Indians Place Jason Kipnis on DL

The Cleveland Indians have placed 2B Jason Kipnis on the disabled list with a right oblique strain.  Kipnis will be out 3-5 weeks. 

After hitting 17 home runs and driving in 84 runs last season, both career highs, Kipnis signed a big 6 year $52.5 mil contract.  This season, he is struggling at the plate hitting .234 with 3 home runs and 12 RBI.  The Indians as a team are struggling offensively, and will rely on Elliot Johnson and Mike Aviles at second base.
