Jason Kipnis homers in the Indians' 8-1 win over the Twins on Tuesday.

Jason Kipnis finished 1-for-4 and hit one of the Cleveland's five homers in the Indians' 8-1 win over the Twins.

Fantasy Impact

Kipnis looks to be recovered from his hamstring issue after now being able to play in back-to-back games. Hopefully, he can also get back his hitting stroke. He is hitting .154 (4-for-26) with one home run in his last seven games. Kipnis and the Indians take on the Twins again on Wednesday as they try to hold off the Twins in the AL Central Division race.

Jason Kipnis leaves Thursday's game with hamstring tightness

Jason Kipnis was removed from Thursday's game against the Rays with right hamstring tightness, according to Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com

Fantasy Impact

Kipnis had just returned from being on the disabled list with a right hamstring injury, so this obviously isn't a good sign. Hopefully, Kipnis hasn't re-aggravated the injury, which would likely keep him out for a substantial period of time.

Jason Kipnis returns from the disabled list, goes 0-for-4

Jason Kipnis was activated from the disabled list on Sunday and led off for the Indians. He went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact

Kipnis had missed about a month with a hamstring injury, but looks ready to man the leadoff spot for the Indians for the remainder of the season. It's been an injury-plagued and forgettable season for Kipnis, but he has the talent to be a potential difference-maker down the stretch for fantasy owners.

Jason Kipnis (hamstring) placed on 10-day disabled list

The Indians placed Jason Kipnis on the 10-day disabled list on Sunday with a strained hamstring. The team recalled Giovanny Urshela to take Kipnis' place on the active roster.

Fantasy Impact

Kipnis left Saturday's game with the strain, and the Indians obviously quickly determined that it was severe enough to land him on the disabled list. It's unclear how much time Kipnis will miss, but it's notable that, with the All-Star break upon us, there are four days without a game, which obviously lessens the impact of the DL stint for fantasy owners. Kipnis has struggled this season (just a .693 OPS), but had hit in three straight before the injury. Expect Erik Gonzalez to take over games at second base, though Jose Ramirez could shift over as well, as he did early in the season.

Jason Kipnis back in Indians lineup Thursday

Jason Kipnis is back in the Indians lineup Thursday against the Padres, batting leadoff and playing second base.

Fantasy Impact

Kipnis sat out Wednesday's game due to a stiff neck. Kipnis will go back to batting leadoff and setting the table for the Indians. Kipnis isn't producing at his normal levels mostly due to his extremely low BABIP and lower than normal BB%. Look for Kipnis to bounce back in the second half.
