IAN KINSLER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Kinsler stays motivated, productive as he ages

Ian Kinsler will never have a video post on Twitter performing feats of strength. For one, he's not a big social media fan. For another, he doesn't train that way. When it comes to baseball training, he has realized that extremes mean little for him.

Kinsler where he wants to be, still with Tigers

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) -- When the Detroit Tigers indicated they were willing to listen to offers for their top players, Ian Kinsler became a prime candidate to be traded.

"Nothing happened, offseason went smooth, got myself...

Is It Time to Worry About Ian Kinsler?

The 2016 season was a great one, statistically, for Ian Kinsler. By WAR, wRC+ and wOBA, it was (at least) one of the best three seasons of his career — a career that should garner a modicum of Hall of Fame debate when he retires. But in looking at his Steamer projection for this season, I started to wonder — is this the season we should start to worry about Ian Kinsler? What...

Ian Kinsler is Turning Back the Clock

Usually, we expect players to follow a more or less expected curve of decline when they hit their 30s. Obviously everyone is different, but baseball is a young man’s game, and father time comes for us all. Research by Jeff Zimmerman in 2013 showed that hitters don’t even tend to peak nowadays: on average, they perform at a plateau upon reaching the majors, then they decline...

WATCH: Why did Ian Kinsler purposely let infield fly drop?

It’ll wind up in the box score as a 4-6 ground ball fielder’s choice. In reality, it was a force play during Sunday’s game between the Tigers and Astros that was equal parts bizarre and brilliant.

Entering the day sporting a .190/.227/.238 slash line over his last five games, the 33-year-old veteran capped things off on Sunday with a spectacularly bad 0-for-4 with a strikeout showing against the Houston Astros. The frustrations of Kinsler’s mini-slump appeared to boil over...
