Kinsler sits with bruised ribs again
MAY 18, 2013 6:23p ET
Kinsler didn't start Saturday either but was used as a pinchrunner late in the game.
Texas manager Ron Washington said Kinsler would be available to run again Saturday or as a defensive replacement for Leury Garcia, who started at second for a second-consecutive game.
Washington wasn't sure about Kinsler starting Sunday either, saying that decision would be made later.
Kinsler originally bruised the ribs last weekend when he was hit by a throw while sliding at second on a stolen base attempt. He re-aggravated the injury Thursday night trying to get out of the way of a Justin Verlander pitch that hit Kinsler.
