Kinsler made his debut for Texas in 2006 and was the starting second baseman for the next eight years. After that he went through the Detroit Tigers, Los Angeles Angels, Boston Red Sox and San Diego Padres.
He recorded a career batting average of 0.269, 257 homers, 909 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.777, and in particular, he hit 1,999 hits, one short of 2,000 hits. Kinsler is a four-time All-Star, two-time Gold Glove winner, and in 2018, he also harvested a championship ring wearing a Boston uniform.
After his retirement, Kinsler also took on the role of baseball operations and player development assistant at San Diego. He is said to be in charge of developing minor league players in Texas.토토사이트
