ARLINGTON -- Ian Kinsler showed signs of pain in the ninth inning Tuesday when he scored a run, and said today he is dealing with a nagging injury.
But Kinsler declined to specify where it is.
"Everyone has problems this time of year," Kinsler said. "I just have to manage it and make sure it doesn't get any worse than it is."
Manager Ron Washington put Kinsler in the designated hitter slot today. With a day off Thursday, the expectation is for Kinsler to return to the field on Friday when the Rangers open a three-game series against the A's.
Kinsler spent almost a month on the disabled list earlier this season with a right intercostal strain.
