Latest Update Jason Kipnis (hamstring) will not play again this season. Sat Sep, 27, 04:04 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 disappointed his owners this season, with a triple slash line of .240/.310/.330 on the season. The 22 steals were nice but his power was absent and he did not justify where he was drafted by any stretch.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
Kipnis has started just two of his last eight games with a sore hamstring and it looks like it's still nagging him. The Indians have no need to rush him back, as they are already out of the playoff race. He should be back in the lineup by Friday, but he may see some more time off as the season closes out.

The disappointing season continues for Kipnis, who's hit only six home runs this season. Mike Aviles will get the start at second base for the Indians. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
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
