ARLINGTON, Texas -- Rangers third baseman Kevin Kouzmanoff will get a second opinion before having a herniated disk in his lower back surgically repaired.

While giving several injury updates Tuesday, Texas assistant general manager Thad Levine also said second baseman Jurickson Profar had an MRI and can start swinging a bat. Profar tore a muscle in his right shoulder during spring training.

Opening day starter Tanner Scheppers, out since April 18 with right elbow inflammation, is set to resume throwing Thursday, a day after left-hander Derek Holland's scheduled bullpen. Holland is coming back from off-season left knee surgery.

Joe Saunders is scheduled to throw three innings in extended spring training in Arizona on Friday. Saunders was hit by a line drive on his left ankle in his only start April 4.
