Jason Kipnis starting to rack up multi-hit games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis collected three hits, including his 19th double, and three runs during a 4-1 win Sunday against the Yankees. 

Sunday was Kipnis' fifth multi-hit game in his last 11 appearances. He is batting .326 with one home run, four doubles, two RBI and 11 runs in that span.


Jason Kipnis slugs rare home run in Thursday defeat


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The oblique injury that Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis has blamed for robbing him of his power did not rob him of his power Thursday night. He produced only his second game with a home run since April 21.

Kipnis blasted off with a two-run job in the third inning and added a double in a loss to Seattle. He sweetened his stat line to .243/.322/.356 in the process, but those numbers are significantly off what he achieved in 2013.


Jason Kipnis blames oblique injury for poor power numbers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis admitted during a recent series in Minnesota the right oblique strain that put him on the disabled list in late April has limited his swing and robbed him of his power, according to The Plain Dealer.

Manager Terry Francona weighed in on the matter prior to Sunday's game at Kansas City. Kipnis has just two home runs and is slugging .326 in his last 59 games.

"I don't think he's in pain," Francona said. "I do think there are balls that he usually gets to, hitting wise, and he's fouled them off or swinging through them. I think he's frustrated, which I totally understand.

"But with good players, they play. I'm not sure you can always be 100 percent or we'd never have a team. From where I sit, you appreciate he's giving everything he has. That's why I'm quick to defend guys because more guys are banged up (than people realize)."


Jason Kipnis adds a pinch of power with multi-HR game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2014) Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis added a pinch of power Friday night against the Tigers in Detroit, launching a pair of homers in his team's 9-3 win.

He finished 2 for 5 with two runs scored and four RBI.It was Kipnis' second career multi-home run game. The other came on May 26, 2012, at White Sox. He is hitting .257 with five homers and 28 RBI in 268 at-bats.

Kipnis also continues to be mired in a power drought, as he has gone without a home run in 49 games. The last time he homered was April 21.

Kipnis has not been a very productive hitter in the second half in his career. He has a .252/.383/.715 slash line in his career after the All-Star break, as opposed to .279/.432/.788 in the first half.

(5/17/2014) Indians infielder Jason Kipnis was able to field grounders prior to Saturday's game, and manager Terry Francona told MLB.com he should be able to return to action with a rehab assignment soon.

"I think like when we leave for Baltimore [May 22-25], he would possibly go out and play," Francona said. "I think that's a pretty good timeframe. We'll see. He's going to go out in the field in the next couple days. We've just kind of let his body dictate the pace and not just the calendar."

 Kipnis is recovering from an oblique injury that has kept him out since late April, and he seems to be ahead of schedule. At this point, it is not clear how much time he would need on a rehab assignment, however.

Jason Kipnis merely OK, but that's better than last April


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2014) Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis was batting .170 on April 24 of last season. So he's not complaining about his .244 mark throught that same date in 2014.

"I set the bar so low last April that it's kind of gravy here on out," he told MLB.com. "Even with my average not being that high. I'm having good at-bats, swinging at the right pitches, not chasing too many."

Kipnis has been inconsistent to start the year. He mixed in three multi-hit games with five hitless ones before slamming only a double in the Thursday defeat of Kansas City. But his .367 on-base percentage and .432 slugging percentage are on pace with the numbers he achieved in 2013.
