Indians | Jason Kipnis serving as DH

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 12:24:29 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis will bat leadoff and serve as the designated hitter against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards Saturday, Aug. 29. INF Jose Ramirez will play second base and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Over the past week, Kipnis ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is 7-for-21 with a home run and six RBIs. Ramirez ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is only batting .200 through 70 games this season and is not a viable FantasyScore option.

Indians | Jason Kipnis absolutely rakes at home

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 20:39:07 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis went 2-for-5 with a double, home run and three RBIs Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) leads the American League with a .325 average, helped in large part by his production at home. He is hitting a robust .383 with 23 doubles, four triples and five home runs while driving in 28 runs at Progressive Field. He entered the game with a home OPS of 1.062. Needless to say, he is a great mid-level start when he is playing at home.

Indians | Jason Kipnis sitting out

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 07:35:08 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Sunday, Aug. 23. SS Mike Aviles will start at second base and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) should return to the starting lineup in the next game or two. Aviles ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has seven hits and four RBI in his last eight games, but owners on FantasyScore may be able to find better options to use.

Indians | Jason Kipnis back in leadoff spot

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 14:38:53 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis is back in the leadoff spot against Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly Wednesday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly has been up and down this year for the BoSox and Kipnis ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) was excelling in the leadoff spot for the Tribe before his injury. Can he pick up where he left off? It's worth finding out on FantasyScore and all other setups immediately.

Indians | Jason Kipnis to play Wednesday

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 14:20:55 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis (shoulder) is likely to be back in the starting lineup at second base Wednesday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis was activated from the DL Tuesday, but Jose Ramirez ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) remains at the keystone for one more day. Ramirez's short-term value in AL-only leagues is about to expire. He's also a low-end play on FantasyScore, even while hitting leadoff. Get Kipnis back in your starting lineups everywhere tomorrow.

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 13:32:56 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis (shoulder) said his right shoulder feels fine, and he will not need surgery on it at the end of the season.

Fantasy Tip: That's great news for Kipnis' ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) outlook heading into next season. Now that he's back from the DL, get him back into your starting lineups in all formats immediately.

Indians | Jason Kipnis activated

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 13:25:49 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis (shoulder) was activated from the disabled list Tuesday, Aug. 18, and 3B Chris Johnson (hand) was placed on the DL in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Get Kipnis ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) back into lineups in all formats immediately. He's been a force to be reckoned with offensively this season. Johnson ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) was hitting well since being traded to Cleveland and was playing every day. He is worth hanging onto if you have the room in deep mixed formats.

Indians | Jason Kipnis will be activated soon

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 14:04:45 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis (shoulder) will be activated from the disabled list by Wednesday, Aug. 19, at the latest, according to manager Terry Francona.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners will be happy to return Kipnis ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) to their lineups. There might be a brief re-adjustment period to shake off some rust, but look for him to finish his season strong. Over 468 plate appearances this season, Kipnis boasts an impressive .326/.401/.477 slash line.

Indians | No rehab for Jason Kipnis

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 19:22:15 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis (shoulder) will not go on a rehab assignment and could be activated from the disabled list Monday, Aug. 17, according to manager Terry Francona.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has been enjoying an incredible year, but he hasn't played since Aug. 1, so you may want to give him a game or two to shake off the rust before using him at FantasyScore.

Indians | Jason Kipnis remains on track

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 15:31:07 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis (shoulder) played catch Friday, Aug. 14, and remains on track to be activated from the disabled list early next week during the series against the Boston Red Sox.

Fantasy Tip: The series kicks off Monday, Aug. 17, so seasonal owners will want to be ready to return Kipnis to their lineups upon his activation. He'll carry some risk at FantasyScore until he proves his health in a game or two, but should pick up where he left off before long. For the season, Kipnis boasts a .326/.401/.477 slash line.
