The Best Offense in the AL?
Projections: .265 BA, 570 AB, 71 R, 14 HR, 64 RBI, 29 SB, .749 OPS
With his oblique injury a thing of the past, I expect Kipnis to blow past these projections. Kipnis may start the season off batting low in the order, but should eventually settle into the two hole. Kipnis will be 28 come the start of the season, so he will still be in his prime. Even when he isn’t producing, Kipnis is still a top defensive second basemen in the league. As long as he remains healthy, Kipnis is one of the most dangerous hitters in the Indians lineup.
