Indians miss out on an All-Star starter

Whether fan voting is fair or not, the Cleveland Indians, barring injury, will not have a starter for the 2015 All Star Game. Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis, who is arguably one of the best position players in baseball so far in 2015, had the best chance of being named a starter but did not receive enough fan votes to be one. In fact, he finished third among American League...

MAX EFFORT: Kipnis gives valiant try at preserving Carrasco no-no

  Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis gave a Herculean effort to save the day but fell just short. With two strikes and two outs in the bottom of the ninth of Tribe starter Carlos Carrasco's no-hit bid, Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Joey Butler slapped a liner, which Kipnis did his all to keep from reaching the outfield turf. After the RBI single, Carrasco showed his appreciation...

Hot-hitting Kipnis continues to be menace against Rays

Carlos Carrasco faced Tampa Bay less than two weeks ago and was about as hittable as he's been all season. The way the Rays are batting entering Wednesday night's game at Tropicana Field, it looks as though the Cleveland Indians right-hander might have a decent shot at getting back at them and becoming the third AL pitcher to reach 10 wins. After Tuesday's 6-2 victory, Cleveland...

Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis gets no love

  Cleveland Indians’ second baseman, Jason Kipnis, had put up ridiculously impressive numbers this season, yet, he seems to go unnoticed when talking about the best hitters in the Major Leagues. Kipnis was called up to Cleveland in 2011 and hit for a .272 batting average with seven home runs, nine doubles, and five stolen bases in just 36 games. The sweet stroking lefty followed...

Kipnis Streaking Towards Cincinnati

Few things in life are a certainty. Death. Taxes. And if it weren’t for a stuffed digital ballot box from overzealous Kansas City Royals fans that will inevitably (and thankfully) alter the All-Star voting procedure before next season, Jason Kipnis – 2015 American League All-Star – would be amongst the items on that short list. In the midst of a bumpy ride down some dark and...

Future Could be Bright for Tribe, Prospects

In the midst of a week of Tribe blasts from the past, starting with the ‘95 Tribe Reunion weekend, coupled with a Jason Kipnis reminiscent of his 2013 All-Star season and Chris Perez once again violating MLB’s drug use policy, the future is looking bright for the Cleveland Indians. No, I don’t mean the immediate future, but rather the organization down the line. Between the...

SI names Indians’ Jason Kipnis AL MVP leader

Have the Cleveland Indians finally turned the corner?

On Sunday afternoon, the Cleveland Indians defeated the Cincinnati Reds by a final score of 5-2 for their sixth win in a row. With the win, the Tribe completed their first sweep of the 2015 season and kept their longest winning streak of the year alive. Before the streak, the team’s longest winning streak was just two games, and they has only done in twice. In fact, the Indians...

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...
