Kiner-Falefa not faking confidence as new Texas starting SS

Isiah Kiner-Falefa has always been a shortstop, but first had to fake his confidence as a catcher and a third baseman for the Texas Rangers.

After winning a Gold Glove as a third baseman last season, Kiner-Falefa feels like he can finally be himself, and the leader for a rebuilding team, as their starting shortstop.

"Third base isn't who I am. It's what I did," Kiner-Falefa said. "I'm shortstop. I'm an elite shortstop, and I'm ready to prove it. But I understood that for me to get this opportunity, I had to be a really good third baseman. And that's just one of the things I did. I had to be a catcher. ... And now I can be myself and do what I want to do, not what everybody else wants me to do."
