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."

Indians' Jason Kipnis progressing from surgery on finger
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Indians manager Terry Francona said second baseman Jason Kipnis is progressing well from offseason surgery on his finger, reports MLB.com.

Kipnis underwent surgery in December to repair a damaged extensor tendon in his ring finger on his left hand and Francona said the injury has not hindered Kipnis.

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

The injury is not expected to hinder Kipnis’ Opening Day availability. In 2014, Kipnis hit .240 with six home runs and 41 RBI in 500 at-bats.

Jason Kipnis done in 2014 with hamstring issue
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis will not play Saturday or Sunday due to a hamstring injury, MLB.com reports.

Jason Kipnis benched again Wednesday against lefty
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

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.
