Here’s to a great week!
Kip is plenty good when healthy. From Terry Pluto:
Kipnis’ career breaks down two ways: a) When he’s healthy, he approaches All-Star level. b) When he’s not, he seems to be hurt most of the season.
The last time Kipnis had an injury-marred season was 2014, when he had the dreaded oblique strain and batted .240 (.640 OPS) with six HR and 41 RBI.
He came back in 2015-16 to bat .289 (.817 OPS), averaging 16 HR, 67 RBI and 13 stolen bases. He made the 2015 All-Star team. He stayed healthy. If he stays healthy, he can play like that again.
