ARLINGTON, Texas -- Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler has been placed on the disabled list as expected, among several moves the team made to finalize its 25-man roster.

Kinsler is recovering from a high right ankle sprain sustained during drills March 12. He hasn't played since and is expected to play a couple minor league games before being activated.

The Rangers also placed right-handers Tommy Hunter (left oblique strain) and Warner Madrigal (right forearm soreness) on the disabled list Sunday. The DL moves are retroactive to March 26.

All three players will be eligible to be activated Saturday.
