Jason Kipnis is expected to sign with the Chicago Cubs

Free agent second baseman Jason Kipnis is expected to sign a Minor League agreement with an invitation to camp pending a physical with the Chicago Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

Kipnis, a graduate of Glenbrook North High School just outside of Chicago, will be returning home to play for the team he rooted for as a kid. No longer the All-Star he used to be, Kipnis can bring a big lefty bat to the Cubs rotation and contribute as a solid defender at second base if he is called up. The last three seasons for Kipnis have compiled for three of his four worst batting averages over his nine-year career so it's assumed the he, David Bote, and Nico Hoerner will split duties at second base for the Cubs, with the possibility that Hoerner moves to AAA to help further his development. Kipnis has a decent shot at winning the starting spot but he'll have to prove himself in camp. Last year Kipnis posted a .245 AVG, .715 OPS, 17 HR, 65 RBI, 52 R, and 88 SO over 121 games.

Jason Kipnis club option declined

Fantasy Impact

Kipnis hit .245/.304/.410 with 17 home runs in 2019, but was forced to miss the final week of the season after having surgery on his right hand. The veteran second baseman will look to latch onto another team this off-season.
