    Indians 2B Jason Kipnis records two hits in loss to Royals

    Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis went 2 for 5 with an RBI in an 8-4 loss to the Royals on Thursday. Kipnis got his average back up to .300 with the performance and he may be getting hot again. Over his last four games, Kipnis has a homer, three RBI and two runs scored. The second baseman was one of the best stories in the first half and a dreadful second half may be due to the accumulation of injuries he has suffered throughout the season. He'll look to put in a strong last few weeks to make one final push at the playoffs for the surging tribe.

    Indians 2B Jason Kipnis collects one RBI in Wednesday's win

    Indians 2B Jason Kipnis went 1 for 4 with an RBI and a run scored in a 5-1 win over the Royals on Wednesday. Kipnis has been struggling mightily as his average has dropped nearly .30 points since the end of July. In September, Kipnis has just seven hits in 54 at-bats and the injuries really seem to be catching up to him at this point. With that said, he does have two RBI and two runs scored over his last three games, so he's still providing fantasy owners with counting stats.

    Simultaneous return of Kipnis, Brantley creates issue for Indians

    The desire of Terry Francona to use top hitters Michael Brantley and Jason Kipnis as designated hitters upon their return to the Indians has created a dilemma. Brantley and Kipnis, both of whom have been sidelined with shoulder issues, should be ready to roll Monday in Boston. But only one, of course, can DH. That could result in Kipnis being pushed back to Tuesday, per MLB.com. The former received a cortisone shot Friday and joined the club in Minneapolis on Saturday. Kipnis is eligible to come off the disabled list Monday. "I don't even know if we'd activate [Kipnis] or not [Monday]," Francona said. "It's going to be close. He certainly can be activated, but he's not ready to play second. ... I think Kip's kind of chomping at the bit, which I don't blame him."
