Angels' Ian Kinsler: Officially traded to Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinsler was traded to the Angels on Wednesday in exchange for minor leaguers Troy Montgomery and Wilkel Hernandez, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

The deal is finally official after briefly being held up due to undisclosed reasons. Kinsler, who batted just .236/.313/.412 in 139 games last season, should immediately takeover as the team's starting second baseman next season. Even in what can be considered a down year for the veteran, he swatted 22 homers and will inevitably be an upgrade at the keystone for an Angels team that saw their second basemen turn in a combined .207/.274/.318 line last season. He'll likely slide into the top portion of the team's batting order and should benefit from being surrounded by the likes of Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and Justin Upton.

Tigers' Ian Kinsler: Trade not yet complete
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Contrary to a previous report, a deal to send Kinsler to the Angels has not yet been completed, Buster Olney of ESPN reports.

It's unclear what's holding the deal up at this point, but Jon Heyman of FanRagSports.com reports there's still a good amount of optimism that Kinsler will eventually be dealt to the Angels.

Angels' Ian Kinsler: Dealt to Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinsler was traded to the Angels on Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

The Tigers' return hasn't been announced yet, but it appears Kinsler will be heading to the west coast as the Angels continue to build up their roster. The veteran second baseman is coming off a disappointing year by his standards. While he managed to swat 22 homers, he turned in an unimpressive .236 batting average to go along with his .725 OPS, both of which were the worst marks of his career. Kinsler will look to turn things around in what will be the final year of his contract, and he should benefit from playing with the big bats of Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and Justin Upton. Expect him to immediately step in as the team's everyday starter at the keystone next season.

Tigers' Ian Kinsler: Out of Sunday lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Ian Kinsler: Out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
