SURPRISE, Ariz. — Third baseman Josh Jung will undergo an MRI exam on his left calf after feeling discomfort in it Friday morning only an hour into his first workout of spring training.

Jung, who was taking ground balls when the calf started aching, has been felled by injuries in two of the past three springs. He needed surgery for a stress fracture in his left foot in 2021 and had shoulder surgery for a torn left labrum in 2022.

He also missed time in the second half of last season after breaking his left thumb while attempting to catch a line drive in an August game. He returned in time for the postseason and batted over .300 as the Rangers won the World Series.
