#2 Move Jose Iglesias up in the lineup and Ian Kinsler down
Ian Kinsler is clearly not going to come out of his slump on his own. Kinsler hit .262 in May after hitting .283 in April. He’s not getting on base for Miguel Cabrera and he is making Miggy a worse hitter because of it.
Iglesias is the most consistent hitter on the team and put him ahead of Miggy. Iggy will get on more consistently and then take the pressure off Kinsler until he can get out of his slump and make Miggy more productive.
