Line of the Day: Ian Kinsler: July 25th, 2011

Ian Kinsler went 4-for-6 with a double, home run and four RBI in the Texas Rangers 20-6 rout of the Minnesota Twins. The Rangers became the first team to scored 20 runs in a game this season. (video recap)

Line: 6 AB | 2 R | 4 H | 4 RBI; 2B | HR | BB

My fantasy perspective: Kinsler is the fourth-ranked fantasy baseball second baseman with his .255/72/16/41/19 line and the 33rd-ranked player, overall. His ADP was 43.8, so he's actually performing better than expected so far this season.

His .255 average may be down from his career .277 average but his OBP (.361) and SLG (.460) are right in line with his career numbers. He's also on pace for 25 HR and 30 SB which would be right in line with the 24 HR and 28 SB he averages per 162 games played.

Question: Do Kinsler's numbers get overlooked when discussing elite fantasy second basemen?
