Line of the Day: Jason Kipnis: August 10th, 2011

Jason Kipnis went 5-for-5 with a double, a home run, three RBI and four runs scored to power the Cleveland Indians to a 10-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers in Ubaldo Jimenez's home debut. Kipnis now has six home runs, the first six of his career, over his last 10 games. (video recap)

Line: 5 AB | 4 R | 5 H | 3 RBI; 2B | HR

My fantasy perspective: Kipnis started slow (2-for-17 in his first six games) but has been on fire over his last 10 games. He's gone 16-for-44 (.364 BA) with three doubles, six home runs, 10 RBI and 13 runs scored and a .417 OBP and a .841 SLG. Those numbers are good enough to rank him second overall for fantasy second basemen over the last 15 days behind only Dan Uggla, who's currently riding a 31-game hitting streak.

You'd better move quickly to the waiver wire if you need second base or middle infielder help because his ownership numbers are on the rise! He's now owned in 58.6% of ESPN leagues, 27% of Yahoo! leagues and 56% of CBS leagues.
