Downs also received a non-roster invite to MLB camp.
Kipnis, who was in and out of the lineup for Cleveland in 2014 with a hamstring injury, hit .240 last year with six home runs and 41 RBI. He has spent his four-year career in Cleveland, managing a .262 career average.
General manager Chris Antonetti said Floyd will be part of the starting rotation. Floyd's 2014 season with the Braves ended in late June when he underwent surgery for a fractured elbow. Antonetti said Tuesday the fracture in Floyd's elbow has healed and the team expects him to be ready for full activity in spring training.
Floyd was limited to nine starts in 2014 after missing most of the season in 2013 due to Tommy John surgery. He went 2-2 with a 2.65 ERA last season. He is 72-72 with a 4.40 ERA in 11 MLB seasons.
