"There's no reason to," Kinsler said. "He's a grown man. He's intelligent enough and has had enough conversations with me to understand where I stand, and that's really it."
Josh Hamilton, a former teammate of Kinsler's who left the Rangers to join the Los Angeles Angels prior to the 2013 season, also got in trouble with a comment about his former team, saying Arlington wasn't "a baseball town."
"At least I won't be the only villain in Texas now," the outfielder told the Orange County Register.
Hamilton also sent a tweet to his former teammate.
Not any fun being in the Texas doghouse, is it @IKinsler3?- Josh Hamilton (@thejoshhamilton) March 4, 2014
