General Manager Jon Daniels said that the first week of June is a reasonable return date for Jurickson Profar (shoulder).
Profar tore a muscle in his shoulder and has been out since late-March. At the time, it was estimated that he would miss 10-12 weeks. Assuming that he does return at the beginning of June, Profar would be in the original window that was anticipated for him when he originally went down. Only 21, Profar has plenty of time to get healthy and mature as a baseball player.ANALYST: David Kerr
Marc Krauss went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Thursday in Toronto.
Krauss is hitting only .150 with a .350 slugging percentage after launching his first home run of the season. It was just his seventh game of the season, but there’s no doubt he’ll need to cut down on the strikeouts if he’s ever going to be able to showcase the decent pop he has. The left-handed hitter was called up from AAA to try and infuse some offense in Anaheim and was slugging .639 over his past 10 games. With Matt Joyce really struggling, expect Krauss to steal some of his at-bats over the next few weeks. Analysis: Kevin Luchansky
