Francisco Lindor went 3-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Mariners.

He also drew a walk, reaching base in all four of his plate appearances. Lindor might be stretched as a No. 3 hitter at this point in time, but you wouldn't know it by his .326/.370/.465 batting line in the early going this season. He'll go back to hitting second when Michael Brantley (shoulder) returns from the disabled list.

In the early going, the 22-year-old is hitting .368 (7-for-19). During his rookie campaign in 2015, the young shortstop slashed .313/.353/.482 with 12 homers, 51 RBI and 12 steals across 390 at-bats.

Francisco Lindor doubled in the Indians' 1-1 Cactus League tie with the Angels on Tuesday.

It was the sixth double of the spring for Lindor, who's batting .333 with a .994 OPS through 17 games in this year's Cactus League.

Lindor, who turned 22 years old in November, batted .313/.353/.482 with 12 home runs, 51 RBI, 12 stolen bases, and 50 runs scored over his first 99 major league games last season.
