Player Notes
Jason Kipnis went 2-for-5 with a double and a two-run home run, but the Indians lost by one run to the Mariners on Thursday.

Advice: The Indians hung a three-spot on the Mariners in the third, but Kipnis answered back with a two-run homer in the bottom half of the inning, part of the Indians' own three-spot. Kipnis has been slumping at the plate and recently acknowledged that his right oblique muscle is still bothering him. He's slashing .243/.322/.356 with six home runs, 36 RBI, and 15 stolen bases.

Jason Kipnis acknowledged Monday that his right oblique muscle is still an issue and will likely linger for the rest of the season.

Advice: Kipnis missed about a month after straining his right oblique muscle in late April and he's still trying to make adjustments to his swing in order to get comfortable. "I wouldn't use the word progress, I'd use the word adjustment," said Kipnis. "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." Kipnis was named the American League Player of the week on Monday after he went 5-for-15 (.333) with two homers and six RBI during a four-game series against the Tigers, but those looking for a big second half might end up disappointed.
