The All-Star second baseman had an MRI Tuesday, which showed improvement in his strained left groin. But there is also still inflammation there, and he likely won't try to swing a bat for at least a week. Originally Kinsler was expected to return somewhere in mid August, but general manager Jon Daniels said it could be the end of the month until he returns now. Daniels said it could also be early September for his return too.
