Ian Kinsler has been put on the disabled list with an intercostal strain and prospect Jurickson Profar has been recalled from Round Rock to take his roster spot.

Profar is the consensus top prospect in baseball and was hitting .278 / .370 / .438 with 4 home runs, including a 2 home run game yesterday.

Leury Garcia will start at 2B tonight per the beat writers with Profar on the bench for his first game.
