CLEVELAND -- Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis, who suffered a mild left ankle sprain during the club's American League pennant-clinching celebration last week, does not expect the injury to be an issue when World Series play with the Cubs opens tonight at Progressive Field.
"I should be good," Kipnis said Monday. "We're feeling good. We're progressing the way we had hoped. Right now, we're just getting out the swelling, getting range of motion back. If we can get it to where I can move around, the doctors have got stuff that can take pain away. I'll be all right tomorrow night."
