Jurickson Profar needs shoulder surgery, likely done for 2015

Jurickson Profar appears likely to miss his second consecutive season, as he needs shoulder surgery

Jurickson Profar needs shoulder surgery, which will likely end his 2015 season, according to Evan Grant.

This is a devastating development for Profar, the one-time #1 prospect in baseball who missed all of the 2014 season due to a torn shoulder muscle.  He will undergo the surgery on Monday.

Profar was expected to take over at second base for the Rangers in 2014, which was a major factor in the Rangers opting to send Ian Kinsler to Detroit in the (disastrous, so far) Prince Fielder trade.  Now, it appears his career is in jeopardy.

This sucks.
