— Player Notes
Advice: Kipnis has been sidelined by back spasms recently, but he's back and showed no signs of lingering issues Saturday. The second baseman hit a two-run shot off Brewers starter Wily Peralta in the third inning. He finished 1-for-3 in the game. Assuming he stays feeling alright, Kipnis should be just fine for Opening Day.7 hours ago Rotoworld
Advice: Kipnis singled in his first at-bat and also made a diving play in the field. Most importantly, he didn't have any issues with his back. The second baseman got a late start while working his way back from finger surgery and also missed over a week with back spasms, but he fully expects to be fine for Opening Day. "Some guys need 30 at-bats, some guys need 80 at-bats," said Kipnis. "If you're going good, you want to get going faster. I'm feeling good at the plate so I'm ready to start whenever we get there. If I get 20 or 30 more at-bats, that will be great for me."

Advice: "The plan is, if he feels good, we'll play him tomorrow," Indians manager Terry Francona said Wednesday. "But, you want to kind of reserve the right to [change your mind], if he needs a day. But, I think all signs are pointing that he was moving around pretty good." Kipnis played in a minor league game Wednesday and came out of it feeling good. He's been sidelined for over a week with back spasms but should still be good to go for Opening Day.

Advice: Kipnis felt good a day after Monday's session and could return to action in a minor league game as early as Wednesday. The Indians and Kipnis remain optimistic on the second baseman's availability for Opening Day.Rotoworld
Advice: Kipnis is nursing a back issue and has been limited to indoor exercises to this point. There's been no indication to this point that the ailment could affect his availability for Opening Day, but Kipnis has been limited to just 22 plate appearances this spring due to his recovery from finger surgery and now the back issue.

Advice: Kipnis was a late scratch from Thursday's lineup and was held out on Friday as well. The Indians aren't yet concerned that the injury will effect his availability for the start of the regular season. He will receive extra at-bats in minor league contests next week provided the issue clears up.
