​Well, things in Cleveland just got awkward in a hurry.

After a 2017 season that saw Cleveland Indians second-baseman ​Jason Kipnis miss half the season and then play centerfield in the postseason, it seems as though Kipnis' role may be shrinking.

Kipnis' offensive production has been on the downslope since his All-Star season in 2015. Since the Indians tough exit from the postseason at the hands of the New York Yankees, the front office hasn't been to specific with the former All-Star's future in Cleveland.
