Braves sign Jason Kipnis to minor league deal with invite to spring training

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

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