&#8226 Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis homered Sunday, the first of his big league career and third hit since his recall 10 days ago. Kipnis is struggling with a .136 batting average, but the Tribe should keep playing him with Orlando Cabrera having been dealt. Kipnis has power and speed, and should get better for those in deep leagues.
