Latest Update Jason Kipnis went 3-for-5 with a double, three RBI and a stolen base in the Indians victory over the Yankees on Sunday. Sun Aug, 10, 04:30 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 been one of fantasy's bigger disappointments, as he's on pace for the worst season of his young career. He could be heating up, however, as he has multi-hit efforts in four of his last seven games.Analyst: Spencer Silva
Having started every game since May 31 and a recent five-game 2-for-21 slump, this seemed like a good time for Terry Francona to give his second baseman a much-needed rest. Jose Ramirez will work a the keystone Sunday.Analyst: Howard Bender
Kipnis went 5-for-15 in the four game weekend series in Detroit, hitting two homers in the opening game on Friday night, and driving in six runs while scoring three over the course of the series.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
It looks like it could be a take of two halves for Kipnis yet again, except this time it's a dominant second half instead of a first. Chalk up the power outage to the oblique injury early on as the Indians' second baseman put it all behind him with a strong performance to open the second half. He won't reach the 20-20 mark we were all hoping for, but a strong second half could certainly salvage what has seemingly been a lost season for the third-year pro. This game may have just ruined your chance to buy low on him, so hopefully you acted quickly before.Analyst: Howard Bender
