Jason Kipnis has turned his season around since jumping to the top of the order and hitting leadoff for the Cleveland Indians. May was very kind to Kipnis, hitting .429 with 15 doubles, 3 triples and 4 home runs.  He also walked 16 times and owned a .515 OBP, leading to 30 runs scored. 

Brian Dozier has also been one the best hitting second basemen in the MLB, with 16 doubles and 10 home runs on the year, leading to more than 40 runs scored.

But compared to the All-Time great seasons (since 1970) they have a LONG way to go.

Roberto Alomar and Joe Morgan lead with 5 appearances, and Alomar’s 1999 season tops the chart!

And Craig Biggio and Ryne Sandberg make the list three times.
