Jason Kipnis went 1-for-4 with a double and two strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

Kipnis' double off Wade Davis in the ninth inning was just the second hit of the game for the Tribe. It would be their only extra-base knock in the contest. After a troubled, injury-plagued 2014, he's managed to stay (mostly) healthy in slashing to a .302/.373/.449 batting line with nine homers, 51 RBI and 11 steals as the current campaign nears its end.

Jason Kipnis is back at second base Tuesday against the Royals.

Kipnis has been bothered by some neck stiffness recently, so he served as the DH on Monday. He led off with a homer, so fantasy owners will have to hope that this is the start of a strong finish. Carlos Santana is back at the DH spot on Tuesday while Chris Johnson will start at first base.

Jason Kipnis went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Monday's 8-3 victory over the Royals.

Kipnis answered Alex Gordon's leadoff home run in the top of the first with a leadoff home run in the bottom half of the frame. The second baseman has had a great season, batting .301/.374/.449 with eight home runs, 47 RBI, and 78 runs scored.

Jason Kipnis is out of the Indians' starting lineup on Monday afternoon versus the White Sox.

Jason Kipnis went 1-for-4 with an RBI single and two strikeouts in Friday's win over the Angels.

Kipnis' RBI single was part of a three-run seventh inning by the Indians. He's up to 143 hits for the season after logging just 120 during an injury-plagued 2014. Now that he's healthy, his numbers are stellar across the board and include a .324/.399/.478 triple-slash, seven homers, 45 RBI, 73 runs scored and 11 steals.

Jason Kipnis hit a two-run double and a solo home run in five trips to the plate as the Indians took down the Brewers on Wednesday.

Kipnis gave the Indians a 3-1 lead with a two-run double in the second inning. Three runs scored on the hit, but one was allowed in on a fielding error, so Kipnis was credited with only two RBI. The All-Star second baseman then made it a 6-2 game in the eighth inning with a solo shot off of reliever Will Smith. Kipnis has back-to-back multi-hit games, boosting his batting line to .325/.400/.481 with seven home runs, 44 RBI, and 72 runs scored.

Jason Kipnis went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and three runs scored in a win over the Brewers on Tuesday.

Kipnis had an RBI double in the second before adding a run-scoring single in the fifth. The big game was needed for the 28-year-old, who had just five hits in his previous 23 at-bats since returning from the disabled list. Kipnis is hitting .324/.400/.472 with 41 RBI and 71 runs scored overall.

Indians activated 2B Jason Kipnis from the 15-day disabled list.

Kipnis was out for 16 days with inflammation in his right shoulder. The second baseman returns Tuesday to a .326/.401/.477 season slash line and should remain a hugely productive fantasy commodity down the stretch.
Aug 18 - 4:26 PM

Indians manager Terry Francona said Monday that Jason Kipnis (shoulder) will be activated from the disabled list no later than Wednesday.

He could be back on Tuesday, depending on whether Michael Brantley (shoulder) needs another day in the designated hitter spot. Kipnis has missed the last two weeks of action with a sore right shoulder but has been throwing the last few days without any issues.

Jason Kipnis (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.

He had been slated to return on Monday, but with Michael Brantley (shoulder) likely limited to designated hitter duties that day, the Indians will push Kipnis back a day. The second baseman has missed the last two weeks of action with a sore right shoulder but has been throwing the last few days without any issues.
Aug 16 - 12:58 PM

Jason Kipnis (shoulder) completed about 50 throws from 60 to 75 feet on Thursday.

It's the first time he's done any throwing since landing on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation. Kipnis will throw again on Friday and Saturday. "It felt really good," Kipnis said. "I haven't thrown pain-free like that in a long time." The second baseman will join the Indians this weekend in Minnesota and could be activated from the disabled list on Monday, the first day he's eligible. "I haven't talked to them, so I don't know what the plan is," Kipnis said, "but it can't be much longer than that."
Aug 14 - 9:37 AM

Indians manager Terry Francona said Tuesday that Jason Kipnis (shoulder) could be ready to return to the active roster early next week in Boston.

Kipnis is beginning to make progress in his recovery from right shoulder inflammation after a week-long shutdown period. The second baseman has been on the shelf since August 2. Jose Ramirez is doing the majority of the filling in at the keystone for Cleveland.
