2B Kipnis breaks hand, a blow to Indians' playoff chances

CLEVELAND (AP) The Indians' postseason chances have been dealt another blow - second baseman Jason Kipnis has a broken right hand.

Kipnis will need surgery on the fractured hamate bone, the same injury that has kept third baseman Jose Ramirez out of Cleveland's lineup for weeks. The team said Kipnis will need four to six weeks to recover, which means the earliest he could be back is mid-October.
