Jurickson Profar is back on the injury report.
The Rangers second baseman was scratched from today’s game with recurring right shoulder soreness. He has been sent for an MRI exam. Adam Rosales will start at second base in his place.
Profar has been dealing with this issue most of spring training, but had returned to the field in the past week with the expectation that he’d be ready by Opening Day. That is now in question.
