Jurickson Profar Out 10-12 Weeks

The Texas Rangers will start the season without 2B Jurickson Profar, as he will be out with a torn teres major muscle.  The only thing saving his season is that he will NOT require surgery.  The Rangers traded Ian Kinsler in the offseason for Prince Fielder, and will turn to Josh Wilson or Brent Lillibridge to start the season.

Profar is just 21 years old and hit just .231 last season over 286 ABs but is a top prospect and a career .276 hitter in the minors. Profar was slated to hit toward the bottom of the Rangers lineup. We ranked Profar 12th at 2B but missing 3 months will move him down the rankings.
