Francisco Lindor doubled twice as part of a 3-for-6 night on Tuesday as the Indians routed the Reds.

Cleveland's offense managed 13 runs on 17 hits -- with 10 of those runs and 14 of those hits coming against Cincinnati starter Alfredo Simon. That follows a 15-6 explosion against Reds pitching on Monday. If only Lindor and the Indians could play the cross-state club all the time.
May 17 - 9:47 PM

Francisco Lindor had an RBI single and a run scored in a win over the Astros on Tuesday.

Lindor knocked an RBI single in the eighth inning and came around to score on a Mike Napoli double. He's now got 13 RBI and 20 runs scored through 30 games. The 22-year-old is hitting an impressive .310/.372/.405 in his first full MLB campaign.
May 10 - 11:02 PM

Francisco Lindor went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer and three runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Tigers.

Lindor's long three-run homer in the bottom of the fifth inning off of Justin Verlander effectively ended the game, extending the Indians' lead to 7-2 at the time. It was the young shortstop's second longball of the season and pushed his RBI total up to 12. With a .315/.380/.438 batting line in his first 23 games, Lindor has certainly avoided a sophomore slump to this point.
May 3 - 9:41 PM

Francisco Lindor went 3-for-4 with three singles and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Tigers.

Lindor did not have an extra-base hit on the afternoon, but with his trio of singles, he brought his average up to a shiny .323. The 22-year-old's triple-slash as a whole now stands at .323/.391/.419. In addition to those marks, he has stolen three bases, scored 12 runs and doubled three times.
Apr 24 - 4:53 PM

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.
Apr 19 - 9:23 PM

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Rays.

Lindor's dinger was his first of the season and gave him his first RBI for the 2016 campaign. The homer also served as his first extra-base hit. 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.

Apr 8 - 7:51 PM

Francisco Lindor doubled in Thursday’s win over the Reds in Cactus League action.

Lindor mostly batted second in his excellent rookie season, but it appears that he's under consideration to bat third at least during Michael Brantley’s absence. Terry Francona had Rajai Davis batting leadoff and Jason Kipnis in the No. 2 spot on Thursday.
Mar 31 - 5:45 PM

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. We're expecting a little regression out of the 2015 American League Rookie of the Year runner-up, but he should still be a productive performer at fantasy baseball's shallowest position. 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.

Lindor teed off on a Chris Sale offering for a solo homer in the seventh inning. The bomb was his 10th of the season and pushed his RBI total to 42. He's working on a seven-game hitting streak, with homers in two of his last three games. The 21-year-old rookie maintains a strong .319/.358/.485 triple-slash over 332 at-bats.
