SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Texas Rangers rookie left-hander Brock Burke will miss the 2020 season because of a torn labrum in his left shoulder.  Burke is scheduled to have surgery Friday in Texas that will be performed by team physician Dr. Keith Meister. The recovery period is expected to be about a year. Burke made his big league debut last August, and started six games before being shut down because of shoulder issues. The Rangers appear set in the starting rotation with five veterans. But Burke was among several young pitchers expected to provide some starting depth.
