Kinsler struggling, held out of Sunday's lineup

Kinsler opened the season on the disabled list and has hit a lousy .270/.377/.345 with only one home run, four stolen bases and 14 RBI through 148 at-bats since being activated.  The ankle, which was sprained badly during spring training, has hampered Kinsler’s ability on the basepaths and on his initial steps out of the batter’s box.

The 27-year-old owns an 820 career OPS and belted 31 home runs last season while also tallying 31 stolen bases.  To say the least, 2010 has been a mess.

    A .377 OBP is lousy? Interesting. And don’t use RBI’s to measure an induvidual players value.
