75 feet and hopes to be able to play in the Fall Instructional League at some point, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Profar will likely play winter ball this season as well, health permitted, in an attempt to re-establish himself as a top prospect. His outlook for 2015 is a lot cloudier with Roughned Odor playing well as the everyday second baseman.

Profar (shoulder) has been cleared to begin a throwing program, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

This is just one step of many for Profar, but it represents the first positive news out of his camp for quite some time. If all goes as planned, he'll take the field during the Arizona Fall League shortly after the conclusion of the MLB regular season.

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.

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.

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.
