Jurickson Profar has restrained the same shoulder muscle. He is getting a second opinion.
Profar went from being a perfectly fine DL stash in keeper leagues to a cautionary tale here now. Already slated to miss, pretty much, the entire first half of the season, Profar is likely to be sidelined even longer with this issue. At least it opens the door a little wider for Rougned Odor who should continue to see regular at-bats at the Texas keystone.ANALYST: Howard Bender
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
