Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler spoke out among a variety of topics on Sunday to mlb.com:

On outfielder Josh Hamilton, recovering from alcohol and drug addictions, of whom Kinsler tried to prevent his relapse: "Josh is taking care of it. He's doing what he's always done. He's being open, up front and honest about it. It's not my place to talk about it. I know I was there for a certain part of the night. ... I've gotten over it. I'm focused on this season and baseball. I support Josh and will continue to support him. All his teammates and coaches will be there for him. Josh took care of it and said what he needed to say. People can say what they want to say. That's just outside influences driving something that's really not there."
