The Texas Rangers have placed second basemen Ian Kinslder on the 15-fday disabled list. Kinsler’s time on the disabled list is retroactive to Saturday as he is dealing with a right intercostal strain. Jurickson Profar has been called up from Triple-A to assume his roster spot. On the season Kinsler is batting .302 with 7 home runs, 11 doubles, 20 RBI, and 24 runs scored in 40 games for Texas this season. Kinsler will be able to come off the disabled list on June 2. The Rangers call up of Profar will bring one of the most talked about minor leaguers to the major league leve for the first time in 2013. Profar was hitting .278 with 4 home runs and 19 RBI in 37 games at the Triple-A level. Profar has hit safely in 8 straight for Round Rock and had his first multi-home run game of the season on Friday. Profar has seen time at second and shorstop this season.
