Indians' Jason Kipnis says oblique impacted him mentally
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis said last year's oblique injury impacted him more than just physically, according to MLB.com.

"I had a mental block on it," Kipnis explained. "Even in my dreams of being at the plate, I was still rolling over my pitches. My oblique was still cutting off my swing." The injury limited Kipnis to 129 games, and caused his slash line to drop to a disappointing .240/.310/.330 over 500 at-bats. 

While the issue certainly played a role in his struggles last season, Kipnis doesn't expect that to continue in 2015. "Finally, once I started swinging again, you start to realize it's good," he said. "It's full-go now and I don't feel it at all."

Indians aren't expecting Kipnis to be too far behind at start of camp
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Indians general manager Chris Antonetti told MLB Network Radio on Thursday second baseman Jason Kipnis might be just a day or two behind when spring training begins. Kipnis had surgery in December to repair a damaged tendon in his finger.

"He had his pin removed," Antonetti said. "His lower body conditioning has not been restricted, and he'll start his hitting progression in February."

Indians manager Terry Francona also gave a positive update on Kipnis earlier this week.

"He looked good. His spirits are good and he looks good," Francona said, per MLB.com. "It's his finger. In a perfect world, that doesn't happen, but that's not going to get in the way."
