Indians' Jason Kipnis Appears To Have Mixed Feelings About White Sox Trading Chris Sale

(CBS) Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis appears to have mixed feelings about the White Sox trading ace left-hander Chris Sale to the Red Sox, a deal that was agreed early Tuesday afternoon.

On the plus side, the Kipnis and the Indians won't have to face one of the game's best pitchers as often, as Sale has left the AL Central. On the flip side, Kipnis will have to work a little more often when the Indians face the White Sox.

As it was, Kipnis often sat out when Sale pitched because of the lefty-lefty matchup. Kipnis is 5-of-20 against Sale in his career. He's had just eight at-bats against Sale in the past three years.
