The team didn't have an update after the game on how much time Kipnis -- who hit a double in his first at-bat -- might miss, but he will have built-in time off with the four-day All-Star break beginning on Monday.
"We'll kind of work through tests and so forth," said bench coach and acting manager Brad Mills after the game. "We'll know a little bit more obviously tomorrow."
Erik Gonzalez came in at second base to replace Kipnis as the Indians took the field in the next inning. Gonzalez singled and doubled in three at-bats and cleanly fielded five balls in his six defensive innings.
