    Second baseman Ian Kinsler is back in the Texas Rangers clubhouse, though his return to the lineup will have to wait another day.

    Kinsler was back with the team Thursday after completing a three-day rehabilitation assignment at Double-A Frisco without any setbacks. Kinsler has been on the disabled list all season after sustaining a high right ankle sprain during spring training.

    Even though Kinsler tried to persuade manager Ron Washington to let him make his season debut in the homestand finale Thursday against the Chicago White Sox, the Rangers are sticking with their plan. Kinsler will be activated Friday before the team plays in Seattle and be in the lineup then.
