Rangers Injury Update: Jurickson Profar gets promising MRI results

By on 10/31/2014 06:00:00 AM

The Texas Rangers struggled to a season that was decimated with injuries. Only five players appeared in 120 or more games and no pitcher reached 30 starts of 175 innings.  One significant injury was sustained by Jurickson Profar, who has missed the entire season as well as the Arizona Fall League. The good news is that the latest MRI on his shoulder revealed some good news.

I reported at the end of September that Profar was having issues with the shoulder injury which has sidelined him the entire season. He was seeing sports medicine specialists and was expected to be out of action for two to three months.

Evan Grant, who covers the Rangers for the Dallas Morning News, tweeted the following update on Profar's status.
Profar, a 21-year old shortstop from Netherlands Antilles, hit .234 with six home runs and 26 RBI in 85 games last season. In 94 career Major League games, Profar has a .231 average with seven home runs and 28 RBI.
