|Jason Kipnis ejected after strikeout |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(4/17/14) Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis was ejected from Thursday's game following a strikeout.
Kipnis had a rough day at the plate, grounding into a double play during his first at-bat and striking out his second time up. Following the strikeout, Kipnis may have said something while walking away from the umpire. The ump then ejected Kipnis from the game. Mike Aviles came into the game to replace Kipnis.
|Jason Kipnis provides all the offense in low-scoring win |

(4/9/14) The Indians got all the offense they needed from one swing of the bat from second baseman Jason Kipnis during a 2-0 win in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Padres.
The game was scoreless until Kipnis connected for a two-run homer off of Padres starting pitcher Eric Stults with one out in the sixth inning. It was Kipnis' first home run and only hit in four at-bats.
Kipnis is batting just .222 (6 for 27) through eight games. But he is slugging .407 thanks to the one home run and two doubles. Kipnis also has three stolen bases, five runs, seven walks and six strikeouts.

Kipnis slapped a bases-clearing double in the fourth inning. He also added a single and finished 2 for 5 with a run scored and three RBI. He has five hits in his first six at-bats to start the season.
|Jason Kipnis signs six-year extension with Indians |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(4/4/14) Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis has agreed to a six-year, $52.5 million extension with the club Friday, according to the Northeast Ohio Media Group.
The deal contains a club option for a seventh year. The club will hold a press conference early Friday to officially announce the deal. Kipnis, 27, had been working on an extension with the club throughout the offseason, but set opening day as a deadline. The two sides went slightly over that date, but were still willing to get a deal done. The contract pays Kipnis $500,000 more than Matt Carpenter, who was the most recent second baseman to sign a long-term extension.
Kipnis hit .284/.366/.452 in 564 at-bats last year.
|Indians set deadline for Jason Kipnis extension talks |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(3/21/14) The Indians continue to work on contract negotiations for a pair of franchise cornerstones, and talks with infielder Jason Kipnis seem to be going better than Justin Masterson's have. Though Masterson's extension talks have broken off, Kipnis' side is willing to talk with the Indians for at least the next 10 days.
According to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, Kipnis and the Indians have agreed to an opening day deadline for contract extension talks. If the sides cannot find a middle ground by then, talks will be put off until after the season.
"Our goal is always to have contract matters resolved before the start of the season to allow everyone's focus to remain on the field," Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said.
Possible financial terms of an extension, which would likely buy out multiple arbitration seasons if an agreement can be made, have not been leaked at this point. Kipnis is negotiating from a position of strength coming off his first All-Star game selection. He ended the season with a .284/.366/.452 line in 564 at-bats and finished 11th in MVP voting.
|Jason Kipnis emerged as one of the better second base options in 2012 when he finished among the top six at the position in both standard Rotisserie and Head-to-Head value. Much of Kipnis' value was based in his 31 stolen bases, but not having been much of a threat to steal in the minors, owners could have easily been skeptical heading into 2013. All Kipnis did last year was steal another 30 bases plus display more of the power he showcased as a prospect. With 36 doubles and a .284/.366/.452 slash line, Kipnis climbed the charts, ranking second at his position in standard Rotisserie value and fourth in Head-to-Head value. With back-to-back 30-steal seasons and growing power, Kipnis should once again rank among the top second basemen, joining Robinson Cano, Dustin Pedroia, Matt Carpenter and Ian Kinsler as members of the position's elite. He merits an early-round pick in all formats.
