Jason Kipnis was hit in the back with a Jeremy Guthrie fastball in Thursday’s 12-6 win over the Royals. He tweeted a picture of his battle scar — or in this case, battle bruise.

When the Indians added Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn in free agency, it was supposed to energize the fans and signal the start of a new era.
