Jason Kipnis has a baseball-sized bruise on his back


Jason Kipnis was hit in the back with a Jeremy Guthrie fastball in Thursday’s 12-6 win over the Royals. He tweeted a picture of his battle scar — or in this case, battle bruise.

I can’t tell where exactly he got hit, but I’ll have all of my top men on the case.

Kipnis is fine, by the way. He was back in the starting lineup Friday afternoon and went 0-for-2 with a walk.
