    But the biggest problem for the Royals wasn’t Ian Kinsler. It was Ned Yost’s bullpen management.

    For the past few weeks we’ve been previewing the 2014 season. Here, in handy one-stop-shopping form, is our package of previews from the National League Central.

  13. Tigers move Austin Jackson in lineup, make Ian Kinsler their leadoff hitter

    Kinsler

    The Tigers have made second baseman Ian Kinsler their leadoff hitter, bumping center fielder Austin Jackson down to the fifth slot in the lineup, MLB.com’s Jason Beck writes in his latest column. Since joining the Tigers in December 2009 in a three-way trade with the Diamondbacks and Yankees, Jackson has taken 2,554 of his 2,574 career…

    The Rangers have been bitten hard by the injury bug, and they will now add another key player to the infirmary. Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Times reports that Profar has a torn teres major muscle and will be out 10-12 weeks. He does not need to undergo surgery, according to Drew Davison of…

  15. Rangers shut down shortstop Elvis Andrus from throwing

    Elvis Andrus

    Rangers second baseman Jurickson Profar is finally cleared to play defense after missing time with a shoulder injury, but now shortstop Elvis Andrus has been shut down with elbow problems for the second time this month. Andrus will take at least a few games off and Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star Telegram reports…

  16. Prince Fielder wishes his old Tigers teammates well

    Mar 17, 2014, 2:10 PM EST

    Prince Fielder

    Ian Kinsler famously — and quite peevishly — wished his former team bad tidings after being traded, saying he wished they’d go 0-162 and calling his former GM Jon Daniels names. The guy he was traded for is a lot more magnanimous about his old mates. This about the Tigers, from Jeff Passan’s feature on…

  17. Jurickson Profar’s rough spring now includes teeth removal

    Jurickson Profar

    Jurickson Profar still hasn’t been cleared to play defense because of a shoulder injury and now the Rangers infielder has another problem to deal with: T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that he had four wisdom teeth removed today and is expected to be sidelined for 3-5 days. Profar was already cutting it kind of close…

  18. No, Ian Kinsler, you were not taken out of context

    Mar 5, 2014, 3:30 PM EST

    Ian Kinsler Tigers Getty

    It’s laughable that Ian Kinsler said that his disparaging comments about Jon Daniels and the Rangers — in which he called Daniels a “sleazeball” — were “kind of taken out of context.” I mean, if just doesn’t make sense because there’s no context in which “sleazeball” really looks good. But if you’re inclined to give…

  19. Reporter calls Ian Kinsler as self-absorbed as A-Rod

    Ian Kinsler Tigers Getty

    Wow, that escalated quickly. Ian Kinsler certainly stepped in it yesterday, but it’s nor more of a faux pas than you see a handful of times a year. A guy talking smack about his old team and old boss. It happens and it usually blows over pretty quickly. But Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning…

  20. Josh Hamilton loves having company in the Texas Rangers’ doghouse

    After Ian Kinsler’s unfortunate interview went public this morning, another former Ranger reached out to him: Not any fun being in the Texas doghouse, is it @IKinsler3? — Josh Hamilton (@thejoshhamilton) March 4, 2014   Hamilton, you’ll recall, drew the ire of Rangers fans after he said Dallas is not a baseball town. He was right…

  21. Ian Kinsler hopes Rangers go 0-162, calls GM a “sleazeball”

    Ian Kinsler Tigers Getty

    Ian Kinsler isn’t happy about the way things shook down in Texas, though he comes off far worse than anyone there in an ESPN The Magazine piece posted today. Kinsler, traded from Texas to Detroit for Prince Fielder over the winter, called Rangers GM Jon Daniels a “sleazeball” who “got in good with the owners…

    Jurickson Profar was shut down earlier this week due to lingering tendinitis in his right shoulder, but Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that he was cleared to resume swinging a bat yesterday. This is an encouraging development for Profar, though it’s unclear when he’ll be allowed to start throwing again. The original…

  24. Alan Trammell: you’re not helping

    Feb 20, 2014, 2:12 PM EST

    Alan Trammell

    Alan, dude. You’re my childhood idol. I wore number 3 when I played little league and Babe Ruth baseball because I adored you. And I have been outraged to the point of insanity that, since you have retired, neither the Tigers nor the BBWAA has given you your due. Your number 3 should be retired.…

  25. Rangers worried about Jurickson Profar’s shoulder

    Jurickson Profar

    Last week Jurickson Profar arrived at Rangers camp with a sore shoulder, which was diagnosed as mild tendinitis. As of yesterday he was cleared to resume baseball activities, but now the Rangers have scrapped those plans and Anthony Andro of FOX Sports Southwest reports that Profar won’t resume throwing for at least a week and…
