ARLINGTON, TEXAS (AP) - The Texas Rangers have placed second baseman Ian Kinsler on the 15-day disabled list because of bruised ribs and recalled top prospect Jurickson Profar from Triple-A Round Rock.
The move was announced before the Rangers, with the best record in the majors, played their series finale against Detroit on Sunday night.
Kinsler is hitting .302 with seven home runs, 20 RBIs and 24 runs scored in 40 games.
Profar was hitting .278 at Round Rock, where he had an eight-game hitting streak. The 20-year-old Profar made his major league debut last season, hitting .176 in nine games.
