Former Cubs infielder Jason Kipnis signs with Braves


by - Senior Editor -

Former Chicago Cubs second baseman Jason Kipnis announced Monday that he has signed a minor league deal with the Atlanta Braves.

"Atlanta, here we come! Excited to join the Braves organization this season," he tweeted.

The contract includes a spring invite and pending a physical.

Kipnis took to social media to say thank you to the Cubs for a great experience in 2020.

"Also can’t say enough good things about the @Cubs org," he posted. "Absolutely loved putting on that uni.. and although it was a weird, shortened season w/o fans, I’m grateful it happened at all! I would’ve loved to experience a full Wrigley in Cubbie blue."

The Glenbrook North native hit .237 with three homers and 15 RBIs in 44 games last season.

Best of luck to Kipnis in Atlanta, as it was a pleasure to cover him on a daily basis.
