    • Indians' Jason Kipnis: Squares up homer in win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Kipnis went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run during Thursday's win over Minnesota. After missing nearly a month with a hamstring injury, Kipnis has shown a little life at the dish with three extra-base hits through eight games since being activated from the disabled list. Multiple injuries have limited him to just 362 plate appearances, in what's been a disappointing fantasy campaign for the typical standout. Kipnis sports an underwhelming .232/.286/.415 slash line with just 12 homers, 35 RBI, five stolen bases and 40 runs.

    • Indians' Jason Kipnis: Not starting Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Kipnis is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mariners. Kipnis is still within a week of returning to action, so manager Terry Francona will hold him out with the Indians playing a day game following a night game. Tyler Naquin will get the start in center field Saturday afternoon.

    • Indians' Jason Kipnis: Day off Thursday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Kipnis is not in the lineup against the Angels on Thursday. Kipnis receives a breather following three straight starts, which marked the first time he's been on the field since Aug. 22, due to a hamstring strain. He started to shake the rust off at the plate during Wednesday's victory, going 2-for-4 with a double and one RBI, earning his first hit since coming off the DL.

    • Kipnis went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Wednesday's victory over the Angels. Kipnis picked up his first hits since returning from a hamstring injury Sept. 17. In his first two games back, the veteran had gone 0-for-5 with three strikeouts, so Wednesday's effort was an encouraging sign for owners. Manager Terry Francona plans to deploy Kipnis judiciously for now, so using the 30-year-old in weekly leagues carries some risk.

    • Kipnis will start in center field Tuesday for the second game in a row. With Jose Ramirez and Yandy Diaz both starting regularly in the infield, the Indians are taking a look at Kipnis in center field, and the experiment will continue Tuesday night. Kipnis will hit eighth against Angels starter Tyler Skaggs.
