Description: Rangers second baseman Jurickson Profar will be sidelined for three-to-five days after having his wisdom teeth removed, according to mlb.com.
Insight: Profar still hasn't played the field due to shoulder tendinitis, but the Rangers think he has enough time to be ready for Opening Day. The 20-year-old was considered the top prospect in baseball going into 2013 but hit just .234 with a .644 OPS in 85 games. He's expected to start at second base this season after Ian Kinsler was traded to the Tigers.
Description: Giants second baseman Marco Scutaro (back) has yet to swing a bat this spring, according to csnbayarea.com.
Insight: Scutaro began taking grounders a few days ago. The Giants planned for the 38-year-old infielder to work on strengthening his back, abdominals and hips over the first two weeks of spring training. Scutaro gutted out 127 games last season despite dealing with several injuries and hit .297, but he had just two homers, 31 RBI, 57 runs, two steals and a .726 OPS.
