2B Jason Kipnis, Cleveland Indians

Kipnis is hitting out of this world in May. Not only does he lead the division, but he leads all of baseball with a .449 batting average in May. He also has a .738 slugging percentage and 1.270 OPS.

In 107 at-bats this month, he has 48 hits, which 20 have gone for extra bases. Kipnis has four home runs, 16 RBI and three stolen bases. Oh, and his 28 runs is five more than any other player in the league.

With the incredible May, Kipnis has raised his season totals to .345/.416/.536, five home runs, 24 RBI and 35 runs in 194 at-bats.
