2017 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: JASON KIPNIS SHUT DOWN FOR 5 DAYS DUE TO SHOULDER TROUBLE

Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis has been shut down the next five days due to a bout of rotator cuff pain in his shoulder.  Kipnis has already gotten a cortisone shot but manager Terry Francona admitted that he is a bit concerned about his availability moving forward.  Heading into 2017 fantasy baseball, Kipnis is generally regarded as a solid but unspectacular second baseman who carries much less flash then his earlier days when he was stealing 30 bases.  The numbers have been all over the map with Kipnis the last two seasons which makes him hard to nail down a value on but his draft price is quite cheap given the solid level production.  Obviously the injury will say a lot about what to do with Kipnis moving forward but for now it is a smart idea to drop him down your cheat sheets some.
