Labor Day Rangers-Royals lineups: No Jurickson Profar

Ian Kinsler told manager Ron Washington that his back is fine, so Washington put Ian Kinsler back in the Rangers' lineup for the opener of a four-game series at Kansas City. Kinsler sat Sunday in Cleveland, and Jurickson Profar made his first major-league start. He homered and doubled in his first two at-bats. Washington said that Profar will play again this month, but if Kinsler and Elvis Andrus are healthy, Profar will sit.
