    Cleveland Indians v Minnesota Twins

    Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis will enter his first year of arbitration eligibility after the season. He’ll have the opportunity to go through the arbitration process for three years.

    Jason Kipnis

    Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports that second baseman Jason Kipnis is open to discussing a contract extension with the Indians.

  17. Big-ticket signings fail to lift Indians in loss

    Nick Swisher

    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. And it probably did help with the latter, if not the former. However, while neither Swisher nor Bourn went bust in year one in Cleveland, the performances of…

    Evan Longoria made his case for moving up the MVP ballot with his big game Monday, but while it’s safe to say the Rays wouldn’t have reached the postseason without him, he was still no better than the AL’s third best third baseman. It was, in fact, the year of the third baseman in the…

    In case you missed it, Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera turned an incredibly acrobatic double play Saturday in Cleveland’s 9-4 win over the Mets. Jason Kipnis fielded a hard-hit Zach Lutz grounder with a runner on first base and one out, and air-mailed a backhanded flip to the second base bag. Cabrera averted disaster by leaping…

    Another Midsummer Classic in the bag. Another scoresheet which looks like a train wreck, but that’s how the All-Star Game rolls.
