A return to form for Kluber boosts rotation

The Indians' Jason Kipnis hasn't had many runners to talk to, but he mentioned a poll he has been conducting at second base. Kipnis has been asking about ace Corey Kluber, who started slow this season but has looked much better recently, adding to that by allowing two runs (one earned) over 7 1/3 innings in Wednesday's 4-3 win against the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field.

Jason Kipnis heating up for Cleveland Indians

Exercise your democratic rights. The Indians followed up their best week of the season with a very bad one, losing two of three to the Astros, the American League's second-worst team, and then losing two of three to the Twins, the American League's very worst team. Those results put them back at .500, and while in the very mediocre-looking AL Central, that's enough to keep them...

Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis can't hit lefties right now

One problem has returned, and another one has appeared for the first time. Jason Kipnis isn't off to a bad start this season, his batting line of .270/.315/.410 gives him a wRC+ of 102, meaning he's been a touch better than average at the plate, and when you factor in good base running and solid defense, his overall contributions so far are well above average. That batting line is...

Video: Jason Kipnis likes leading off

Lost in all of the Cleveland Indians’ losing is the fact that second baseman Jason Kipnis is quietly having the rebound season many had hoped following 2014. Thus far through May, Kipnis is batting .462 with two home runs and six runs batted in, but the most intriguing part: He’s doing so from the lead-off spot after Tribe manager Terry Francona demoted long-time lead-off hitter...
