Right about now I'm regretting not activating him. What a power display.

With 4 homeruns in 4 games, Kipnis may be here to stay. He does not look overwhelmed at the plate, tho he did miss a turn at second against the Bostons. My guess is, he will be learning defense in the majors.

I can keep him down until the first season in which he no longer has rookie eligibility. Most likely opening day next year is when His contract automatically befits to age.

You actually have the option of just leaving Kipnis down?

Huh. We have 2 league transaction periods to activate someone like Kipnis or we lose him.

Here comes the pain... I've lost Sizemore and Vlad. Gained Guillen. I could activate Kipnis to DH for the short term, but it would begin aging his contract, rather than next year. I'm in 3rd with no chance at first.

And, when Vlad comes back he can only go to DH. Oh, the terrible decisions we have to make about the future versus the present.

I don't think there's another issue. i think it's timing. The hope was that when Chisenhall came up he'd be ready to stay, and the same is true of Kipnis and his defense at 2d. I expected Chisenhall and Kipnis to be starting by August, and I don't see any reason to change that. Hannahan and Father Orlando Cabrera are place holders, which gives Phelps hope as well. With Laporta (where the jury is out) and Asdrubal Cabrera, that's a nice young infield for the future.

The more recent half of Jason Kipnis. Kipnis has been better than Cord Phelps and better than Lonnie Chisenhall. He was better than both last year and better than both this year with the stick. But, he's the one sitting at AAA. One wonders if it's just defense he has to work on or if there is another issue that the team has with him.
