Indians' Francisco Lindor: Hits two home runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 2-for-5 with two solo home runs in a 7-2 win over the Reds on Saturday.

Lindor was without a home run in his previous 15 games, but he went deep twice Saturday off Cincinnati starter Anthony DeSclafani. The 25-year-old has a .295/.356/.511 slash line with 14 home runs and 13 stolen bases in 68 games this season.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Posts two hits with steal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 2-for-4 with an RBI double, run and stolen base in an 8-3 victory against the Tigers on Sunday.

The 25-year-old missed the beginning of the season, but he's still on pace to finish with around 25 steals, the plateau he reached last year that set a new career high. Lindor is hitting .291 with 12 home runs, 27 RBI, 38 runs and 11 steals in 234 at-bats during 2019.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Swipes two bags
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 1-for-5 with two stolen bases in a 4-2 victory over the Tigers on Saturday.

The pair of steals moves the 25-year-old into the Top 12 in the category in the American League. Considering Lindor missed most of April, that's not bad. He is 9-for-10 in stolen-base attempts, and he's also batting .300 with 11 home runs, 25 RBI and 32 runs in 200 at-bats this season.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Third straight multi-hit game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a stolen base and three runs Wednesday in the Indians' 9-7 win over the Twins.

Lindor's delayed start to the season due to ankle and calf injuries suffered in the spring has seemingly had no impact on his productivity since he returned from the 10-day injured list in late April. After his third straight multi-hit performance, Lindor's OPS now rests at .938, 67 points better than the career-high mark he posted in 2018. He's also been efficient on the basepaths, nabbing seven steals in eight attempts.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Powers offense with two homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 3-for-3 with two home runs, three RBI, a double and a walk in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Twins.

Lindor hit a solo shot in the third inning and had a two-run blast in the fifth to provide all the runs the Indians would need, though the offense still tacked on a pair of insurance runs for good measure. The 25-year-old is crushing the ball lately with a .412 average, three doubles and three home runs in his last nine games.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Drives in team's lone run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Friday against the White Sox.

Lindor got the Indians on the board in the first inning with a solo blast to right field, his eighth home run of the season. The 25-year-old is slashing .282/.357/.477 with 20 RBI and six stolen bases over 38 games in 2019.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Smacks leadoff homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 1-for-5 with a solo home run Tuesday in the Indians' 5-3 loss to the Athletics.

Lindor kicked off the scoring on the night with a leadoff home run, his seventh of the season. Despite not making his season debut until April 20, Lindor ranks second on the Indians in home runs, one behind Carlos Santana, who connected on his eighth long ball in the third inning.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Collects homer, steal in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 2-for-2 with a home run, a stolen base, a walk and two RBI in Monday's 5-2 loss to the White Sox.

Lindor was one of the few bright spots for Cleveland as the team suffered its third loss in four games, continuing what has been a regular trend for one of baseball's least-productive offenses. Since returning from the injured list April 20, Lindor hasn't been quite as productive as he was in 2018, but his .296/.333/.494 slash line to go with a 4-for-5 success rate on stolen-base attempts has made him the clear top hitter in the lineup. He'll be back in action for the day game after a night game, slotting in as the leadoff man while occupying shortstop, per Mandy Bell of MLB.com.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Second straight two-hit game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 2-for-4 and scored a run Sunday in the Indians' 5-3 win over the Athletics.

Lindor finished the weekend with back-to-back two-hit performances, propping his average up to .278 since he was activated from the 10-day injured list April 20. There was some concern that the right calf strain Lindor suffered prior to spring training and the left ankle sprain he sustained in late March might limit his impact on the basepaths, but he was successful in his first three stolen-base attempts before being thrown out Sunday.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor is not starting Saturday against Houston, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Lindor started six straight games after returning from the injured list but will now get a day off. He hit .259 in those six games but already has three homers. Mike Freeman starts at shortstop in his absence.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Powers offense in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 2-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI in Friday's 6-3 win over the Astros.

His third-inning solo shot off Collin McHugh got Cleveland on the board, and then Lindor supplied some insurance runs in the ninth with a two-run blast off Josh James. The shortstop is now slashing .259/.259/.593 with three homers in six games since his return from the injured list.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Slugs first homer of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 11-5 loss to the Braves.

Lindor returned from the 10-day injured list to start at shortstop in the second half of a doubleheader Saturday and apparently experienced no setbacks with his left ankle or right calf in that contest. As a result, manager Terry Francona cleared Lindor to play for the second day in a row, and the 25-year-old provided one of the few Indians highlights in the series finale. Lindor may receive an occasional day off in his first few weeks back from the injury, but that shouldn't affect his status as a must-start player in all fantasy formats now that he's finally healthy again.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: To start nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor is not starting the first half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Braves but will be in the lineup for the nightcap at shortstop, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

The Indians won't make Lindor play two games immediately after returning from the injured list, though it's possible he could make an appearance off the bench in the first game. Max Moroff gets the start in the afternoon contest.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Returns from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Indians reinstated Lindor (ankle/calf) from the 10-day injured list Saturday.

Lindor will presumably make his season debut at either shortstop or designated hitter in one (or both) of the Tribe's doubleheader games Saturday against the Braves. The April 20 return is about a week earlier than what was initially projected after Lindor sprained his left ankle in late March while rehabbing an existing right calf strain, so those that drafted the 25-year-old have to be fairly satisfied with this outcome. The Tribe cleared a spot on the active roster for Lindor by designating Hanley Ramirez for assignment.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Could be activated Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor (ankle) could be activated Saturday morning, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

Lindor has joined the team after a brief rehab assignment, but he won't get the chance to play right away with Friday's game against the Braves getting postponed due to rain. The Indians will decide whether or not he's ready to go Saturday morning, though the expectation is that he will indeed be cleared.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Could return Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor (ankle) will rejoin the Indians on Friday, at which point the team will evaluate whether he's ready to be activated from the 10-day injured list, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

The Indians have said all along that Lindor wouldn't need a lengthy rehab assignment. The team could certainly use its star shortstop back to ignite a struggling offense which ranks 27th in the league with a 65 wRC+.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Homers in rehab game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor (ankle) went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and a strikeout in Tuesday's rehab game with Triple-A Columbus.

It was Lindor's first rehab game, and his ankle looked just fine during his trot around the bases. He injured the ankle during a rundown in a minor-league game late in spring training while he was rehabbing a calf injury. Lindor has suggested that when he sprained his ankle, the calf issue was essentially already behind him. Manager Terry Francona said he did not expect Lindor to need many at-bats in the minors, so a return this weekend against Atlanta would seem on the table.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Heading to Triple-A for rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor (ankle) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Columbus on Monday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Lindor managed to participate in team workouts for three straight days without suffering a setback, clearing the way for the shortstop to embark on a rehab stint. Cleveland hasn't revealed a timetable for Lindor's return to the big leagues, although manager Terry Francona doesn't believe his starting shortstop needs many at-bats in the minors, per Bell. "I just think it's more just checking the ups and downs of a game and making sure that he's okay the next day. Things you can't replicate in a workout," stated Francona. "I mean our guys have done a good job trying to do a bunch of stuff, but game conditions, it's a little different because you don't know what's coming at you and how long you sit and you run. You don't know which direction you're going, so it'll be good for him."

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Rehab could begin Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor (ankle) could join Triple-A Columbus for a rehab assignment as soon as Monday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Lindor ran the bases both Friday and Saturday. He'll work out with the team Sunday, at which point a decision about the start date for his rehab assignment will be made.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Closing in on rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor (ankle) will run the bases Saturday, and Cleveland team physicians will meet with ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson to determine whether he can begin a rehab assignment, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Lindor took part in some agility drills on the field Tuesday and managed to jog around the bases Wednesday, so it appears he's closing in on the next step in his rehab. If he is cleared for game action, he's likely looking at a late-April return from the injured list, barring any setbacks.
