One Of The Ugliest Head First Slides You Will Ever See Lands Ian Kinsler On The D.L.

The Texas Rangers announced this afternoon that the club has placed second baseman Ian Kinsler on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Saturday, with a right intercostal strain. To take Kinsler’s place on the active roster, the Rangers have recalled infielder Jurickson Profar from Triple-A Round Rock.

Kinsler is batting .302 with 7 home runs, 11 doubles, 20 RBI, and 24 runs scored in 40 games for Texas this season. His 16 multi-hit games are tied for 7th-most in the American League.

Profar, 20, will be seeking his first major league action in 2013. He has spent the entire season with Round Rock, batting .278 (40-144) with 27 runs, 7 doubles, 2 triples, 4 home runs, 19 RBI, and 21 walks in 37 games.

Having Kinsler go on the D.L. is a huge blow to fantasy baseball owners because he’s one of the top second baseman in MLB.
