The Cleveland Indians have an edge over many teams in baseball when it comes to production from the second base position. Just 26 years old, Jason Kipnis has posted numbers so far in his career that few of his colleagues at the keystone can offer.
Understanding as much, the Indians approached Kipnis about a contract extension this off-season. He is reportedly open to those discussions, though talks did not gain much momentum yet.
On Monday Kipnis hit his first home run of the spring, giving every sign that he is poised for another solid season in Cleveland in 2014.
