Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis (oblique) is on track to being lower-level baseball activities and dry swings sometime this weekend. He's still at least a few weeks away from returning.

The Cleveland Indians placed 2B Jason Kipnis (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list with a right oblique strain Friday, May 2, and recalled INF Jose X. Ramirez from Triple-A Columbus in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Look for some combination of Elliot Johnson and Mike Aviles to split time at the keystone with Kipnis sidelined. Johnson is a switch hitter, so it could be a straight platoon, with Johnson facing righties and Aviles starting against lefties. For what it's worth, Aviles is the more polished offensive weapon for those hunting in AL leagues.
