Kinsler willing to switch positions
Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler said Thursday he is willing to switch positions if asked. He hasn’t been asked yet. Kinsler is an All-Star second baseman but the Rangers also have Jurickson Profar possibly ready for a fulltime role at the Major League level. It’s still early in the off-season and the Rangers are still reviewing all their possible options for the winter. Their priorities are catching and the bullpen.
Well, their top priority is pursuing free agent pitcher Zack Greinke or maybe re-signing outfielder Josh Hamilton.
But if Hamilton signs elsewhere, the Rangers could consider moving Kinsler to the outfield.
That decision hasn’t been made. But Kinsler did suggest Thursday that he is willing to do what the Rangers ask. They haven’t asked
