|(7/12/15) Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis gets a break from the field on Sunday. Kipnis will lead off and play designated hitter for Sunday's game.
Kipnis had started the last 20 games at second base and has started 85 of the team's 87 games there this season. The only other time he DHed this season was June 20.
Jose Ramirez, called up from Triple-A on Saturday, gets his first start of the season at second base.

|(7/11/15) The Indians placed infielder Mike Aviles on the MLB Family Medical Emergency list, the team announced on Saturday.

Indians' Chisenhall, Ramirez looking to expand in Triple-A
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/9/15) Indians infielders Lonnie Chisenhall and Jose Ramirez are trying to expand their game while in Triple-A Columbus, per Cleveland.com.
Chisenhall played right field on Wednesday, while Ramirez is going to venture into the outfield as well.
"Lonnie actually wanted to do that," manager Terry Francona said, per Cleveland.com. "That was his idea. He wants to play some first base and the outfield to make himself more valuable. I don't want to speak for him, but I think he said playing third base was weighing on him a little bit.
"That's a unique skill set. A guy who can play the corner outfield, who can play first and third, that's a pretty unique skill set. I think we're going to start moving Jose Ramirez around, too, maybe even to the outfield."
Both Chisenhall and Ramirez were sent down to the minors back in June.
Report: Indians option Jose Ramirez to Triple-A
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(6/7/15) The Indians have optioned shortstop Jose Ramirez to Triple-A Columbus, Yahoo! Sports reports.
Ramirez has started just one of the last five games at shortstop after serving as the team's starter at the position for much of the season. He has hit just .180/.247/.240 with one home run, eight RBI and eight stolen bases in 150 at-bats.
Mike Aviles made his 14th start at shortstop on Sunday and is likely the short-term answer at the position. However, the team could promote top prospect Francisco Lindor to the majors as well. Lindor has hit .269/.342/.393 with two home runs, 21 RBI and eight stolen bases in 201 at-bats with Columbus.
|2014 summary: Jose Ramirez was off virtually everyone's radar when he was called up from Triple-A Columbus in late July. A few days later, it was he -- and not highly-ranked prospect Francisco Lindor -- who replaced shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera when the Indians' long-time shortstop was dealt to the Nationals. While everyone was waiting for Lindor's arrival, Ramirez was quietly stealing bases (19 in 60 games) and not striking out (30 times in 245 times) at Columbus. Ramirez swiped another 10 bases during his time in Cleveland, though his contact skills didn't translate into the .302 batting average he established at Triple-A. However, if you subtract out the 2 for 25 stretch Ramirez had during a brief May callup, he batted .283 for the Indians.|
Playing time status: Ramirez is expected to be the Indians' opening day shortstop, but it should be just a matter of time before he is replaced by Lindor. That doesn't mean Ramirez won't remain as a regular in the Indians' lineup, but it may require a shift to second base.
2015 outlook: If Ramirez could be assured of steady work throughout the season, he'd be a potential top 15 shortstop, but the uncertainty around his role long-term makes him risky to project as such. Ramirez can go undrafted in standard Head-to-Head leagues, but his stolen base potential alone makes him worth a late-round pick in 12-team mixed Rotisserie leagues.
