Biblical Plague Of Injuries Newsbeat

Thursday, May 22, 2014

MLB.com: Rangers’ Prince Fielder out for rest of season; Jurickson Profar likely out for season too

The little-known eleventh plague of Yahweh was the Plague of Season-Ending Injuries

DETROIT—Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder is expected to undergo surgery on Tuesday to repair a herniated disk in his neck and miss the rest of the season. Second baseman Jurickson Profar could also miss the rest of the season as the Rangers were hit with another double dose of bad injury news on Thursday.

Fielder, who was examined by Dr. Drew Dossett on Thursday, is seeking a second opinion but has told the Rangers that he wants to get the surgery done now. The recovery time is 3-4 months, there is a high rate of success and the Rangers are hopeful he will be at full strength in Spring Training. But he is likely done for this year.

“We’re looking forward to getting this guy healthy and seeing what he can do,” general manager Jon Daniels said. “But that’s in 2015 and beyond. We’re going to miss this guy.”
