When the Rangers open the 2010 season, it's likely that second baseman Ian Kinsler won't be on the field.
According to Jeff Miller of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, it's looking more likely that Kinsler will begin the season on the disabled list (DL) as he recovers from his ankle sprain.
"Whatever we decide is going to be in the best interest of Ian," manager Ron Washington said.
Kinsler was baseball's only 30-30 guy in 2009, but he's no stranger to the DL. He's averaged just shy of 130 games per season in his four-year career.
Since several fantasy owners may shy away from Kinsler due to his (lack of) durability, this (potential) brief stint on the DL could cause owners to overreact and create a buying opportunity.
In either case, buyer beware.
