The Texas Rangers once looked like a team with an absolutely stocked farm system and the jewel of that system was Curacaoan middle infielder Jurickson Profar. Well, two years later Profar looks like a guy who just can’t catch a break, as he is now set to miss his second season in a row.
On Monday it was announced that Profar had a torn labrum in his right shoulder and would miss the 2015 season. The recovery for that procedure should take at least nine months. Profar was expected to take over the starting second base job for the Rangers in 2014, but a shoulder injury forced him out for the season. Now he’s out thanks to another shoulder issue.
