Rangers, Kinsler talk extension

Rangers, Kinsler talk extension
1:37PM ET


Ian Kinsler is signed through the 2012 season with a club option for 2013. He'll earn $7 million next season and the option is worth $10 million. It appears, however, that the two sides are mutually interested in an extension, reports Jeff Wilson of the Star-Telegram.

Kinsler isn't alone, as the Rangers have Josh Hamilton to tend to as well, and neither player is going to be cheap. Kinsler could command well over $10 million per season and he's just 29 so the Rangers may be looking at a deal for 6-8 years and $80-100 million.

Chase Utley inked a 7-year, $85 million deal in 2007 and was considered the best second baseman in the game at the time. Kinsler isn't far off, likely coming in right behind Robinson Cano for such honors.
