Team: Cleveland Indians
Position: Second Base
One half of the Indians' talented young middle infield, Kipnis in continuing his progress in his first full major league season. Cleveland is looking up at both the White Sox and Tigers in the AL Central, and may not have a shot at either wild card with the Angels and Red Sox finally playing close to expectations, but Cleveland has a very solid, very dynamic core in Kipnis and shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera.
