Kipnis (ankle) went 0-for-5 in Game 1 of the World Series.

EDGE Analysis

He is dealing with a significant ankle sprain that would likely sideline him for at least a few games if this were the regular season. The Indians will presumably continue to roll with Kipnis, who will be heavily medicated, but it would not be surprising if his performance is not up to par due to the injury.

Kipnis is out of Thursday's lineup against the Tigers, the Akron Beacon Journal's Ryan Lewis reports.

EDGE Analysis

There is a solid chance that Thursday's game will get rained out, in which case the two teams may need to make the game up Monday. If they are somehow able to squeeze the game in, Michael Martinez will start at second base for the Indians and hit ninth Thursday.

Kipnis went 2-for-5 with a double and the game-winning run in Saturday's 1-0 extra-inning victory over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

The second baseman came home in the 10th on Jose Ramirez's single, putting an end to a scoreless marathon. Kipnis is 4-for-9 with two doubles, an RBI and three runs over the first two games of the series against the Tigers. He's also belted a career-high 22 homers and is now just six RBI from equaling the career-best 84 he managed in 2013.

Kipnis went 2-for-4 with an RBI ground rule double, walk and run in Friday's 11-4 victory over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

The second baseman came home twice on Mike Napoli hits and also contributed an RBI ground rule double of his own in the eighth inning, extending the lead to 10-4 at the time. Kipnis' .226/.379/.377 line in September is rather uninspiring, but he has hit safely in three of his last four games.
