    • Tigers' Ian Kinsler: Out of Sunday lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Kinsler is out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins. Andrew Romine is starting at second base while Kinsler sits out for the second straight game. Kinsler's batting average took a significant dive this season, as it fell from 2016's .288 mark to .236. While he may bounce back a bit next season, the 35-year-old will likely struggle to regain his old form.

      By RotoWire Staff

      Kinsler is out of Saturday's lineup against the Twins. The Tigers are "battling" the Giants for who will get the first pick in next year's draft -- both teams are 63-97 entering play Sunday. With that in mind, it would not be surprising if Kinsler did not play again this season. Dixon Machado is starting at second base and hitting second.

    • Tigers' Ian Kinsler: Contract vests for 2018
      By RotoWire Staff

      By reaching 600 plate appearances this season on Tuesday, Kinsler's 2018 contract with the Tigers has vested, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. The Tigers previously had a club option for Kinsler next year at $10 million, or a $5 million buy-out. With that steep buy-out, the club likely would have exercised the option. Now, Kinsler is locked in for 2018. However, with another rebuilding year quite possibly ahead, the team could look to trade the 35-year-old during the offseason.

    • Kinsler went 2-for-4 while driving in his team's lone run in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to Kansas City. Kinsler came in with a .372 wOBA against lefties and just a .298 mark facing righties, and the gap in those splits widened with his third-inning RBI single against Royals left-hander Jason Vargas. He added an infield single off Vargas in the sixth, but was caught stealing second later that inning before grounding into a double play in the ninth against left-handed closer Mike Minor. With four home runs among his 11 hits over the past eight games, Kinsler's closing out the season on a hot streak.
