BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2017 Due to publishing agreements, the 2017 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2017 book (available in hardcopy, and soon e-book and Kindle).
2016 In May 2015, Bryce Harper put up an OPS of 1.379, Max Scherzer threw 43 innings with a 1.67 ERA, and both were arguably less valuable than Jason Kipnis. He had 22 extra-base hits, played his usual fair defense up the middle, put up an OPS of 1.217, and produced nearly three wins, like some kind of peak Rogers Hornsby resuscitated for a 31-day tour.

On the other side, there was the August shoulder injury he rushed back from. The Indians called it inflammation, but Kipnis commented “there's more to it” on his way back. He did not look like himself after taking a few weeks to recover. He stopped putting balls in the air, and his diminishing speed did him no favors on balls in play. For a player who had always earned extra bases not from home runs but from gap doubles and sterling stolen base success rates, it was a sad montage.

Both versions of Dirtbag are the real thing. Despite the now-frequent minor injuries and a shifting skill set, he remains one of the top pivots in the sport. He'll never be Hornsby for a full year, but even faced with a few bad months, he led all AL second basemen in WARP last year.

2015 Kipnis has been a streaky hitter in his big-league tenure, equally likely to put the offense on his shoulders as to fall into a pit of despair for a month at a time. He forgot the hot streaks in 2014, though his shelving for the month of May with an oblique injury and performance upon his return suggests that the oblique continued to nag him throughout the season. The lower-leg woes he endured down the stretch further compromised his foundation. Kipnis salvaged his value with defense that FRAA liked (though other metrics disagreed) and baserunning (in particular a Rainesesque 88 percent stolen-base percentage). With four very different seasons of performance on his resume, it's anyone's guess which version of Kipnis will show up for 2015.
2014 Kipnis has assumed his much anticipated position as one of the top offensive second basemen in the game, behind only Robinson Cano among American League keystoners in 2013. He even stole 30 bases again, leading a team with a trio of fleet outfielders. Kipnis has shown growth on the other side of the ball as well, making plays on far more balls and approaching average defense (despite the increase in errors). Considering his ability to get on base even when his power is M.I.A.as it was in the second half, when his slugging percentage slid downward from a July 3rd high-water mark of .539he's already one of the top young players in the game, and if his first-half bat sticks around for a full season and the Indians keep winning, he'll be in MVP discussions.
2013 When his hit streak reached 10 games on May 6, Kipnis saw his OPS rise to 917 and the Indians began licking their chops. It looked like their budding star second baseman was picking up right where his 36-game cup of coffee from 2011 left off. Then from May 7 on, he hit a mere .248 with a 672 OPS in 556 plate appearances. His skills didn't collapse: Kipnis maintained his 10 percent walk and 16 percent strikeout rates throughout the season. His issue was a power outage. After posting a 21 percent home-run-to-fly-ball rate in that brief debut, he sank to 10 percent last year. Worse yet, his volume of fly balls was just 30 percentsuper-charged by a 40 percent mark in Apriland he didnt reach 30 after June. No injury was documented, so perhaps the dip is due to sophomore adjusting. Its time for the 26-year-old to counter opposing pitchers.
2012 Kipnis burst onto the major league scene like gangbusters in late July. While minor oblique and hamstring injuries put him on the shelf for part of August, by the end of the season Kipnis had left little question as to why he's considered the top prospect in the Indians' system. While his seven home runs was a surprisepowered by a 20.2 percent HR/FB ratehe'll play everyday at the keystone in 2012 . His quick, compact swing projects modest 15-20 home run power to go with a good batting average. Moved to second in 2010 to hide his below-average arm, Kipnis will manage to be an average defender while projecting as one of the top offensive weapons at the position.
2011 When Kipnis was at playing at a suburban Chicago high school, a pitching teammate of his was the better draft prospect. When that pitcher's arm got hurt, scouts avoided the school. After Kipnis put up big numbers at Kentucky and even bigger ones at Arizona State, he was still seen as a little small and lacking in star-level tools, which dropped him to the second round of the 2009 draft. Now, after Kipnis's full-season debut, it's hard to count the number of scouts who are kicking themselves, as he continued to put up big numbers as a pro and is on the verge of the big leagues. A compact athlete who works the count and consistently barrels up balls with enough power for 15-20 home runs annually in the big leagues, Kipnis saw his value skyrocket not only with his hitting skills, but also with a successful conversion from outfielder to second baseman. Scouts think he can be average at the keystone with a bat that is well above that.
2010 A second-round pick last June, Jason Kipnis looked like a well-rounded prospect as an outfielder, but the Tribe is hoping can be even more valuable with a conversion to second base.

2017-03-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)"Low minors second base prospect is always a tough profile." Ahhh, so THAT'S why every scout crapped all over me, and Dustin, and Cano, and Mookie B., and on and on and on. Maybe second base shouldn't be looked at as a "tough profile" any more than any other position.
(Jose Altuve from Cooperstown, but later)
So Pedroia was a shortstop prospect until Double-A, Cano was mostly a shortstop until High-A (and looked like he would end up at third if we're counting), and Betts played all over the place. People will bring up Jose Altuve until the cows come home, but isn't the guy who turned out to have an 8 hit more the exception than the rule?

Here's an exercise: group your favorite X number of MLB second basemen and see how many were second basemen in the low-minors.

I'll start. Aside from the above, Daniel Murphy wasn't, Ian Kinsler wasn't, Ben Zobrist wasn't, Javier Baez wasn't, Brandon Phillips wasn't, Neil Walker wasn't, Dee Gordon wasn't, Logan Forsythe wasn't, Brian Dozier mostly wasn't, I think Jason Kipnis and Rougned Odor moved there in High-A, hell even Joe Panik moved there in Double-A. (Jarrett Seidler)
2015-06-30 19:00:00 (link to chat)How much are you buying into Jason Kipnis? Something like .285/.365/.445 true-talent? Can he hold a .330 BABIP with the high LD%?
(Tony from Edmond, OK)
I think that's about right, with a higher BA due to the line drive rate/hard hit balls. I think in fantasy he's a legit top five talent at the position. (Mike Gianella)
2015-04-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)Is there anyone that's getting drafted 5th or later ADP that you expect to jump into the first round next year (not rookies, we all know Ssauve is going to gouge his eyes out next year after Bryant turns fastballs into wine)
(EricJ from Unknown)
You mean 5th round? Jason Kipnis if he's healthy. Mookie Betts if he can hold some of that power. Probably not in either case, but so hard to predict. (Mike Gianella)
2015-01-20 19:30:00 (link to chat)I just traded Jason Kipnis, so Kipnis Everdeen is out as a team name. What's the best Mike Trout related team name pun you've heard/have thought of?
(Ian from Tampa Bay)
No idea. I trademarked Asche to Asche, Cust to Cust last year and am looking forward to breaking that out in an expert league soon. (Ben Carsley)
2014-09-15 19:30:00 (link to chat)What are we to expect of Jason Kipnis next year?
(DServi4 from North Carolina)
.270 with 15 homers and 20-plus steals? Third-most valuable second baseman, behind Cano and Altuve. I still prefer him to Pedroia. (Ben Carsley)
2014-08-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you make of Jason Kipnis's year? Big decline in power and BABIP. Perhaps 2013 wasn't a breakout year?
(justarobert from Santa Clara)
I think it was, but the oblique injury really hurt after a slow start. I think he can be a 15 homer guy, but it wouldn't surprise me if the injury is still nagging at him. Obliques tend to linger. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)Would you trade Chris Davis for Jason Kipnis?Need steals,have A.Gonzalez and Encarncion at 1B?
(Bob from New Hampshire)
In your situation, yes I would. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Trade help: Give Billy Hamilton for Jason Kipnis and Adrian Gonzalez? 10 team 12 keeper standard league
(pmitchell60 from NOLA)
I assume you're relatively set in steals, in which case this is a fine deal. Hamilton is obviously an intriguing keeper, too, but this seems like a move where you're contending so I support selling your promising asset for two who could really do some power damage for your offense (Paul Sporer)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Help on a trade proposed: Give George Springer for Dustin Pedroia? 10-team/12 Keeper Standard league....and generally what 2Bs would you target in dynasty leagues?
(pmitchell60 from NOLA)
I'm not making this trade. I'm worried about Pedroia. He's on the wrong side of thirty, the homers have declined as his fly-ball rate has declined, and he's not running this year. I wouldn't feel comfortable giving up a top-tier talent like Springer for that profile.

In dynasty leagues, I'd be very interested in Jason Kipnis right now, as his price is likely lower than it should be. (J.P. Breen)
2014-03-14 09:00:00 (link to chat)11th pick in a 14-team redraft 5X5 league with OBP instead of AVG. Who are some of your preferred guys to target in the late 1st/early 2nd round?
(AJ from AZ)
Hmm. Well it obviously depends on who gets taken earlier, but I like Tulo if he's still there. It's a weird spot because it's too early to start getting cute. I generally would just go with value. Bryce Harper is another obvious play there if he's not gone. I don't see anyone that low in the ADP rankings (say 20 or below) that jumps out as a "wow" move there. I do like David Wright/Freddie Freeman better than sexier guys like Jason Kipnis or Yasiel Puig, but I think all of them are probably stretches there anyway. (Mike Gianella)
2014-02-26 19:00:00 (link to chat)Power & speed combination: who are your top five AL picks this season?
(John from CT)
Mike Trout
Jason Kipnis
Alex Rios
Coco Crisp
Shanf Victorian (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-03-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)What MLB player does Odor most remind you of?
(Shawn from Dallas)
Jason Kipnis with a little less physicality and pop and little more swagger. (Jason Parks on the Completed Prospect Rankings)
2014-02-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Jason Kipnis' breakout sustainable? How do you see him aging?
(Teddy from NY)
Kipnis should continue to be a good, well-rounded player for the years to come. PECOTA expects him to regress a bit (from a .303 TAv to .277) but if the increased power is legitimate then he's probably going to outhit that projection. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-02-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)What's the expectation of Jason Kipnis going forward?
(Brian from FL)
What we've seen seems like a level he can maintain for a long time. Nothing screams further breakout, but he's a star already. (Sam Miller)
2013-11-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)In the game today. Who has the best "Good Face"?
(Sulley9 from Denver)
Great question! I'm partial to Mike Trout. But Jason Kipnis has to be in the top ten. How about you? (Kevin Kerrane)
2013-04-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)Any word on how Rosario looks at 2B this season? Are you familiar with other OF/IF conversions? Seems like it's usually the other way around.
(KL from MN)
I don't know how Rosario's transition is going but you're right that moving to the left of the defensive spectrum is rarer than moving to the right. Jason Kipnis is one big leaguer who moved from the outfield to the infield. Obviously that worked out. (R.J. Anderson)
2013-04-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)Speaking of Outfield to Infield convert Jason Kipnis, what do you make of his start to the season and what will his end of year stat line look like?
(Chris from LA)
I haven't seen him but the uptick in strikeouts is concerning. For now I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he'll post numbers comparable to last season in the end. (R.J. Anderson)
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)How worried should we be about Jason Kipnis? Other waiver wire or buy low 2B to target if he is seriously injured?
(RC from PDX)
See! You could probably get Jeff Keppinger for a song right now, and he should turn it around. Also, I'd be buying low on Dustin Ackley if you could. His owner is probably super frustrated with him right about now. (Bret Sayre)
2013-04-10 20:00:00 (link to chat)Should I give Kipnis/Burnett for Gyorko/Hosmer?? Thanks! Great Stuff!
(tB from Auburn)
Hi tB.

If you can afford to trade the speed and have a pitcher in reserve to fill in for A.J. Burnett, make the trade. Eric Hosmer is better than Jason Kipnis as a pure talent and while A.J. Burnett might be better than Jedd Gyorko this year, you're getting a much younger player for a player at or near the end of the line. (Mike Gianella)
2013-01-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Name a couple players you expect to take a big step forward this year?
(Martin K. from Denver)
I've already mentioned two pitchers, so I'll take a couple of hitters here. Jason Kipnis and Desmond Jennings are my favorite breakout candidates. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-02-02 15:00:00 (link to chat)I need to choose between Dustin Ackley, Jason Kipnis and Jemile Weeks as a long-term option at 2B in my Strat-o-matic league. Which of these guys has the most long-term value? I'm worried about Kipnis and/or Ackley moving to the outfield down the road.
(Danny from NC)
I'd go with Ackley, he appears to be the most complete player of the three, and as best I can tell the Mariners seem committed to him at 2B. He's a much greater asset there than he would be in an outfield corner. (Cory Schwartz)
2012-01-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is the better bet long-term at 2B: Dustin Ackley, Jemile Weeks or Jason Kipnis?
(Desmond from Jersey)
I'd gladly take any of the above and smile the grandest of smiles. Forced to rank, I'd go: Ackley, Kipnis, Weeks. (Jason Parks)
2012-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think Jason Kipnis will do this season?
(John from Mississippi)
.270-15-10 with upside (Derek Carty)
2011-11-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)How do you evaluate the following young 2B in terms of long-term fantasy value?: Jemile Weeks, Jason Kipnis, Dustin Ackley.
(Steve from Pitt)
Kipnis, Weeks, Ackley (Derek Carty)
2011-10-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Small sample size, but were you surprised by Jason Kipnis' power? Think he can go 20/20 with a solid average?
(Cale from Cleveland, OH)
I do. Very skilled hitter. (Jason Parks)
2011-07-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why is Orlando Cabrera still playing in Cleveland? (No fair going with the pictures of management in compromising positions joke)
(Slew from Seattle)
He apparently has pictures of Jason Kipnis.

I'm not sure why they aren't to Kipnis yet, unless they think he's so dreadful defensively (which he isn't) One other option: Kipnis was an OF in college. Luis Valbuena had to play LF the last 2 days and had plays that may have affected the outcome of the game. I'd really like them to upgrade internally, but not why they thought Chisenhall was ready and Kipnis wasn't. (Mike Ferrin)
2011-06-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Derek. Callups such as Moustakas and Ackley have recently deposed primary starters for teams. Which other current players do you see as short-timers in their starting line-up? One specific Q: Johnny Gia for Getz anytime soon? Thanks...
(LoyalRoyal from LV, KS)
I think we'll see Johnny Giavotella this season, but the Royals may look to extract some value via trade out of a guy like Getz beforehand. Other guys to look for in the near-term include Trayvon Robinson, Jason Kipnis, and Dayan Viciedo. There's talk Wily Mo Pena will get the call this week to DH and could force himself into the OF picture in Arizona if he hits. (Derek Carty)
2011-04-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who would you rather have in 2012: Orlando Cabrera or Jason Kipnis?
(Guancous from Silver Spring, MD)
Kipnis, for sure. He hit well in Double-A last year, and is in Triple-A for the first time this season. Cabrera doesn't have much left, if anything. I would probably rather have Kipnis as soon as possible. (Marc Normandin)
2011-01-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Jason Kipnis is a guy you've really touted this year. As an offensive minded 2bman, what kind of power/avg./speed combo are we talking if all goes right?
(Vic31 from Newark, NJ)
.300 hitter with 12-18 home runs and solid 1 per 10 walk rate. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-01-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Speaking only in terms of offensive production, better career Danny Espinosa or Jason Kipnis?
(Socialist Joe from Somewhere in NY)
Kipnis. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-01-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)I see the multiple choice questions are popular. Nick Franklin or Jason Kipnis?
(myshkin from Santa Clara, CA)
Kipnis. (Kevin Goldstein)
2011-01-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Jason Kipnis or Mystery Player from Mystery Team?
(Gotribe31 from DC)
Mystery Team Top 11 comes out in February. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-08-20 15:30:00 (link to chat)How do Dustin Ackley and Jason Kipnis match up as far as tools, projection and upside?
(Mike from Cleveland)
I've asked this exact question myself and it's one I'm struggling with. There is the whole reputation vs. results quandry. Ackley is faster, should be a better hitter, but Kipnis HAS been the better hitter, and has a much more successful conversion to the infield. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-07-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)KG, what do you make of Jason Kipnis? He's been as advertised with the bat, even displaying solid power at Akron, but does he have enough glove for 2nd?
(Troy from Cleveland)
Another guy I'm a big, big fan of. I don't think he'll ever confuse anyone with Orlando Hudson there or anything, but I think he'll hold his own, and I think he'll hit. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can Jason Donald actually play shortstop? Because he hasn't thus far. Who plays 2B for CLE in 2012, Jason Kipnis? Should the Tribe let Jhonny Peralta play SS for two weeks in a desperate attempt to show off his "versatility?" (But seriously: Donald is an atrocious SS.)
(buffum from Austin TX)
What's wrong with Asdrubal? Is he going to be gone in 2012, guaranteed? (Marc Normandin)
2010-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Asdrubal Cabrera will be the SS in 2012, AFAIK. Unless Jhonny gets re-upped, then all bets are off. But at 2B, you have Cord Phelps, Jason Kipnis, Jason Donald, and Luis Valbuena. None of whom I want to see on the other side of the diamond.
(buffum from Austin TX)
Well there's always trades and free agency I guess. (Marc Normandin)
2010-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)What would you say is the best-case, yet still reasonable, timeline for Jason Kipnis?
(Dave from Denver)
late 2012? (Kevin Goldstein)
