Latest Update Ian Kinsler went 2-for-5 with a RBI, walk, three runs scored and a stolen base in the Tigers triumph over the Twins on Sunday.    Sun Aug, 24, 08:36 PM

Kinsler is having an interesting season. His .313 on-base percentage is a career-low, but his .282 batting average is the best mark he's posted since 2008. For the season, he's slashing .282/.315/.421 with 12 home runs and 13 steals. It seems likely he'll eclipse the 15/15 mark, but fall short of 20/20. His skills have clearly waned from their prime, but sitting atop one of the league's most talented lineups should keep him useful for fantasy purposes.Analyst: Spencer Silva

Assets & FlawsComplete Stats

Assets:   Is extremely productive for a second baseman, thanks to great athleticism and on-field intensity. A constant threat to hit a home run or steal a base, that helps him both in scoring a lot of runs and driving them in.
Flaws:  : Isn't a top-notch fielder at second base and can be a little injury-prone, which may result in an eventual position change. Still needs to find a greater level of consistency at the dish to become a superstar.

    Ian Kinsler hits 12th home run
  • Considering the decline we've seen in Kinsler's numbers these last two years, the season he's posting right now is nothing to complain about. Are the numbers elite? No, but considering the change in ballpark and lineup and that he's about to pass last year's totals altogether, you can't be upset with the consistency he's providing.Analyst: Howard Bender

    Ian Kinsler went 2-for-5 with a triple, double, RBI, a walk and two runs scored in the Tigers 8-6 win over the Ray's on Tuesday night. 
  • After going 2-for-17 (.118 BA) over his last five games, Kinsler got back on track Tuesday night logging his first extra-base hit since August 10. Despite his recent struggles Kinsler is having himself a solid first year with the Tigers, slashing .283/.316/.423 with 11 home runs, 65 RBI, 74 runs scored and 12 stolen bases. What is even more impressive is that he has only struck out 59 times over 515 at-bats, this coming after being rung up 90 times a season ago. Unless he falls completely off the map over the next six weeks, Kinsler remains a must-start in all fantasy format the rest of the way.Analyst: Matthew Beck
