Jason Kipnis done in 2014 with hamstring issue


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/27/2014) Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis will not play Saturday or Sunday due to a hamstring injury, MLB.com reports.

Kipnis has struggled in September, hitting just .194/.266/.250 in 72 at-bats. He ends the season with a .240/.310/.330 line along with six home runs, 41 RBI and 22 stolen bases in 500 at-bats.


Jason Kipnis benched again Wednesday against lefty


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Embattled Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis is out of the lineup Wednesday for the second straight matchup against a left-hander Wednesday despite his team still being alive in the playoff chase. The Indians are slated to face Royals southpaw Jason Vargas.

Kipnis, who was criticized recently for his profanity-laced battle with fans on social media, has been disappointing at the plate all season. His slugging percentage of .332 is more than 100 points under what he achieved in 2013 and his 41 RBI represents fewer than half of his total of a year ago. He is batting .208 against lefties this season and has not driven in a run since Aug. 29.

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/23/2014) Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis, who returned to the lineup after a two-game absence for a hamstring injury Sunday only to sit again Monday, was back in the lineup Tuesday against the Royals. He started at DH both games.

Not only is Kipnis at less than full capacity right now, but he's batting just .229 in 231 at-bats since the All-Star break.


Jason Kipnis not "at full speed"


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

Indians manager Terry Francona told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that he had Kipnis batting seventh on Sunday, "because I don't think he's going to be at full speed," as he continues to deal with a hamstring injury.

Kipnis has now started just twice in the last six games.

Indians optimistic Jason Kipnis returns this weekend


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Kipnis is day-to-day with a hamstring injury after exiting Thursday's game. However, he felt much better by the time he got to the ballpark Friday. "He showed up and actually exhibited pretty good strength," Francona said Friday before the game. "He's sore enough where we're not going to play him today. We would see about tomorrow, but I think we're more in that range, as opposed to four or five days. I think when you say 'day to day,' we really are legitimately day to day."

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)."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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.


Jason Kipnis steals two bases Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

(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.
