Josh Jung undergoes shoulder surgery, out 6-8 months

Josh Jung underwent left shoulder labrum repair today and is expected to be out six to eight months.

Fantasy Impact

It was anticipated the Rangers' top prospect would make his major league debut this season, but that now seems off the table. Even with a best-case timeline, he wouldn't be able to return to the team until September. Dynasty managers should obviously continue to hold him, but for this year, Isiah Kiner-Falefa's stock should see a bump as he is the anticipated starter at third base right now.

Josh Jung promoted to Triple-A Round Rock

The Rangers promoted 3B prospect Josh Jung to Triple-A Round Rock.

Fantasy Impact

Jung is the Rangers' top position player prospect. He has hit well this season and should be a factor in redraft leagues at some point in 2022.

Josh Jung (foot) not expected to be game-ready until late May at least

Rangers 3B prospect Josh Jung (foot) isn't expected to be game-ready until late May or early June.

Fantasy Impact

Jung recently had surgery to repair a stress fracture in his left foot, which is costing him a lot of development time. There's a chance that he could make his MLB debut by the end of the season if everything goes well. He's a name to know for dynasty league managers.

Josh Jung diagnosed with stress fracture in his left foot

Josh Jung has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his left foot that will require surgery. Jung will have the surgery done in Texas and will have a screw put in his foot.

Fantasy Impact

This is tough news for the Rangers' top prospect. It is estimated that it could take 6-8 weeks for Jung to recover from the foot surgery, but the Rangers indicated he may only miss a couple weeks of playing time. The Rangers likely won't rush Jung back and will exercise caution in his rehab. As long as there are no major setbacks, Jung should still make his major league debut in 2021 -- the question now becomes when.

Josh Jung (foot) 'unavailable' on Friday

Josh Jung is reportedly 'unavailable' on Friday due to pain in his left foot. Jung will be evaluated further.

Fantasy Impact

It is unclear at this time whether Jung's foot pain is significant. We'll be sure to follow the news around the injury as it comes out. Jung is widely regarded as the Rangers' top prospect. Assuming this foot injury isn't severe, Jung should make his major league debut at some point in 2021. The former eighth overall pick out of Texas Tech possesses a well developed hit tool that could impact the Rangers lineup right away.
