Indians activate rookie 2B Jason Kipnis from DL
Question of the Day
CLEVELAND (AP) - Rookie second baseman Jason Kipnis is coming off the Cleveland Indians' disabled list.
The Indians also recalled infielder Luis Valbuena from Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday before the second game of a key three-game series against the Detroit Tigers.
In other moves, Cleveland claimed right-hander Jason Rice off waivers from the Oakland Athletics, and assigned him to Columbus, and transferred Carlos Carrasco to the 60-day disabled list.
The injury-plagued Indians are trying to chase down the first-place Tigers in the AL Central. Detroit's 4-2 win Monday dropped Cleveland a season-high 7 1/2 games back.
Kipnis gave the Indians spark last month after being called up from Columbus. He batted .279 with six homers and 11 RBI in 18 games before going on the DL on Aug. 14 because of a strained hamstring.
