Updating a previous report, Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler (shoulder) isn't expected to miss more than a couple days after straining and re-straining his left shoulder lifting, according to Tigers manager Brad Ausmus.
Fantasy Tip: Kinsler is one of the top players at second base and projects to hit leadoff for a talented offensive squad. As long as his shoulder injury doesn't linger, he'll remain one of the first second basemen off the board in fantasy drafts.

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler is expected to bat leadoff this year against right-handed pitchers, with OF Rajai Davis in the leadoff spot against lefties.
Fantasy Tip: Kinsler is no longer an option in the first couple of rounds of fantasy drafts, but he remains a very consistent top-level option at the keystone. Davis is a late-round target for stolen bases, but be aware that he is likely to lose some playing time to Anthony Gose eventually.

Detroit Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler is considered the most obvious option to hit second for the Tigers, according to MLB.com's Jason Beck, but Beck expects Kinsler to hit leadoff. Beck describes Tigers SS Jose Iglesias as the candidate with the best skill set to bat second. Tigers manager Brad Ausmus also mentioned Tigers C Alex Avila for consideration to hit second.
Fantasy Tip: Kinsler is one of the top second baseman in fantasy regardless of whether he hits leadoff or second for the Tigers. Iglesias would become an AL-only league consideration for fantasy teams if he were to win the job batting second, and Avila would move firmly into C2 territory in two-catcher formats if he hits second.
