CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Indians on Saturday announced that second baseman Jason Kipnis will come off the disabled list and start today against the New York Yankees.
The two-time All-Star had been out since July 8, when he strained his right hamstring while running the bases during a game against the Detroit Tigers.
