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.

The Cleveland Indians received a strong start from Josh Tomlin on Wednesday, allowing two runs and nine hits in 5.2 innings of pitching.

However, the Indians wasted his outing losing to the Chicago Cubs 2-0.

The Tribe only had five hits, two from Jason Kipsnis.

Good news on the Chris Perez progress. The Cleveland closer will be making his first appearance today (Thursday) against Colorado. He’s been out of action since February 23 when an injury to the left oblique muscle occured.

Columbus Clippers second baseman Jason Kipnis has been called up by the parent Cleveland Indians.

Minor-league infielder Jared Goedert has been desiganted for assignment and infielder Luis Valbuena was sent back to Columbus to clear a roster spot on the Indians’40-man roster.

Cleveland purchased Kipnis’ contract from Triple-A Columbus, where he was having a stellar season, hitting .279 with 12 homers, 55 RBI’s, 64 runs scored and 12 stolen bases in 91 games. He leads the International League in triples with nine. He recently led off the MLB Futures Game, which showcases the top minor-league players, with a home run.

He is a second-round 2009 draft pick out of Arizona State.

The XM All-Star Futures Game came down to Grant Green and Tim Beckham keying a three-run eighth inning as the United States beat the World All-Stars, 6-4.

Green, who plays for Double-A Midland, came up as a pinch-hitter in the fifth inning and hit a drive to the left-field fence on one hop to drive home San Jose Giants speedster Gary Brown for a 3-0 U.S. lead.

Green pinch-hit for Columbus Clippers second-baseman Jason Kipnis, whose home run leading off the bottom of the first inning had opened the scoring for the United States.

Green came up again leading off the eighth, with the World Team leading 4-3. All of their runs came in the sixth inning on a pinch-hit RBI double by Sebastian Valle.

The go-ahead hit came from Austin Romine, who will probably be the Yankees catcher in the near future. With two outs, he stroked a single to left-field before Colorado’s Nolan Arenado added an insurance run with his line-drive double to right.

The winning pitcher for the U.S. was Phillies right-hander Jarred Cosart who pitched a scoreless eighth inning.

Closing the game out were Jacob Turner of the Tigers organization and Matt Harvey of the Mets system.

The Columbus Clippers avoided a four-game losing streak with a late rally, beating arch-rival Toledo, 6-3.

Jerad Head’s three-run homer capped the Thursday night comeback at Huntington Park.

The Clippers have dominated the Mud Hens in 2011, winning 12 of 15 games.

The eighth inning was the magic frame for the Clippers. Ezequiel Carrera led off the inning with a bunt single. Jason Donald followed with a walk. Jason Kipnis put Columbus on the board with an RBI single to make it 3-1. The next hitter was Chad Huffman and he was hit by a pitch to load the bases with no outs. Luis Valbuena hit a chopper to first base and Toledo’s only play was a force out at second and a run scored to make it 3-2.

Toledo changed pitchers and Jerad Head came to the plate and blasted a long three-run homer to left field and the Clippers lead 5-3. The lead grew to 6-3 when Matt McBride knocked home Tim Fedroff with an RBI single.

Columbus closer Josh Judy closed the game with his 13th save.
