Indians' Mike Aviles in, Jose Ramirez out of lineup Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Indians infielder Mike Aviles is in the starting lineup Sunday, batting second and playing shortstop in his team's matchup with the Tigers.

Aviles is seeing just his second start of the season at shortstop, as most of his work has come in the oufield. He'll take the place of Jose Ramirez, who had started 10 straight games coming into Sunday.

The Indians have also made a change at the top of the lineup, moving second baseman Jason Kipnis to the leadoff spot. Kipnis and Aviles batted 1-2 in the team's last start against a southpaw, and lefty Kyle Lobstein is on the mound of the Tigers Sunday. Center fielder and typical leadoff man Michael Bourn will bat ninth.

The Indians are road favorites (-115) in Detroit Sunday.

Indians' Jason Kipnis continuing to struggle vs. lefties
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis hit just .208/.256/.244 in 168 at-bats against left-handed pitchers in 2014, and those struggles have carried over to 2015, as he's just 3 for 22 with one walk against southpaws in the first two weeks of the season.

Kipnis has done a fine job against righties, going 8 for 23 with one walk, one triple and three RBI, but his continued struggles against lefties has limited his overall offensive impact. The second baseman has hit just .244/.271/.289 in 45 at-bats with no home runs and one stolen base. The Indians are set to face lefty John Danks Monday.

Michael Brantley (back) returns to Indians' lineup, batting third
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Indians outfielder Michael Brantley returned to the starting lineup and is batting third, behind Jason Kipnis and ahead of Carlos Santana on Friday against the Tigers, according to the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

Brantley was sidelined the previous two games with lower back stiffness. He has been held without a hit in four at-bats this season.

Manager Terry Francona told reporters he may sprinkle in some off days for Brantley in the near future after the outfielder acknowledged he's still experiencing some lower back discomfort, per MLB.com.

"We'll keep an eye on him," Francona said. "If he needs a day off or something, we can certainly do that. But we don't ever want to turn something that could be a day or two into two weeks. But it's nice having him in the lineup, that's for sure."

Francona on Jason Kipnis' return: 'That'll really be a big boost for us'
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Indians manager Terry Francona told reporters he was impressed with second baseman Jason Kipnis' performance in his first Cactus League game since March 17, per MLB.com. Kipnis, who returned from back spasms, played five innings and finished 1 for 3 in a 13-2 defeat to Cincinnati.

"Well, he played yesterday (in the minors). He looks good," Francona said. "He's looked good swinging a bat. His ability, when he's healthy, he can impact a game so many ways. You saw he's athletic at second, he can steal a base, swing the bat. We're excited to watch him play healthy. That'll really be a big boost for us."

Indians 2B Jason Kipnis works on minor-league side Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis said Wednesday that his injured back is feeling better, and he saw five innings of work in a minor-league game, the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports.

"The plan is if he feels good tomorrow we'll play him, but we also reserve the right to give him another day," manager Terry Francona said. "But all signs are pointing to him moving around pretty good."

Back spasms have keep the second baseman sidelined for about a week. He's looking to bounce back after a down 2014 season.
