The Indians placed second baseman Jason Kipnis on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring, MLB.com’s William Kosileski reports. The Indians recalled third baseman Giovanny Urshela from Triple-A Columbus.

Kipnis, 30, suffered the injury running out a ground ball in the third inning of Saturday’s game against the Tigers. He hits the DL batting .232/.292/.402 with eight home runs and 26 RBI in 283 plate appearances.

Erik Gonzalez will handle second base while Kipnis is out. Jose Ramirez could also get a start at second base every once in a while. Ramirez has logged over 500 defensive innings at second base in the majors.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
