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.
UPDATE -- If you want to have a little bit of hope before reality smashes it into tiny bits, there is this from Jeff Wilson:
