Last week Jurickson Profar arrived at Rangers camp with a sore shoulder, which was diagnosed as mild tendinitis.
As of yesterday he was cleared to resume baseball activities, but now the Rangers have scrapped those plans and Anthony Andro of FOX Sports Southwest reports that Profar won’t resume throwing for at least a week and also hasn’t been cleared to swing a bat.
General manager Jon Daniels told Andro that “there’s not much room for another setback to get ready for Opening Day.”
That might be more “worried GM” than “medical staff’s opinion” but either way it’s not a great thing to be hearing in mid-February considering how important the 20-year-old is to the Rangers’ plans this season following the departure of Ian Kinsler.
