SURPRISE, Ariz. -- So far, Texas Rangers second baseman Jurickson Profar's shoulder isn't giving him fits as he begins a throwing program.

Profar threw out to 70 feet Thursday and Friday morning, he added underhand flips and short throws to second as if he were starting double plays and said his shoulder felt fine.

The plan is to continue to progress and throw more each day.

Other injuries:

* CF Leonys Martin is listed as day-to-day with back tightness, something that several Rangers players have dealt with this spring.

* RHP Tanner Scheppers (back tightness) reported no issues after his live batting practice session Thursday.

* RHP Nick Tepesch (back tightness) had no issues after his live batting practice session Friday.

* LHP Matt Harrison (back) threw Thursday and felt fine. He'll continue to slowly ramp up.
