Rangers' Kinsler may start year on DL
Texas Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler is expecting to open the season on the disabled list because of a high ankle sprain.
The Rangers on Sunday acquired Andres Blanco from the Chicago Cubs partially as insurance in case Kinsler was unable to open the season.
Kinsler says there is no timetable for his return.
He hit .253 with 31 homers and 86 RBIs in 144 games for Texas last season.
