Francisco Lindor went 4-for-4 with three doubles in Sunday's 7-3 loss to the A's.

Lindor is up to 28 doubles on the season, now. His four-hit performance on Sunday was his first such showing of the campaign. The dynamic shortstop is slashing .261/.319/.470 with 14 homers, 43 RBI and four steals in 361 at-bats overall.
Jul 16 - 7:18 PM

Francisco Lindor was hitless in four at-bats in Saturday's loss in Oakland.

Lindor has managed just one single across eight at-bats since re-joining his teammates after the All-Star festivities in Miami. He'll get it going sooner rather than later, and he has the ability to pick up hits in bunches. Lindor and his teammates will also benefit by the lack of travel early in the week, as their next series shifts just across the Bay Bridge to San Francisco starting on Monday.
Jul 16 - 2:59 AM

Francisco Lindor went 3-for-5 with a triple, three RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base in the Indians' 11-2 drubbing of the Tigers on Friday.

Lindor smacked a two-run triple in the sixth inning and plated another run with an RBI single in the seventh. The three-hit effort was his second in his last three games. Perhaps more noteworthy, the stolen base was just his fourth of the year, and first since May 30, after stealing a combined 31 bases in his first two seasons. The 23-year-old is hitting .256/.315/.465 through 83 games overall.
Jul 7 - 11:45 PM

Francisco Lindor went 3-for-5 and drove in two runs in a loss to the Padres on Wednesday.

He plated the Tribe's first run with a single in the third inning, then drove in their second and final run with a double in the fifth. Lindor added another double in the game and now owns a .252 batting average with 14 home runs, 40 RBI, 45 runs and three steals on the season. His batting average and speed are well below his career norms but his power is up. He is already within one dinger of his career high.
Jul 6 - 12:20 AM

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Wednesday's win over the Orioles.

He smoked a two-run bomb in the fifth inning and added an RBI single in the ninth. The 23-year-old star has seen declines in his batting average and speed this year but he is making up for that by adding power. Last year he had a .301 batting average with 15 homers, 99 runs, 78 RBI and 19 stolen bases. This year he is sitting on a .256 batting average with 14 home runs, 42 runs, 33 RBI and only three stolen bases in 305 plate appearances.
Jun 22 - 12:15 AM

While his teammates were combining for 12 runs and 17 hits, Francisco Lindor went 0-for-6 on Monday.

Lindor is 3-for-20 in four games as a leadoff man, but since the Indians have won all four of those games, he might stay there for a spell. However, his OBP is down to .312 at the moment. He's been much more of a power hitter than an on-base guy this year.
Jun 19 - 11:25 PM

Francisco Lindor finished 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader in Minnesota.

Lindor has heated up over the past week, going 6-for-17 with two doubles, a home run and four runs scored. After a slow start to the month he is picking up the pace, and it's no surprise that as he starts to hit the Indians are on the rise in the standings.
Jun 18 - 3:19 AM

Francisco Lindor went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Sunday's win over the White Sox.

Lindor notched an RBI double in the seventh inning to boost the lead to 4-2 and give the Indians a little insurance. It was his 17th double of the season. We will see if this double can get him going, as he entered Sunday's action having picked up six hits in his last 41 at-bats (.146 average). Overall, Lindor is hitting .259/.323/.496 with 12 homers and 37 RBI in 59 games played.
Jun 11 - 6:26 PM

Francisco Lindor was hitless in three at-bats with a walk in Saturday's game against the White Sox, dropping his average to .259.

Lindor has managed just six hits over his past 41 at-bats (.146) across the past 11 outings. While the 23-year-old is struggling, Lindor has too much potential to consider reserving. "I think you'll see he's too good a hitter not to get hot," manager Terry Francona said. "And this is probably the lowest he's been average-wise. That's pretty good."
Jun 11 - 1:17 AM

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 with a double in Wednesday's loss to the Rockies.

The Indians were unable to put together any sort of sustained offensive push in this one, falling by a score of 8-1. Lindor's double off Kyle Freeland was his 16th of the season and his second double in his last three games. Overall, the 23-year-old shortstop is hitting .267/.331/.511 with 12 homers and 26 RBI through 221 at-bats.
Jun 7 - 6:41 PM

Francisco Lindor was hitless in four at-bats in Tuesday's game against the Rockies in Denver.

Lindor has cobbled together just four hits in 30 at-bats (.133) over his past eight games to drop his average from .283 to .263 just since May 28. He has also managed just nine RBI over his past 32 games, as he is really struggling at the plate right now and it's reached long-term proportions. Lindor has the potential to be one of the best all-around players in baseball.
Jun 7 - 12:40 AM

Francisco Lindor went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Athletics.

His fourth-inning shot off starter Sean Manaea produced the Indians' only run of the ballgame. It was Lindor's 12th home run of the season. His career high in homers is 15, which he set in 158 games last year. He has a .276 batting average with 36 runs scored and 25 RBI in 49 games. Still just 23 years old, Lindor is already one of the best all-around players in baseball.

Francisco Lindor is not in the Indians' lineup Sunday.

It's a rare day off for the star shortstop. Erik Gonzalez is filling in.
May 28 - 11:45 AM

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in a loss to the Royals on Saturday.

Lindor took Royals starter Jason Vargas deep as the second batter the southpaw faced, his 11th homer of the season. He also attempted to start a rally in the ninth inning with a two-out double, but he was stranded on second base to end the game. Lindor quietly has a 12-game hitting streak going, leaving him with a .283/.346/.545 line, 11 homers, 24 RBI and 33 runs scored overall.
