Kinsler (concussion) is leading off and manning second base Friday against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

He cleared the concussion protocol prior to Thursday's doubleheader, but needed to remain symptom-free for 24 hours, which he apparently achieved. Kinsler has re-established himself as one of the top fantasy options at the keystone this season. He is one of two second basemen (Brian Dozier being the other) with over 25 homers, over 100 runs and double-digit steals on the season.

While Kinsler said he is free of concussion symptoms Thursday morning, he needs to remain symptom-free for 24 hours, so he will not be able to play in either game of the doubleheader against the Twins, MLB.com's Jason Beck reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kinsler ran, played catch, fielded grounders and felt fine Thursday, but the concussion protocol dictates he needs to be symptom-free for 24 hours, so he will be unavailable for the doubleheader. It sounds like he is poised to return Friday against the Royals, however.

Kinsler said Thursday that he is free of concussion symptoms, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Tigers have not yet announced their lineup for Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader, but it sounds like Kinsler could be available, even if he's not in the lineup for the matinee.

Kinsler (concussion) took part in fielding drills Thursday morning, MLive's Evan Woodbery reports.

EDGE Analysis

He did some light jogging in the outfield and took grounders at second base. Woodbery speculates that if Kinsler were to take batting practice he would do so indoors, so it is unclear if he was able to take part in full baseball activities. If he successfully makes it through the concussion protocol he could be in the lineup for one or both of the games against the Twins as part of Thursday's doubleheader.

EDGE Analysis

Kinsler took a pitch to the helmet in Sunday's game against the Indians and was later diagnosed with a concussion. After admitting Tuesday that he still felt "a little foggy," Kinsler remains in the league's concussion protocol, and he'll miss at least one more game.

Kinsler (concussion) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Twins, MLive's Evan Woodbery reports.

EDGE Analysis

He was examined after Sunday's game for a possible concussion after taking a 93 mph fastball from Trevor Bauer off his helmet. The team has not made further comments about whether or not Kinsler has officially been diagnosed with a concussion, but his absence from Tuesday's lineup after Monday's off day suggests he's still dealing with symptoms. Andrew Romine is starting at second base and hitting ninth Tuesday.

Kinsler was examined after Sunday's game for a possible concussion, reports The Detroit News. He had taken a 93 mph fastball from Cleveland starter Trevor Bauer off the top of his helmet earlier in the game.

EDGE Analysis

Kinsler had been checked right after the beaning and was able to easily get through the protocol. But he reportedly got foggy as time progressed and after the game, he was a little dizzy and started to get a headache. Kinsler was not made available to the media and manager Brad Ausmus wasn't certain if the middle infielder would fly with the team to Minnesota. There were no updates on health on Monday.
