CultureMap Dallas: Profar situation spells bad luck for Rangers who want to shake off injury-filled season

Wasn’t the Texas Rangers’ injury-riddled 2014 supposed to end when the calendar turned over to 2015? I guess no one told Jurickson Profar.

Late last week the Rangers told the world that Profar would likely miss the entire 2015 season due to shoulder surgery. This is the same shoulder that kept Profar out for all of the 2014 season and the shoulder that Profar opted not to have surgery on last September.

This sounds like the equivalent of a black cat scurrying in front of the Rangers’ season before it even starts, seeing as spring training isn’t even a week old.

In my latest story at CultureMap Dallas, I explore why Profar’s injury hurts, but it may not be the end of the world.

Check out CultureMap Dallas for everything from breaking news to food, drink and society. It’s all there, including a local events calendar so you can see what’s hopping this weekend.

Until next time …
