Ian Kinsler: Could Move To First Base Next Season

Rotowire.com
Update: Kinsler could move to first base next season, MLB.com reports.

Recommendation: The Rangers are eager to make room for top prospect Jurickson Profar at second base, and with the team reluctant to trade Elvis Andrus, Kinsler would have to move to first base to allow all three players to receive everyday playing time. While an official move to first base is something that would have be sorted out in spring training, it would give Kinsler multi-position eligibility and a likely advantage over many first baseman due to his ability to steal bases. Incumbent first baseman Mitch Moreland would be the odd man out in such a scenario, as he'd be relegated to DH duty or a bench role.
