Ian Michael Kinsler (born June 22, 1982, in Tucson, Arizona) is a Major League Baseball All-Star second baseman for the Texas Rangers.

Despite having been drafted in only the 17th round out of college, Kinsler has risen to become a two-time All Star, and a member of the Sporting News' 2009 list of the 50 greatest current players in baseball.

Kinsler had an historic game in April 2009, in which he had hits in all six of his at bats, and hit for the cycle. That season he became the second 30–30 player in Rangers' history. Through 2010, on defense he had the highest career range factor per game of all active major league second basemen. In 2011, he joined the 20–20 club for the third time in his career, one season shy of the major league record for a second baseman. He was also third in career stolen bases in Rangers history, and had the third-best career stolen-base percentage among active major leaguers with at least 120 attempts.
