Kipnis will move to center field when Josh Donaldson (calf) returns from the disabled list Tuesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Donaldson set to play third base upon his return, the Indians will push Jose Ramirez to the keystone, Kipnis to the outfield and Greg Allen to a reserve role. The 31-year-old Kipnis started 10 games in center field at the end of 2017, so it shouldn't be too difficult of a transition this time around. He's hitting .229/.314/.378 with 15 homers and seven stolen bases through 132 games this season.

Kipnis is not in the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Kipnis is hitting just .229 against lefties this season, so it comes as little surprise that he'll be held out against Toronto's southpaw starter Thomas Pannone. Erik Gonzalez will replace him at the keystone for the series finale.

Kipnis went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run Thursday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Kipnis took Mark Leiter Jr. deep in the ninth inning to record his 15th home run of the season. He now has three home runs in his past eight games, while also driving in 10 runners. Though Kipnis' .230 average is a disappointment, he has the opportunity to both score and drive in 70 runners for the season thanks to strong team context.

Kipnis went 2-for-3 with a double, a stolen base, an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's win over the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Kipnis doubled in the second inning and came around to score on a Greg Allen single to put the Indians up 1-0. He added a single and a stolen base -- his seventh of the season -- in the sixth inning before hitting a sacrifice fly in the eighth frame. Kipnis has now collected multiple hits in consecutive games, bringing his season batting average to .231.

Kipnis is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rays.

Kipnis went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run and three RBI in Thursday's 5-3 victory over the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Kipnis connected on a three-run homer in the sixth inning that ended up putting the Indians ahead for good. He now has five extra-base hits in his last four appearances, but he's only increased his 2018 slash line to .229/.316/.373 in the process. After a disappointing season thus far, the Indians would love to see Kipnis maintain the hot streak as the postseason approaches.

Kipnis went 4-for-5 with a home run, four RBI, three runs, a stolen base and a double during Sunday's 12-5 win over the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Kipnis plated runs in three of his five at-bats on the day, including an RBI single in the fourth, a run-scoring double in the seventh and an electrifying two-run inside-the-park home run in the ninth. He also swiped his first base in nearly two weeks for good measure. Kipnis entered the day with just two hits in his previous 10 games, so perhaps he can build on this effort down the stretch in the regular season.

Kipnis is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

It appears to be a rare day off for Kipnis, who started the previous 18 games for Cleveland, slashing .220/.352/.322 over that stretch. In his place, Erik Gonzalez is starting at second base and hitting ninth.
