Tue Sep 417:59Indians' Kipnis on move to outfield: 'I've got a job to do'
CLEVELAND (AP) — Jason Kipnis has been in this position before. That's the positive.That doesn't mean he's happy about it.Kipnis took fly balls in center field on Tuesday as he transitioned from playing second base after the Indians acquired third baseman Josh Donaldson in a trade last week from the Toronto Blue Jays.Donaldson's arrival — he's currently on the disabled list with a calf injury — has caused an infield shift. Jose Ramirez is moving from third to second, dispatching Kipnis into the outfield. The former All-Star made a similar move last September, but those were different circumstances as Kipnis was coming off the disabled list and the Indians were thin in the outfield because of injuries.This time, Kipnis is being moved to accommodate a star who may help the Indians reach the World Series. And Kipnis has struggled all season."I'm not going to make it about me this year," Kipnis said before starting Tuesday's game against Kansas City at second. "I understand what he c... [More]
