Jurickson Profar aggravated shoulder injury rolling out of bed

Jurickson-Profar-RangersJurickson Profar has not appeared in a game yet this season for the Texas Rangers, and from the sound of it the 21-year-old shortstop will not be returning any time soon. Profar was ruled out for 10-12 weeks after tearing a muscle in his shoulder back in March. On Thursday, Rangers GM Jon Daniels said he could miss another 8-12 weeks after aggravating the injury.

Profar recently began playing in extended spring training games, but Daniels said he is not believed to have tweaked his shoulder on the baseball diamond. Instead, it was more of a “baseball” injury — if you know what we mean.

The bad news about Profar came on the same day it was announced that Prince Fielder could miss the remainder of the season after having a neck procedure, so Rangers fans are likely feeling a bit anxious.

Don’t feel bad, Jurickson. You’re not the only professional athlete to fall victim to the mattress.
