CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -
The Cleveland Indians announced the club has signed Jason Kipnis to a six-year contract extension thru the 2019 season with a club option for 2020.
Kipnis, who turned 27 on Thursday, is coming off his first American League All-Star selection in 2013, hitting .284 (160-564) while leading the 2013 AL Wild Card participants in runs (86), hits (160), RBI (84) and steals (30) in just his second full Major League season. He became just the sixth Indian in the 113-year history of the franchise to eclipse the 15 home run/30 steal barrier and finished tied for 7th in the AL in walks (76), tied for 9th in steals (30) and finished in the top 20 in RBI (T16th, 84) and on-base pct (14th, .366).
Entering his fourth overall season in the Majors, he has quickly established himself among the league's best second basemen, finishing 3rd among MLB second sackers in OPS (.818), 2nd in stolen bases and tied for 3rd in RBI among his second base peers in 2013. The Chicago, IL native's team-high 84RBI were the most by an Indians 2B since Roberto Alomar (100) in 2001 as he became the first Tribe 2B since 1948 to lead the team outright in RBI.
The homegrown product was originally selected by Cleveland in the 2nd round (63rd overall) of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft out of Arizona State University. An outfielder in high school and college, Kipnis began the transition into the infield during the 2010 campaign and made his debut at second base in 2011 less than a year later. Jason is one of 16 Indians on the current Major League roster under team control thru at least 2016.
