Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis out 3-5 weeks with injury

Jason Kipnis

The Cleveland Indians with a record of 12-17 to start the 2014 season has been hard to figure for a team that made the playoffs last season.

The task to get back to playing consistent baseball is going to be challenged with an injury to a key player.

All-Star second baseman Jason Kipnis has been placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained side muscle. He is expected to miss three to five weeks.

Cleveland has recalled infielder Jose Ramirez from Triple-A Columbus Clippers.

Kipnis signed a 6-year, $52.5 million contract with the Indians on April 4, 2014.

An exciting player, Kipnis has been nicknamed “Dirtbag,” since he is prone to get his uniform dirty during the course of a game.

Exhibition Baseball: Indians 6 Texas Rangers 5


Two players who are trying to make the Cleveland Indians 25-man roster for the 2014 season, helped their causes with solid play yesterday.

Outfielder Jeff Francoeur went 2-for-3 highlighted by a 2-run single in the top of the first inning and shortstop Elliott Johnson collected three hits in the Tribe’s 6-5 win over the Texas Rangers in Surprise, Arizona.

The Indians had 11 hits and did not allow Rangers’ starting pitcher Colby Lewis out of the first inning.

It has been quite awhile since Roberto Hernandez, formerly known as Fausto Carmona had won a game on the mound.

Yesterday, for the Tampa Bay Rays, he pitched effectively for six innings, allowed one earned run, three hits, three walks and seven strikeouts in an 8-1 win over the Oakland Athletics.

The win was his first since becoming Roberto Hernandez and he is 1-3 to start the 2013 season.

The victory was also his since September 20, 2011 when he pitched for the Cleveland Indians.

The 32-year-old right-hander has changed his life after completing a work program. He was arrested in the Dominican Republic in January of 2012 on false-identity charges. The charges were later dropped.

Hernandez has a career record of 54-72 with an ERA of 4,64 and 592 strikeouts.

Key members of Indians bullpen hurt; Closer Perez (shoulder), longman Hermann (ligament)

One of the Cleveland Indians strengths in 2012 was their bullpen.

They feel that it’ll stay that way in 2013, but there are a couple of key personnel that have come up hurt as Spring Training camp continues.

All-Star closer Chris Perez could miss a month due to a strained right throwing shoulder.

Long reliever Frank Hermann suffered a sprained ligament in his throwing elbow on Monday. It is not known how long he will be out of action.

Perez saved 39 games last season and Hermann has a career record of 4.26 ERA with 72 strikeouts.

Daisuke Matsuzaka, aka Dice-K, pitched two scoreless innings and seven Cleveland Indians pitchers combined on a one-hitter, leading to a 3-0 split-squad win over the Cincinnati Reds at Goodyear, Arizona.

The Indians are taking a gamble on the right-handed Matsuzaka, who had arm problems the last few seasons with the Boston Red Sox.

The Japanese fireballer had Tommy John sugery in 2011 which led to him only getting 11 starts in 2012.

The bright spot for the Reds were Sam LeCure and Manny Parra who each threw two scoreless innings on Sunday.
