Description: Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler is 8-for-21 (.381) with four extra base hits against Angels left-hander C.J. Wilson, but has just one hit in his last 21 at-bats and may not be able to take advantage of the favorable matchup.
Insight: Kinsler is not playing like the guy we drafted. He's gone 47 games without hitting a home run after averaging 20 homers over the past four seasons. While he has a solid .280 batting average and 21 RBI, we bought into the idea that he was a power-hitting second baseman and we aren't seeing it.
