Profar latest injured for banged-up Rangers


Injuries continue to plague the Texas Rangers, who have seen many players sent to the disabled list early this season.

The latest player to be bitten by the injury bug was shortstop Jurickson Profar, who exited Monday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays early.

Profar collided with Rays center fielder Mallex Smith after Smith’s slide into second base. Profar is in the concussion protocol and will be re-evaluated on Tuesday.

Rangers medical staff cared for Profar before the shortstop left the field. He was replaced by Drew Robinson.

Texas has lost Delino DeShields, Rougned Odor, Elvis Andrus and Doug Fister — all starters — to the DL with different injuries.
