Rangers: Jurickson Profar to begin season in minors

After Jurickson Profar missed the entire 2014 season with a shoulder injury it should come as little surprise that the Texasn Rangers plan to start the 21-year-old in the minors when next season gets underway. While the Rangers have been encouraged by the recovery of Profar they have him ticketed for Triple-A to start the year rather than contend for a spot as a bench bat. Rangers...

Rangers Injury Update: Jurickson Profar, Mitch Moreland

The Texas Rangers look forward to the 2015 season coming off a dismal 67-win season which featured a barrage of injuries.

Deep Impact: Robert Refsnyder

There's playing with projection (Jurickson Profar). There's playing with magic (Derek Jeter). Then there's playing with zeal (Robert Refsnyder). He's no Mookie Betts, but he's also not nearly as blocked at second base. He also might be a better bet for some counting stats in NY than Tommy La Stella in ATL.
