Arlington, Tx (Texas Rangers Media Release) — The Texas Rangers announced today that the club has reinstated second baseman Ian Kinsler from the 15-day disabled list and optioned infielder Leury Garcia to Triple-A Round Rock.
That means they can keep prospect Jurickson Profar in the majors.
Kinsler is in the starting lineup for today’s game against Toronto.
He played 2 games on an injury rehabilitation assignment on Thursday and Friday for Frisco (AA) vs. Corpus Christi, going 0-for-8 with a walk.
He started Thursday as the designated hitter and last night at second base (0-for-4, BB, SO).
Kinsler was placed on the disabled list on May 19, retroactive to May 18, with a right intercostal strain.
His last appearance in a game for Texas came as a pinch-runner on May 17 vs. Detroit.
