|(3/16/15) Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler is scheduled to return to the lineup Tuesday after missing the last few days with shoulder soreness, MLive.com reports.
Kinsler told manager Brad Ausmus that he could have played in Monday's spring game, but the second baseman was given extra time to rest and recover from the injury. He was initially scratched from Friday's lineup with the shoulder issue.

|(3/15/15) Ian Kinsler will miss one more game with a wrist injury.
Kinsler missed Saturday and Sunday's games for the Tigers. He was willing to travel to Jupiter to play on Monday, but manager Brad Ausmus wanted to give him one more day to rest the injury, according to George Sipple of the Detroit Free Press.
Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler still out
|by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com|
|(3/14/15) Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler missed Saturday's game due to a sore left shoulder, according to mlive.com.
Kinsler, 32, was injured after being hit by a pitch earlier this month. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Kinsler strained his shoulder while lifting weights last week.
"We're assuming, in a couple days, he'll be able to play again," Ausmus said. "It didn't really happen on the baseball field."
Kinsler will not travel with the team to Jupiter, Florida on Sunday.
Ian Kinsler (shoulder) joins the list of injured Tigers stars
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/13/15) The Tigers announced All-Star second baseman Ian Kinsler was scratched from Friday's spring lineup against the Braves due to left shoulder soreness. He is listed as day to day.
Kinsler, who is a four-time All-Star, is the latest Tigers star to be sidelined due to injury. Yoenis Cespedes left Thursday's spring game due to quad tightness. Miguel Cabrera (ankle) and Victor Martinez (knee) have yet to appear in a spring game and are questionable for the start of the season. Catcher Alex Avila is day to day with a back injury.
Aside from the injury, Kinsler is having a good start to the spring. He is batting .333 (5 for 15) with one triple, two doubles, one home run, five RBI, three walks and five runs in six games.
|2014 summary: Ian Kinsler's eight-year run as the Rangers' second baseman ended last offseason when he was sent to the Tigers for Prince Fielder and cash considerations. Also gone were Kinsler's string of seasons with average-or-better walk rates, as he came to Detroit with a new aggressive approach. It didn't hurt his power production (17 home runs, 40 doubles) or his batting average (.275), and joining the Tigers' lineup, which ranked second in the majors in scoring, did wonders for his run production. Kinsler scored 100 runs, and even though he hit mostly in the leadoff or second spot, he drove in 92 runs.|
Playing time status: Kinsler had health issues earlier in his career, but he set a career high with 161 games played in 2014. He has also played in at least 155 games in three of the last four seasons.
2015 outlook: Though his new style may not be popular with owners in OBP leagues, in traditional formats, Kinsler is just short of being an elite option. He should repeat as one of the top six second basemen in Fantasy value, and can be targeted as an early-round option.
