Rangers | Jurickson Profar transferred to 60-day DL

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 12:57:55 -0800

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar (shoulder) has been placed on the 60-day disabled list, effective on Tuesday, Feb. 24.

Fantasy Tip: This move was strictly procedural, as Profar will miss the season due to labrum surgery. Profar may be worth drafting in keeper leagues only for 2016 and beyond, but do not draft him at all in 2015-only formats.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar has surgery

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 11:15:30 -0800

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar (shoulder) had successful surgery on his shoulder Monday, Feb. 23, and he's expected to miss the entire 2015 season. Profar will need a year for his arm to get back to 100%.

Fantasy Tip: You can forget about Profar in all single-year fantasy baseball formats in 2015. His absence will increase the value of Rougned Odor at the keystone in Texas, though. Odor provides a nice combo of power and speed that'll be available in the latter parts of mixed drafts.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar has torn labrum

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 13:39:56 -0800

Updating a previous report, Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar's (shoulder) surgery Monday, Feb. 23, will be to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. It is believed Profar's shoulder instability has been the result of his torn labrum.

Fantasy Tip: Until Profar has a clear recovery timetable, it will be difficult to gauge his value in seasonal formats. Therefore, he is likely best left undrafted in the majority of leagues. He still has the pedigree to warrant attention in keeper/dynasty formats, though, and there is a chance he may actually be undervalued. Continue to check back for updates on his return timeline and the severity of his injury.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar requires surgery

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 13:26:59 -0800

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar (shoulder) will undergo shoulder surgery Monday, Feb. 23, in Arlington, Texas. He had been having MRIs every three weeks to monitor his situation, and the exam Tuesday, Feb. 17, revealed increased strain on the subscapularis muscle in his right shoulder. Profar's recovery timetable cannot be determined until the extent of the surgery is known.

Fantasy Tip: At this point, Profar is nothing but a late-round flier and likely not worth a pick in the majority of seasonal leagues. He still has value in keeper/dynasty formats, where his fantasy stock may even slip into profit territory. Continue to check back for updates, especially on the severity of the injury and Profar's recovery timeline.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar to start in minors?

Sun, 15 Feb 2015 21:07:00 -0800

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar (shoulder) might return to second base at the major league level at some point this season, especially if 2B Rougned Odor struggles. However, the current expectations are for Profar to begin the season in the minors until he proves he is ready to return. The team is also primarily working him at shortstop, at least early in spring while he makes his way back.

Fantasy Tip: Profar is still a player worth keeping a close eye on for FantasyScore purposes, but he needs to show the team he is 100 percent ready for the rigors of everyday life at the big league level again. It is uncertain when he will get a chance to slot into the lineup on a regular basis.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar on schedule in rehab

Mon, 09 Feb 2015 15:26:39 -0800

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar (shoulder) is now playing catch and taking dry swings in his recovery from a torn muscle in his right shoulder, according to general manager Jon Daniels. Profar will continue to have MRI exams on his shoulder every three weeks, and it's doubtful that he'll make the roster out of spring training. "He's on schedule," Daniels said. "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."
