Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis (finger) is scheduled to play in the spring training game Saturday, March 7.
Fantasy Tip: Kipnis is coming back from offseason finger surgery and does not appear like he is having problems with the finger at this point. Kipnis will look for a bounce back season in 2015 and could be an option in the middle rounds of mixed league drafts.

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis bulked up before last season to add more power, but his swing appeared longer and slower, which could have led to his down season in 2014. Kipnis reported to camp leaner this season, and manager Terry Francona has instructed Kipnis to return to his natural swing and focus to hitting to all fields.
Fantasy Tip: Kipnis still carries a lot of name value, which likely will keep him from falling too far in traditional drafts. However, he's a clear bounce-back candidate for 2015. Look for him after the first handful of second basemen are off the board in the early middle rounds.
