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

Lindor singled in his first at-bat, hit a sacrifice fly in his second and capped off his day with a three-run homer in the sixth. The shortstop has really turned it up a notch of late, hitting .324 with four homers and 12 RBI over his last 16 games. It was an offensive explosion for the Tribe, as they pounded out 18 hits -- including four home runs -- and 12 runs.

Francisco Lindor slugged a three-run home run in Monday's loss to the Royals, finishing 1-for-5.

The Indians had fallen behind 9-1 when Lindor brought them back in the game with a three-run home run off of Joe Blanton in the seventh inning. The 21-year-old has hit safely in six straight games and now owns a .260/.297/.377 batting line with four home runs and 15 RBI since making his major league debut on June 14.
Jul 27 - 10:17 PM

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Wednesday afternoon's win over the Brewers.

The home run was Lindor's third of the season. He's hitting a relatively unimpressive .246/.284/.349 across 126 at-bats, but there's possible value to be had here in deeper AL-only formats so long as he continues to hit in the two-hole.
Jul 22 - 6:03 PM

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a walk against the Athletics on Friday.

Lindor drew a bases-loaded walk in the sixth inning to force in a run. The 21-year-old is batting just .232/.267/.326 over his first 24 games in the majors, but Indians manager Terry Francona continues to stick with him out of the No. 2 spot in the lineup. We're not expecting much, but the cushy spot in the order makes him relevant in deeper fantasy leagues.
Jul 10 - 11:46 PM

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 and hit his second big-league homer Thursday against the Astros.

Lindor snuck one over the walk in left off Brett Oberholtzer. It gave him just his sixth runs scored in 22 games as the Indians' No. 2 hitter, which isn't encouraging at all. Still, manager Terry Francona seems awfully content to leave him there. He'll hit like a No. 2 hitter someday; it just never figured to happen as a rookie.
Jul 9 - 10:11 PM

Francisco Lindor is not in the Indians' lineup Wednesday.

It looks to be a simple day off. Mike Aviles is at second base with Lindor on the bench.
Jul 1 - 3:01 PM

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-3 and smacked his first major league home run in Wednesday's win over the Tigers.

Lindor turned on a Buck Farmer offering in the fifth inning and put it just over the right-field wall for a solo jack. He also had a single and one of his two walks came with the bases loaded, so we'll forgive him for making a big baserunning mistake in the third. Lindor sports a .243/.275/.324 batting line in his first 10 big league games.
Jun 24 - 3:36 PM

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-5 with an RBI single and a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the Cubs.

Lindor had an RBI single off Cubs starter Jake Arrieta in the fifth inning, his first major league RBI. He added his first MLB steal later in the inning. Lindor has some speed but doesn't possess the first-class bat that some of his recently promoted peers do. Still, he'll be an exciting player to watch for his defense alone for years to come.
Jun 16 - 11:46 PM

Francisco Lindor is at shortstop and batting second in his first major league start on Monday.

Lindor came off the bench Sunday since he was tardy to the ballpark, although he delivered a single in one of his at-bats late in the game. It would certainly give the young shortstop a better shot at having fantasy value if he remains in the No. 2 spot in the lineup.
Jun 15 - 4:54 PM

Francisco Lindor had a hit and a strikeout in his major league debut Sunday against the Tigers.

Lindor was held out of the starting lineup because he was a little late arriving to Comerica Park in Detroit due to travel delays. He entered as a late substitution for Mike Aviles and singled off Tigers closer Joakim Soria in the top of the ninth inning. Lindor got on base at a decent clip in the minors and he has good speed, giving the 21-year-old shortstop prospect immediate relevance at the shallowest fantasy position.
Jun 15 - 9:12 AM

Francisco Lindor is not in the Indians' lineup Sunday.

Lindor was late in getting to the ballpark and it appears manager Terry Francona wants him to catch his breath before throwing him into action. Mike Aviles is handling shortstop Sunday.
Jun 14 - 10:55 AM

Indians purchased the contract of SS Francisco Lindor from Triple-A Columbus.

The Indians couldn't wait any longer. Lindor has been spectacular of late, hitting .389. over his last eight games with Triple-A Columbus. He'll join Cleveland Sunday for their series finale against the Tigers. The 21-year-old will immediately assume the starting shortstop role upon his arrival. He projects as an average hitter with great glove work.
Jun 13 - 9:41 PM

Indians GM Chris Antonetti said Monday that Francisco Lindor has been considered for a promotion but is dealing with minor hand and core injuries.

Which could suggest that the 21-year-old shortstop prospect will be brought up as soon as he gets back to 100 percent health. Cleveland demoted Jose Ramirez to the minors on Sunday evening and will roll with Mike Aviles as the primary shortstop for now. Lindor is a .277/.353/.383 career hitter in the minors, but he's terrific defensively and his OBP and ability to steal bases would give him some immediate mixed league fantasy value.
Jun 8 - 11:46 AM

Indians prospect SS Francisco Lindor went 4-for-6 with a home run and three runs scored on Monday in a double header for Triple-A Columbus.

Lindor’s three hits in the first game included his second home run of the season, but it was just his first multi-hit game since May 17. Suffice it to say the 21-year-old hasn’t thrived this season in Triple-A as the Indians surely hoped, as he’s batting .262/.340/.374 with 14 extra-base hits and a 57.1% success rate on the base paths (8-for-14). However, Lindor’s slow start in the minors this minors shouldn’t prevent him from reaching the major leagues in the coming months.
