Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar (shoulder) doesn't expect to play again in the 2014 season. "If I have to lose the year, that's all right. I want to get better," he said.

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar (shoulder) is dealing with a Grade 2 strain of his shoulder muscle and has been shut down for the time being. There is no timetable for his return, but he's likely looking at a return sometime within eight to 12 weeks.
