Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Jason Kipnis (shoulder) is expected to be sidelined for 2-3 weeks.

Kipnis tried to battle through a sore right shoulder for a few days, but the Indians finally placed him on the disabled list Monday. He doesn't have any structural damage, but it's an ailment that's bothered Kipnis off and on for a good chunk of the season. Mike Aviles is likely to receive the bulk of the playing time at second base while Kipnis is out.
Aug 3 - 7:46 PM

Chris Tillman (ankle) threw on flat ground from 90 feet Monday and is hoping to throw a bullpen session Wednesday.

Tillman had to be scratched from Monday's scheduled start due to a sprained right ankle, but he should be ready to rejoin the rotation later this week. The right-hander has been on a roll of late with a 1.09 ERA over his last six starts.
Aug 3 - 7:21 PM

Brian Johnson will be placed on Triple-A Pawtucket's disabled list due to left elbow tightness.

Johnson has been mentioned as a possibility to take Joe Kelly's spot in the rotation later this week, but obviously that won't happen now. He'll be re-evaluated later Monday or Tuesday before more is known about a potential timetable.
Aug 3 - 7:09 PM

Angels sent RHP Vinnie Pestano outright to Triple-A Columbus.

Pestano cleared waivers after being designated for assignment last week. The 30-year-old will represent relief depth in the minors.
Aug 3 - 7:06 PM

Indians recalled LHP Kyle Crockett from Triple-A Columbus.

Crockett has allowed two runs over six relief frames for the big club this season. He'll be used in the middle of games.
Aug 3 - 6:56 PM

Indians optioned LHP Michael Roth to Triple-A Columbus.

Roth was up for nearly a week but didn't make an appearance. Kyle Crockett has assumed his spot in the bullpen.
Aug 3 - 6:44 PM

Indians recalled INF Jose Ramirez from Triple-A Columbus.

Ramirez lost his shortstop job when Francisco Lindor was promoted but should see some time at second base while Jason Kipnis (shoulder) is out. He's hit only .176/.243/.235 in the majors this season.
Aug 3 - 6:36 PM

Indians placed 2B Jason Kipnis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 2, with right shoulder inflammation.

Kipnis tried playing through the ailment for a few days, receiving starts in the designated hitter spot, but the club has decided it's best to go ahead and shut him down for a while. It's unclear at this point how long he might be sidelined. Jose Ramirez has taken his spot on the roster and should see some time at second base along with Mike Aviles while Kipnis is sidelined.
