Jason Kipnis merely OK, but that's better than last April
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

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.

Jason Kipnis ejected after strikeout
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis was ejected from Thursday's game following a strikeout.

Kipnis had a rough day at the plate, grounding into a double play during his first at-bat and striking out his second time up. Following the strikeout, Kipnis may have said something while walking away from the umpire. The ump then ejected Kipnis from the game. Mike Aviles came into the game to replace Kipnis.

Jason Kipnis provides all the offense in low-scoring win
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Indians got all the offense they needed from one swing of the bat from second baseman Jason Kipnis during a 2-0 win in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Padres.

The game was scoreless until Kipnis connected for a two-run homer off of Padres starting pitcher Eric Stults with one out in the sixth inning. It was Kipnis' first home run and only hit in four at-bats.

Kipnis is batting just .222 (6 for 27) through eight games. But he is slugging .407 thanks to the one home run and two doubles. Kipnis also has three stolen bases, five runs, seven walks and six strikeouts.

Jason Kipnis signs six-year extension with Indians
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis has agreed to a six-year, $52.5 million extension with the club Friday, according to the Northeast Ohio Media Group. 

The deal contains a club option for a seventh year. The club will hold a press conference early Friday to officially announce the deal. Kipnis, 27, had been working on an extension with the club throughout the offseason, but set opening day as a deadline. The two sides went slightly over that date, but were still willing to get a deal done. The contract pays Kipnis $500,000 more than Matt Carpenter, who was the most recent second baseman to sign a long-term extension.

Kipnis hit .284/.366/.452 in 564 at-bats last year.
