Jason Kipnis done in 2014 with hamstring issue
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/27/14) 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

|(9/24/14) 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.
Jason Kipnis gets another start

|(9/23/14) 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"

|(9/22/14) One day after serving as the Indians' designated hitter, Jason Kipnis was left out of the Indians' starting lineup for Monday's game at the Royals. 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.

Ranking second basemen for 2015
Ranking the second basemen for the 2015 season, and our Scott White says the position just isn't as deep as it was.
|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.
