Jurickson Profar Newsbeat

Tuesday, January 26, 2016

Texas Rangers: Jon Daniels indicates Rangers would consider Jurickson Profar in the outfield, if needed | SportsDay

The primary options would be newcomer Justin Ruggiano along with Ryan Rua, the opening-day left fielder last season, and Patrick Kivlehan, acquired from Seattle in the Leonys Martin trade. Top prospects Nomar Mazara and Joey Gallo could play their way into the equation.
So could Profar.

Profar claims he’s healthy after missing 2 years

Profar was able to play in just 12 Minor League games on medical rehabilitation assignment at the end of the season and another 20 in the Arizona Fall League. He was used exclusively at designated hitter, but Profar said the Fall League work was productive. He was 20-for-75 (.267) with two home runs and 20 RBIs in 20 games.

“Yeah, it was good to play again, to get the feeling, because I played against good pitchers,” Profar said. “It was great.”

Profar is on the big league roster, but the Rangers don’t see him making the team in Spring Training. They have Elvis Andrus at short, Rougned Odor at second and Hanser Alberto and veteran Pedro Ciriaco as the utility candidates.

The Rangers want Profar to begin the season playing everyday shortstop at Triple-A and regain lost time. He is fine with that after what he has been through.

“I just want to play,” Profar said. “Just want to play, and I know by playing it’s going to take care of itself. I know I can play baseball. ... So now that I’m healthy, everything is good and now everybody’s going to see it.”

Sanchez, Meadows and Blandino Home Runs Lead West To Fall Stars Victory - BaseballAmerica.com

A Jurickson Profar sighting.

There were also positive signs for Rangers shortstop Jurickson Profar as he tries to prove he’s healthy after missing two full seasons with a shoulder injury. Profar isn’t playing in the field yet–he was the West’s designated hitter, but he did have a pair of singles, a pair of walks and two stolen bases.

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.”
