Kipnis chasing Cubs' 2nd base job, mentoring Hoerner

MESA, Ariz. (AP) Jason Kipnis joined the Chicago Cubs this spring for a shot at the second base job. He also realizes the role he plays in helping develop 22-year-old prospect Nico Hoerner.

"I think he's a stud. He's going to be one. He's a young guy with a lot of talent and I don't want to get in the way of him progressing in this game, or getting better," Kipnis said at spring training this week.

The two-time All-Star spent his entire nine-year career in Cleveland, amassing nearly 100 postseason at-bats, including the Indians run to the 2016 World Series when they lost in seven games to the Cubs.
