Rangers | Ian Kinsler to begin rehab Thursday

Updating a previous report, Texas Rangers 2B Ian Kinsler (ribcage) went through a full workout Wednesday, June 12, and he has been cleared to begin a minor-league rehab assignment. He will report to Double-A Frisco Thursday, June 13. Kinsler will serve as the designated hitter Thursday, before playing second base Friday, June 14, and Saturday, June 15. He might be activated Sunday, June 16, or Monday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: It would be best if Kinsler comes off the DL Sunday, so fantasy owners can see him prove his health in one full game before plugging him back into the active lineup. In any event, get ready to get him in there. His return will push Jurickson Profar to a utility role, or perhaps back to Triple-A.
