Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler said he had a Platelet Rich Plasma injection a week after the season to seperate a ligament from the bone in his right ankle. Kinsler said the ankle has been bothering him for two seasons, ever since he rolled it during workouts in Surprise, Ariz, in March 2010. "I feel 100 percent and it's the first time I can say that in a long time," Kinsler said after talking with fans and signing autographs at Rangers FanFest on Saturday at the Arlington Convention Center. "It didn't bug me to the point where it affected how I felt running or moving laterally, I just didn't feel as powerful. Being able to feel that again is pretty cool. It's a good feeling." Kinsler learned to adapt to that lack of power and it didn't keep him from stealing 30 bases, to go along with 32 home runs and 77 RBIs in 155 games, the most he's played in his career.
