Profar to have shoulder surgery, could miss 2015 season

Infielder Jurickson Profar is unlikely to play for the Texas Rangers in 2015 after he undergoes surgery on his right shoulder.

It's a massive setback for Profar, who missed all of the 2014 season due to three tears in a muscle on the back of his shoulder.

The Rangers announced an MRI performed Tuesday showed a strain on another shoulder muscle.

The team physician, Dr. Keith Meister, will perform Profar's surgery on Monday and then release a more definite timetable on the player's return.

Profar was penciled in as the Rangers' second baseman.
