No penalty expected for Ian Kinsler

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler's one-game suspension is expected to be lifted, a source said on Wednesday.

When asked about the suspension, Kinsler said it's possible it will be dismissed.

"I should find out in a few hours," he said Wednesday afternoon.

According to the Rangers, Major League Baseball says Kinsler's suspension in still in the appeals process.

MLB issued the suspension Tuesday because Kinsler returned to the field to celebrate Nelson Cruz's walk-off home run Friday after he'd been ejected from the game for arguing balls and strikes.

Kinsler appealed the suspension and was able to play in the Rangers' 11-4 win over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night.
