Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler continues hot start Saturday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler went 4 for 5 from the plate in Saturday's 9-6 win over the Indians. Kinsler tallied three runs and two RBI and feels he's in a good place, partly because of where he hits in the lineup, reports MLB.com.
"I'm in a great position," Kinsler said. "I usually have guys on base with speed, and I have Miggy standing on deck behind me. That makes for a lot of chances, and quality chances. If I can squeak one through the infield or even hit one hard at an outfielder, I'm most likely looking at an RBI. I've got Miggy behind me to protect me, so it's a great spot to hit -- probably the best in the American League."
Kinsler has a sizzling .455/.480/.545 slash line in the first five games of the season.

Kinsler is off to a promising start, batting .500 (5 for 8) with four RBI in two games.
Tigers' Ian Kinsler (shoulder) back in the lineup on Tuesday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/17/15) Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler returned to the starting lineup on Tuesday after missing the last few days with shoulder soreness. Kinsler was sidelined since Thursday due to the issue, and will bat third in the order.
Tigers' Ian Kinsler (shoulder) expected to return Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(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.
|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.
