The Texas Rangers have placed second baseman Ian Kinsler on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left groin.
The move Thursday came a day after Kinsler sat out a 3-1 loss to
the Oakland A's. He started the season on the DL and missed the
first 22 games with a high ankle sprain sustained in spring
Kinsler is hitting .298 with six home runs and 38 RBIs in 76
To replace Kinsler, the Rangers purchased the contract of first
baseman/outfielder Mitch Moreland from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Texas made room for Moreland on the 40-man roster by
transferring reliever Mark Lowe to the 60-day DL.
