The Texas Rangers placed second baseman Ian Kinsler on the 15-day disabled list Thursday with a strained left groin.
. . .
Rangers manager Ron Washington said Kinsler experienced the groin problem for the past three days. The team decided to shut Kinsler down following an MRI on Wednesday, hoping the injury will heal in the next two weeks.
"Anytime you strain a groin, it's serious," Washington said. "He's been playing with it. But this is too important. We want to have him down the stretch. We need him to play. We don't want a sprain to become a pull. This way we can get the 15 days and get it over with. It would be easy for something to get worse."
