Ian Kinsler experienced some discomfort in an undisclosed area Tuesday, which led to manager Ron Washington having his everyday second baseman serve as the designated hitter.
Jurickson Profar is playing second base. Lance Berkman, meanwhile, has not been in the lineup in a week. Washington said an opportunity hasn't presented itself to get Berkman in the game yet.
