He was expected to compete for a spot on the Rangers during Spring Training this season, but had an injury and a surgery in February to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder took him out of the running.

Jung came back from injury in July. He hit .274 with six homers in 22 games at AAA Round Rock.

He has played a total of 152 games in the minors, hitting .311/.381/.539 with 30 homers and 118 RBIs.
