Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis (oblique) is likely to be limited by an oblique injury for the rest of the season. Kipnis has adjusted his swing to adhere to the right oblique strain he suffered in April. "I'd use the word adjustment," Kipnis said. "As far as the oblique goes, it's going to be there all year. It's not going to go away until the offseason. What I can do is find a swing that works for me. I thought we may have found something coming out of Detroit. It was a step in the right direction and we're going to keep making adjustments day to day and pitch to pitch and see how it goes."
Fantasy Tip: Kipnis isn't hitting for much power and likely isn't going to the rest of the season. However, he was 5-for-15 with two homers and six RBIs in the recent series with Detroit. He's still worth owning in all formats, but he may be a player you sit during cold spells.
