Jason Kipnis wins AL Player of the Month award

The best player in the AL last month. - USA TODAY Sports

Kipnis becomes the first Indian to win the POTM award since Shin-Soo Choo in 2008.

MLB has confirmed what we've known for quite a while now: Jason Kipnis was the best player in the American League in June:

Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis won a pair of American League Player of the Week awards for his performance at the plate during the month of June. His claiming of the AL Player of the Month title, then, does not come as much of a surprise.

Kipnis finished June with a .419/.517/.699/1.216 line, besting a crowded field of contenders, including Chris Davis, Mike Trout, and Miguel Cabrera. As Jason noted on Monday, Kipnis' June ranks among the best ever by an Indian.

Hopefully the next recognition Kipnis receives is a spot on the All-Star Team, which will be announced this Sunday.
