CLEVELAND — Francisco Lindor, Jason Kipnis and Carlos Gonzalez are all working their way to the Indians' lineup at different intervals.

Lindor flew to Green Bay, Wis. on Monday to get a second opinion on his sprained ankle from Dr. Robert Anderson. The team hopes to have a timetable for his return, or at least a better idea, on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Jason Kipnis, rehabbing from a strained calf, has started running the bases, according to manager Terry Francona. Kipnis is eligible to come off the disabled list on April 4.

Carlos Gonzalez, who has an opt-out date of April 20, will be flying to Columbus on Tuesday. He'll workout with the team on Wednesday and then play in their first game of the season on Thursday.
