Jason Kipnis went 1-for-3 with a single and a strikeout in Tuesday's spring game against the Red Sox.
Kipnis is vying for a bench spot this year and he has done a decent job this spring. He's slashing .250/.308/.417 thus far, certainly not excellent numbers, but serviceable for a bench spot. He can play outfield plus back-up Albies at second base.
Jason Kipnis went 1-for-3 Sunday against the Rays with a two-run homer and two strikeouts.
Kipnis hasn't shown much this spring but is in competition to secure a bench spot when camp breaks.
Veteran second baseman Jason Kipnis posted on his own social media account today that he has agreed to a deal with the Atlanta Braves. Jon Heyman of the MLB Network has confirmed it is a minor league contract with an invitation to MLB camp during spring training.
The 33-year-old infielder will likely provide depth for Atlanta as a utility infielder and a left-handed bat off the bench behind starter Ozzie Albies. Once a fantasy star, Kipnis can be ignored in fantasy leagues at this stage of his career.
Jason Kipnis walked and came around to score Sunday. It was a good way to end the regular season but he simply did not get enough playing time.
He found ways to produce when he started but that simply was not often enough in most leagues. He probably needs to either find a new team or have Hoerner injured to return much value in 2021.
Jason Kipnis only recorded one hit Sunday versus the Brewers. However, he found other ways to reach and would record two runs scored and two driven in.
Kipnis has managed to find some production when he plays. Avoid Kipnis outside of deep leagues unless his starting job becomes reliable which would likely require at least one major injury by someone.
