Jurickson Profar Out 10-12 Weeks

Well, if you needed another reason to finally be convinced that the Rangers have been snakebitten with injuries this Spring, the big one has finally hit.

Jurickson Profar will miss 10-12 weeks with a torn muscle in his throwing shoulder, an injury that the Rangers say won't require surgery. While they're also saying it's unrelated to the shoulder soreness Profar experienced earlier in camp, it's at least a bit concerning that a player as young as Profar is dealing with these kinds of shoulder issues.

As for replacements, the Rangers have a host of utility fielders that don't exactly leave you confident in seeing them play every day. Rougned Odor is also in AA, and it's possible that he could get an early look at the Major League level since he's viewed as a future starter.

As a player that was viewed to potentially have a breakout season, it's disappointing to say the least that we won't be seeing that from Profar in 2014, and I'm not sure there is much else to say about that.

Opening Day can't end Spring Training soon enough.
