Player Notes
Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Jason Kipnis (shoulder) is expected to be sidelined for 2-3 weeks.

Advice: Kipnis tried to battle through a sore right shoulder for a few days, but the Indians finally placed him on the disabled list Monday. He doesn't have any structural damage, but it's an ailment that's bothered Kipnis off and on for a good chunk of the season. Mike Aviles is likely to receive the bulk of the playing time at second base while Kipnis is out.

Indians placed 2B Jason Kipnis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 2, with right shoulder inflammation.

Advice: Kipnis tried playing through the ailment for a few days, receiving starts in the designated hitter spot, but the club has decided it's best to go ahead and shut him down for a while. It's unclear at this point how long he might be sidelined. Jose Ramirez has taken his spot on the roster and should see some time at second base along with Mike Aviles while Kipnis is sidelined.

The Indians are considering placing Jason Kipnis (shoulder) on the disabled list.

Advice: Kipnis is not playing Sunday after being limited to designated hitter duty of late because of soreness in his right shoulder. The results of an MRI he had Sunday haven't been revealed, but it's evidently bad enough that the club thinks the second baseman could need at least a couple weeks off. Manager Terry Francona said he would talk things over with the medical staff and general manager Chris Antonetti before a decision is made.

Jason Kipnis will DH Saturday against the Athletics because of a sore right shoulder.

Advice: Kipnis was also the DH for Friday's game. The injury doesn't sound serious but it's something to keep an eye on. Utility man Mike Aviles is starting at second base for the Tribe on Saturday.

Jason Kipnis went 3-for-4 with a double, but the Indians dropped Tuesday's contest to the Royals.

Advice: Kipnis couldn't be brought around to score as the Indians' 2-5 hitters combined to go 2-for-14. The Indians have dropped six games in a row, averaging 1.7 runs per game. But it's not the fault of Kipnis, who has an outstanding .330/.405/.485 triple-slash line on the year.

Jason Kipnis (neck) went 0-for-4 with a strikeout Sunday in his return to the Indians' lineup.

Advice: Kipnis was held out of action on Saturday due to some mild stiffness in his neck. It obviously isn't a big deal. The second baseman is slashing .321/.397/.476 in what has otherwise been a frustrating year for Cleveland.

Mon, Jul 27 Rotoworld
Jason Kipnis is out of the Indians' starting lineup on Saturday night because of a stiff neck.

Advice: One day off should do the trick for Kipnis. Mike Aviles will start at second base and bat leadoff as the Indians do battle with White Sox left-hander Chris Sale.
