Rangers Minor League Insider: Profar could be option in September | The Star-Telegram

I hope the kid can salvage some type of career.

Profar had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder in late February after missing the entire 2014 season with a torn teres major muscle in the same shoulder. He last played in a regular season game for the Rangers on Sept. 27, 2013.

“It’s been two years out of baseball, and I’ll come here and just play,” he said. “Now everything is going to be good. I’m just having fun playing day-to-day.”

Fraley: Nearly two years out of baseball, Rangers prospect Jurickson Profar facing tough road to recovery | Dallas Morning News

It doesn’t sound like his return is a sure thing.

Profar, who was not available for comment, is going through daily rehabilitation sessions at the Arlington clinic of team physician Dr. Keith Meister. He undergoes an MRI test about every four weeks and advances if the result is good. Daniels said the club is looking for ways to keep Profar engaged and avoid discouragement about his situation.

“Ultimately, it is extremely tough on these guys when they’re away,” Daniels said. “You try to keep them grounded as much as possible, but the waiting is a challenge.”

When Profar returns, he will need extended playing time in the minors to scrape off the rust. No one dares guess when Profar will appear in the majors again, but it will not be any time soon. Nothing is guaranteed, even for the best of prospects.
