Indians' Francisco Lindor: Cracks third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Reds. He was also caught stealing.

Since getting off to a 2-for-14 start, Lindor has gone 9-for-30 with three home runs. He's still looking for his first stolen base -- Monday's attempt was his first -- and Cleveland is not running a lot as a team early on. That said, it would still be a surprise if Lindor didn't end up with a handful of steals by the end of the campaign.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Goes deep Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's victory over Minnesota.

Lindor accounted for the only runs of the game with a two-run blast in the third inning. The homer was Lindor's second of the season and fourth extra-base hit across 29 at-bats. He is batting only .207 (6-for-29) on the campaign, though he has driven in six runs in seven contests.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Crushes first 2020 homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 3-for-8 with a home run, a double, three runs scored and three RBI as Cleveland swept the White Sox in Tuesday's doubleheader.

The All-Star shortstop entered Tuesday's action 2-for-14 with one extra-base hit and five strikeouts through three games, so his performance in the the twin bill was a welcome sight. Lindor will look to build on that effort in Wednesday's series finale.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Likely to bat third in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Terry Francona said Sunday that he thinks Lindor will hit third, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Lindor batted almost exclusively from the leadoff spot last season, but he could improve his RBI potential if he indeed gets slotted into the third spot in the lineup. Francona said that Cesar Hernandez is a likely candidate to replace Lindor as the leadoff hitter. Lindor slashed .284/.335/.518 with 32 home runs and 74 RBI for Cleveland last season.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Hot hitting in Cactus League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 12-for-30 (.400 average) with three home runs and 10 RBI across 10 Cactus League games before the MLB suspended its season.

After his name cropped up in trade rumors all winter, Lindor elected to break off talks with the Indians about a possible contract extension during spring training. The uncertainty about his future in Cleveland clearly didn't impact Lindor on the field, as he immediately caught fire at the plate during the spring and played his usual stellar defense at shortstop. A trade may still be in the cards if Cleveland's season heads south quickly, but Lindor's fantasy value shouldn't change much for better or worse if he ends up moving elsewhere.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Breaks off contract talks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor suspended extension talks with Cleveland on Monday, Jason Lloyd of The Athletic reports.

The star shortstop could still sign a deal with the Indians following the season, as he still has two more years left on his contract, but for now he'll focus on his performance on the field. The lack of an extension seemingly increases the prospects of Lindor getting traded, though it's hard to say how a hypothetical trade would affect Lindor's fantasy value, as he currently plays in a middle-of-the-road lineup in a park that plays pretty close to neutral.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Batting order discussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor and manager Terry Francona might have a discussion this spring about possibly moving Lindor out of the leadoff spot, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports.

Francona cautioned that nothing was imminent about a batting order change. "I'm not trying to move him out of that spot," said Francona. "I want to be open to what could be our best lineup. I don't think anybody knows that until you have a better idea of what your team is going to look like." If Lindor were to move down to second or third in the order, he would have more RBI opportunities, perhaps at the expense of fewer plate appearances along with fewer chances to run.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Gets big one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor and the Indians avoided arbitration Friday by agreeing to a one-year, $17.5 million deal, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

The contract is the second-highest ever for a player in his second season of arbitration eligibility, trailing only Mookie Betts' $20 million contract from last season. It's still a bargain given Lindor's impressive talent, as he hit .284/.335/.518 with 32 homers and 22 steals while playing strong defense at shortstop last season.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Cranks 32nd home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 2-for-4 with a home run, an RBI and a run scored in the team's 8-2 loss to the Nationals on Sunday.

Lindor capped off yet another stellar year as he hit at least 30 home runs for the third consecutive season. The 2011 first-round pick finished the season with a .284 batting average which was his highest since 2016 but also only finished with 74 RBI and played in 143 games which both were his lowest totals since his rookie season in 2015. The 25-year-old shortstop led the team in batting average and hits in 2019 and will continue to be a cornerstone for this franchise for years to come.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Racks up three hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 3-for-5 with two doubles and two runs scored in a victory over Detroit on Thursday.

Lindor continued his strong 2019 campaign with his 13th three-hit game of the season. The 25-year-old missed the first three weeks of the season with calf and ankle injuries but has played in every game since his return, slashing .292/.343/.533 with 31 homers, 70 RBI and 21 stolen bases.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Swats solo homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Twins.

Lindor gave Cleveland a 4-1 lead with his fifth-inning shot, his 29th of the season. The superstar shortstop has already hit three long balls this month and should soon reach the 30-homer mark for the third straight season. His current .888 OPS would be a new career best.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Knocks in two in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 2-for-6 with a solo home run and an RBI single in Friday's 6-2 win over the Twins.

Lindor opened the scoring with a solo shot off Twins starter Michael Pineda in the third inning. He later added a bases-loaded single in the 11th as part of a four-run rally. The shortstop is up to 28 homers, 66 RBI, and 85 runs scored while batting .297/.348/.536 in 564 plate appearances this season. Lindor has also added 20 stolen bases.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Smacks 27th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Lindor took Dylan Cease deep in the first inning to record his 27th home run of the season. He now has six long balls in his last 11 games, scoring nine runs and driving in 11 in that span. The impressive stretch has only added to his standout season, as he has swiped 20 bases while also hitting .297/.349/.535 across 549 plate appearances.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Secures 20-20 season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 2-for-4 with a walk, stolen base, RBI and two runs Monday in the Indians' 11-3 triumph over the White Sox.

Lindor's stolen base in the first inning was his 20th of the season, locking him in as a member of the 20-20 club for the second year in a row. The achievement is remarkable enough, but is rendered even more impressive considering Lindor didn't make his 2019 debut until April 20 while tending to a right calf strain and left ankle sprain suffered in the spring. Lindor should have ample opportunity to boost his counting stats throughout September, as he's in no danger of missing starts due to rest with the Indians locked in a tight battle for one of the American League's two available wild-card spots.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Hits late two-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer in a 9-6 loss to the Rays on Saturday.

Lindor hit the two-run shot to right field during the eighth inning to help spark a late rally, but the Indians were unable to overcome a seven-run deficit. The 25-year-old has a .299/.350/.537 slash line with 26 home runs, 62 RBI and 19 stolen bases in 117 contests.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Drives in two during win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a sacrifice fly in a 2-0 victory over the Tigers on Thursday.

It's not an overwhelmingly impressive stat line, but Lindor drove in the only two runs of the game, and he extended his hitting streak to 11 contests. Despite an early-season injury, Lindor is a stolen base away from his second straight 20/20 season. He is batting .301 with 25 home runs, 60 RBI, 79 runs and 19 steals in 479 at-bats this season.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Posts homer, steal in three-hit day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, a double, a stolen base and an additional run Wednesday in the Indians' 4-2 win over the Tigers.

The stolen base was Lindor's first since Aug. 8, ending a season-long 17-game streak without a theft. Even as his activity on the basepaths declined, Lindor continued to provide value for fantasy managers with a .278 average, three home runs, 11 runs and nine RBI over that stretch. He'll be back in action for Thursday's series finale, manning shortstop and batting leadoff like he normally does.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Delivers two-run blast
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's win over Kansas City.

Lindor left the yard in the second inning, extending his team's lead to four. Following Friday's performance, the 25-year-old has hit safely in six straight contests. He's slashing .297/.351/.517 over 110 matchups in 2019.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Breaks homerless streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in an 8-4 victory against the Yankees on Sunday.

The 25-year-old saw his average dip below .300, but he hit his first homer since Aug. 4. If Lindor can catch fire again in the power category, he could still reach the 30-homer plateau. He's done that each of the last two years, but with his early-season injury during 2019, it would be an even greater accomplishment this summer. He is batting .299 with 21 home runs, 53 RBI, 73 runs and 18 steals in 442 at-bats this season.

Indians' Francisco Lindor: Collects three RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindor went 3-for-5 with two doubles, three RBI and a caught stealing in Tuesday's 7-6 loss to the Red Sox.

Lindor came through with a clutch game-tying double during the ninth inning, but he took himself out of scoring position as he was thrown out trying to steal third base. The 25-year-old has a modest seven-game hit streak in which he is 9-for-27 with five doubles and seven walks.
