Rangers to activate Kinsler on Wednesday

|
KANSAS CITY -- Second baseman Ian Kinsler is expected to be activated off the disabled list on Wednesday. Manager Ron Washington said Kinsler will not start on Wednesday but is expected back in the lineup on Friday.

He has been sidelined since July 29 with a strained left groin. Kinsler was 2-for-10 in three games for Frisco and was scheduled to play two games for Oklahoma City in a doubleheader on Tuesday. He'll join the Rangers in Kansas City on Wednesday.

Andres Blanco has been playing second base while Kinsler is out. Alex Cora is also on the active roster. Blanco went into Tuesday's game with 11 hits in his last 23 at-bats (.478) including five doubles and a triple.
