Braves signs Jason Kipnis for minor league deal with invitation to spring training

The Braves have signed veteran infielder Jason Kipnis to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training. Kipnis tweeted first he joined the Braves for a while Jon Heyman added it was not a guaranteed big league-contract. The terms of Kipnis’s contract if he made the big league-roster were not immediately known.

Kipnis, who turns 34 in April, spent last year with the Cubs and performed quite well after appearing in 44 games, hitting .237 / .341 / .404 with a 103 wRC + and 0.6 WAR. His strikeout rate was sky-high at 30% (compared to a career average of 19%), although he also ran the highest percentage of his career (13.3%). Last season in Chicago was his first after nearly a decade in Cleveland.

Kipnis played second base exclusively with the Cubs during the shortened 2020 season, with the exception of one game at first base. He has never been considered a strong defender, and he scores on -10 defensive runs saved over his last 2,500 innings in the field. At this point in his career, his defensive versatility is likely limited to the right side of the infield, except for a grandstand in the outfield and he hopes it doesn’t come your way in an emergency. He occasionally filled in the midfield with Cleveland only in 2018.

Kipnis joins a Braves sofa in dire need of depth. You would assume that as long as the wheels don’t suddenly fall off during the month of March, Kipnis will make his way into the big league-squad on the opening day.
