Can Jason Kipnis Bounce Back In 2015?

Baseball has returned to Cleveland. After acquiring Brandon Moss, the Indians have at the least become contenders in the American League Central. Michael Brantley and Corey Kluber emerged last season as the faces of the franchise after enjoying career years and other players on the squad are falling into place. It is funny to think that just a year ago, the young Jason Kipnis was...

Gonzalez Waits his Turn in Crowded Infield

Jason Kipnis has a lockdown on the Indians second base job for the foreseeable future. Third base seems to be Lonnie Chisenhall’s. Shortstop currently belongs to youngster Jose Ramirez while super-prospect Francisco Lindor breathes down his neck. First base is already a log jam of veterans with Carlos Santana, Nick Swisher and Brandon Moss all capable of playing there. Such is...

Jason Kipnis checks in at 52 in our Top 200 Countdown (order created back in November) and ended up ranked 66th overall in our 2015 Draft Guide. For a non-top 50 player in our 2015 projections, though, Kipnis has an immense amount of upside.

Brandon Moss and Jason Kipnis: Early storylines coming out of Goodyear

On Wednesday, I explained some of the reasons Spring Training matters to me. In doing so, I neglected to discuss anything about the actual pitchers and catchers reporting for the Cleveland Indians. Well, the Tribe did have their official opening of Spring Training and’s Jordan Bastian reports that most of the players are already in Goodyear and practicing. Indians pitchers...

Where are you Kipnis?

Unlike the last rebound candidate, Nick Swisher, there is much less history with Jason Kipnis as he has played only three full seasons in the pros. But similar to Swisher, Kipnis had an injury in 2014 that significantly affected his swing. After straining his right oblique in April, Kipnis’ batting took a bad turn for the worst, ultimately resulting in a .240/.310/.330 slash line...

Indians Would Benefit Greatly From a Return to All-Star Form For Kipnis

In 2013 Jason Kipnis was an American League All Star second baseman who played an important role in helping the Indians to that season’s Wild Card game. In 2014 Kipnis had his worst big league campaign and the Tribe offense stalled at times with one of its key players scuffling. Needless to say, the Tribe could really use the Kipnis who made his Major League debut in 2011 and was...

The modern era of baseball has been completely redefined by a statistical revolution, providing much more accurate analysis of what is actually happening on the field from an all encompassing view down to the smallest detail. Unfortunately, even with these stats making analysis an option for every viewer, fans still fall into the same old pitfalls of bandwagon jumping. Similar to...
