Latest Update Kipnis (hamstring) has not been ruled out for a start in Sunday's game in Minnesota Sat Sep, 20, 08:41 PM
Has a very good bat, complete with run-producing and home-run acumen. Runs fairly well and can steal a base, too. Is improving his defense at second base.
Flaws: : Needs to curb his strikeout totals a little bit in order to maximize his offensive output. Also needs to improve his batting versus left-handed pitching a little.
Kipnis has now missed three of the last four games with this hamstring strain. The Indians have an outside chance to sneak into the playoffs and would love to have him back for this final week, but they also don't want him to hurt himself worse. Should they win Saturday, sitting him Sunday is a definite possibility if it means getting him better to play the rest of the way. Consider him day-to-day for now and keep an eye on the lineups over the next few days.Analyst: Howard Bender
Kipnis had a shot of returning for Saturday, but the Indians will play it safe and give him his second day off in a row. There's a good chance he returns on Sunday, but if he doesn't, he'll likely be back by early next week.Analyst: Ben Diamond
This hasn't been the season fantasy owners had hoped for from Kipnis. He will rest on Friday night, but should be back in the lineup on Saturday and Sunday.Analyst: David Kerr
Kipnis has been limited to just 125 games this season due to injury and has hit just .242 with 61 runs, six home runs,41 RBI and 22 stolen bases over that span. Until more information is released as to the severity of the hamstring injury he should be considered day-to-day. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
