Fantasy rankings: Ian Kinsler No. 15 overall

ESPN.com fantasy guru Eric Karabell is coming out with his rankings (he's through No. 20 so far) and the first Texas Rangers player on the list is Ian Kinsler.

Here's what Karabell says about Kinsler:

15. Ian Kinsler, 2B, Texas Rangers: This guy plays second base! And say what you will about his durability, but he's gone 30-30 twice in the past three seasons. Yes, that .255 batting average is a drag, but surely a .243 batting average on balls in play was influential. Kinsler's career batting average is .275. This is an elite middle infielder with power, speed and no reason to cease boasting either skill.

Kinsler has that combination of solid production and doing it at a position of limited depth in fantasy. He can steal bases and has the ability to gain points by getting on base even when his average isn't as high as he'd like.

Which Ranger do you think will be next to appear in the fantasy rankings?
