Since coming up to the Major Leagues last season the Name Jason Kipnis has been on the lips of most Cleveland Indians Fans,with good reason too. Kipnis is clearly one of the best second basemen the Indians have had in a while. Last night Kipnis hit a Grand-Slam to help his Indians team over-power the Minnesota Twins. Kipnis should have All-Star written all over the back of his Jersey. The Problem may be to many other second base-men that have more popularity than the Indians second year second-baseman.
That is about to change if it hasn’t already. Kipnis is going to be one of those hitters other teams fear. Kinis comes in seventh in stats for second basemen, he has played in 51 games this season and has 9 home-runs,35 R.B.I.’s and four doubles. He is hitting .283 and lets not forget Jason Kipnis struggled for about a week just a few game ago. Kipnis is coming into his own now and at this pace he could drive in over 100 runs this season and hit 27 or more home runs if he stays healthy.
Jason Kipnis should be representing the Cleveland Indians this July in the All-Star game that is for sure. Kipnis had a couple of errors defensively, his offense how-ever more than makes up for the couple of poor throws he made. Lets not forget Kipnis is a converted out-fielder who was moved to second base just a short time ago. All and all you would have to agree Kipnis has adapted to playing second base very quickly and he can let his bat do the talking for him offensively. The Indians are very fortunate to have Jason Kipnis at second base. That is why Jason Kipnis is Clearly One of The Great Cleveland Indians.
