Cleveland Indians 2nd basemen Jason Kipnis is one of the hottest players in Major League Baseball right now and was just named the AL Player of the Week for the 2nd time in June.
What a month of June it was for Kipnis, who batted .419 for the month! He had 39 hits, 25 RBI, 20 walks, 17 extra-base hits, 17 runs scored, 9 stolen bases and 4 home runs.
If you look back over the history of baseball only 5 players have had the kind of month that Kipnis did with 39 hits, 25 RBI, 20 walks, 17 extra-base hits and 9 steals. The last player to do it was Chuck Knoblauch in 1996 and Barry Bonds in 1992.
Could player of the month be next?? and could this be what the Indians need for this team to finish strong?
You would think this would get him an invite to the All-Star Game in New York in a couple weeks too.
Kipnis looks like a star for years to come at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario.
