For the second game in a row, Kluber struck out 14 batters Sunday against the Twins, allowing two runs over eight innings on seven hits and a walk. He picked up his 17th win of the year in the process.
The Indians are hopeful that Kipnis (hamstring) will be able to return to the lineup Saturday, MLB.com reports. "He showed up and actually exhibited pretty good strength," manager Terry Francona said prior to Friday's game. "He's sore enough where we're not going to play him today. We would see about tomorrow, but I think we're more in that range, as opposed to four or five days. I think when you say 'day to day,' we really are legitimately day to day."
Walters (ribs) is day-to-day with rib soreness after an MRI revealed no structural damage, MLB.com reports. "Structurally, he's good, so we know it's a soft tissue issue," manager Terry Francona said. "We just have to see how he responds. The trainers think this might be pretty quick."
Raburn (knee) is likely headed for an MRI after showing no signs of improvement Monday, MLB.com reports. "We brought him here because if he had a good day and was day-to-day, maybe let him sit for a couple of days and be good," manager Terry Francona said. "But the fact that he came in and was pretty tender, there's no way around it, he has to get looked at."
Raburn (knee) showed little improvement Sunday and could be headed for an MRI if he doesn't make much progress in the next few days, MLB.com reports. "He won't do anything today other than get treatment, and then we'll kind of see how the next day or so goes. If he starts to improve, that's good. If he doesn't, then we'd probably think about getting him an MRI or something," manager Terry Francona said.
