CLEVELAND — Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis is on the disabled list again with a strained right hamstring.
Kipnis returned recently after missing a month but was removed from Tuesday night’s game against Boston. He grounded out in the first inning and was replaced by a pinch hitter in the third.
Kipnis joins a list of injured Indians players that seems to grow by the day. Pitchers Andrew Miller (right knee tendinitis) and Danny Salazar (sore right elbow) were placed on the 10-day DL on Tuesday.
Kipnis is batting .228 with 11 homers and 30 RBIs. He was on the DL from July 9-Aug. 6 when he first injured the hamstring.
Infielder Erik Gonzalez was recalled from Triple-A Columbus.
