Indians | Jason Kipnis, Yan Gomes resting

Tue, 24 May 2016 14:27:27 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis and C Yan Gomes are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. 3B/OF Jose Ramirez is starting at second base and is hitting second, while C Chris Gimenez draws the start behind the plate and is batting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez has been solid for the Tribe this year while moving around multiple positions, but the matchup against the 9-0 Sale is one to avoid him in in daily formats. Gimenez is a no-brainer to avoid, as well. The backup catcher has a slash line of .182/.217/.318 with one home run and one RBI in 22 at-bats.

Indians | Two Indians sitting out

Mon, 23 May 2016 17:39:40 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Mike Napoli and C Yan Gomes are not in the starting lineup for the second game of a doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox Monday, May 23. 1B Carlos Santana will start at first base, while 2B Jason Kipnis will serve as the designated hitter. C Chris Gimenez will start at catcher and is batting eighth. 2B Michael Martinez will start at second base and is batting ninth against White Sox SP Erik Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Gimenez has only one hit in his last at-bats and should be avoided in most leagues. Martinez went 2-for-4 in the first game of the doubleheader but is still not a great starting candidate.

Indians | Jason Kipnis collects five hits

Wed, 11 May 2016 17:18:23 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis went 5-for-7 with an RBI in the game against the Houston Astros Wednesday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: All of Kipnis' hits were singles and he raised his average from .263 to .288 with the performance. He should continue to be viewed as a solid option at the keystone position, although he is not the 20-20 threat he once was.

Indians | Jason Kipnis streaking

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 21:49:27 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis extended his hitting streak to eight games, going 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk in a 4-3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis has two home runs, five RBI and five runs scored during the streak, and while he isn't the 20-20 threat he used to be, he is still a starting-caliber second baseman in all formats.

Indians | Jason Kipnis bangs out three hits

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 20:18:57 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis went 3-for-5 with two doubles, two runs scored and an RBI in a 6-5 loss to the New York Mets Friday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis has picked it up the last three games, delivering a homer, two doubles, two RBI, three runs scored, two walks and two stolen bases. He has 20-20 upside, and you should feel confident using Kipnis as your starting second baseman in all mixed formats.

Indians | Francisco Lindor leads off, Kipnis third

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 11:35:08 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Francisco Lindor bumped up to the leadoff spot Wednesday, April 6, with 2B Jason Kipnis sliding to the three-hole against a right-hander. Kipnis hit second, with Lindor in the three-hole, against a lefty to open the season.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis receives the obvious bump in the third spot, and he's a daily consideration in DFS. Lindor's value adjusts from a run-producing spot to a spark plug, and he's a daily consideration at his position as well.

Indians | Jason Kipnis to remain leadoff hitter?

Wed, 17 Feb 2016 11:28:37 -0800

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis, SS Francisco Lindor and OF Rajai Davis are reportedly the frontrunners to bat leadoff this season. Kipnis batted .311 and scored 81 runs in 492 at-bats out of the top spot but may be needed to bat in the middle of the order with OF Michael Brantley (shoulder) scheduled to open the season on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Lindor and Davis both offer prototypical speed out of the leadoff spot, but neither offers quite as much production as Kipnis. Lindor, who took most of his swings out of the two-hole as a rookie last year, will move up a spot in all likelihood while Kipnis fills in for Brantley at No. 3. Kipnis is one of the best options at second base regardless of where he bats, although a temporary move to the three-spot could boost his RBI totals a bit.

Indians | Jason Kipnis could start in three-hole

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 13:31:07 -0800

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis could bat third to start the season with OF Michael Brantley (shoulder) projected to miss approximately the first month of the season.

Fantasy Tip: For the first month of the season, should Kipnis hit third, he projects to see more RBI opportunities and likely score fewer runs. However, it isn't a huge difference maker for his fantasy value. Kipnis bounced back with an All-Star season in 2015, and he checks out as a high-end option at the keystone and is worth a look in the early middle rounds of drafts entering 2016. Brantley is a speculative grab and stash outside the top-100 picks.

Indians | Jason Kipnis not an OF option

Mon, 07 Dec 2015 19:11:39 -0800

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis played outfield in college and early in his career in the minor leagues. However, even with the team light in the outfield with OF Michael Brantley (shoulder) recovering from surgery, general manager Chris Antonetti said Kipnis is not considered as an option to help out in the outfield, even if just temporary.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis fantasy owners would love the extra eligibility and flexibility, but it doesn't appear to be something you'll need to worry about.

Indians | Jason Kipnis not starting Sunday

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 12:07:42 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello Sunday, Oct. 4. INF Jose Ramirez will bat fifth and play second base.

Fantasy Tip: After a dismal first half, Ramirez ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is batting .259 with five home runs and 19 RBIs in 158 at-bats since the All-Star break. He could be worth considering as a FantasyScore value play.
