GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- As expected, Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler will start the season on the disabled list, general manager Jon Daniels confirmed Thursday.

"We haven't made the roster move yet, but the plan is for him to open on the DL," Daniels said.

On Wednesday, Kinsler, who has has been sidelined since March 12 with a sprained right ankle, said he was headed to the disabled list. He has not started running or doing agility drills and he has played in just five games in the Cactus League.

Andres Blanco is expected to be the Rangers' starting second baseman. Kinsler can be retroactively placed on the disabled list as far back as March 19.
