Francisco Lindor won't come up this year
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

Indians manager Terry Francona told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that the team will not be promoting any more minor leaguers this season, including top prospect Francisco Lindor. Francona plans on sticking with Jose Ramirez as his starting shortstop, leaving Lindor to wait until 2015 to potentially make his major league debut.

Lindor finished the season at Triple-A Columbus, batting .273 with five home runs, 14 RBI and three stolen bases in 38 games there.

GM: Francisco Lindor to stay in Columbus for now
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Indians prized prospect Francisco Lindor will remain at Triple-A Columbus for now despite the deal that sent starting shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera to Washington.

That's the word from general manager Chris Antonetti, per the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram.

The shortstop duties will be handled by veteran Mike Aviles and rookie Jose Ramirez. The 20-year-old Lindor has been hitting well since his promotion to Columbus with 10 hits in 31 at-bats and a .400 on-base percentage.

Francisco Lindor might be on verge of promotion to Indians
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The conventional wisdom is that veteran Mike Aviles or young Jose Ramirez will assume the starting shortstop job with the Indians if Asdrubal Cabrera is traded at the deadline, as has been rumored. But stud prospect Francisco Lindor could be throwing himself into the conversation.

The 20-year-old Lindor has raised his level of production since his promotion to Triple-A Columbus. He has 10 hits in 32 at-bats with two home runs and four RBI. He has scored seven runs in seven games.

The Indians could also be tempted to bring him up to spur fan interest, though it remains likely they wait until September. They rank second-last in the major leagues in average attendance per game.

Indians haven't talked about promotion for Francisco Lindor
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Indians shortstop prospect Francisco Lindor hit a pair of home runs Saturday for Triple-A Columbus. The 20-year-old infielder is batting .333 (6 for 18) with one stolen base, three walks, four extra-base hits and five runs in five games since being promoted from Double-A Akron.

Indians manager Terry Francona said Sunday the team has not had any internal discussions about bringing Lindor to the majors later this season, per MLB.com.

"We haven't even talked about it," Francona said. "He's on a pretty fast track right now. ... I think the organization views Lindor as a mature enough kid that he'll probably handle whatever. So, I think [being in Triple-A] is good for him. He's a pretty young kid, but he's a very mature kid."

Indians not ready to promote Francisco Lindor
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

If Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera needs a stint on the disabled list due to a back injury, the team will not promote top prospect Francisco Lindor to replace him on the roster, according to The Plain Dealer. Lindor was just promoted to Triple-A Akron Monday.
