Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI to lead the Indians to a 9-3 win over the Tigers on Thursday.

Lindor opened the scoring in style -- going opposite field over the high outfield wall in left -- with a homer to lead off the bottom of the first inning. An inning later, he delivered a two-run double and came around to score on Jose Ramirez's homer. The home run was the first of the year for Lindor after he hit an astounding 33 dingers last season. Maybe now that the first one is out of the way the floodgates will open for the 24-year-old.

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-5 with an RBI in Wednesday's win over the Tigers.

He plated a run with a single in the fourth inning and also doubled in the contest. It was a nice sign for his fantasy owners who have been suffering through Lindor's struggles in the early part of the season. He now owns a .184 batting average with no homers, one RBI and four runs scored through the first 12 games. On the plus side he has stolen three bags already.

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 with a double and a stolen base in Saturday's loss to the Royals.

Lindor was just about the only thing remotely resembling an offensive threat for the Indians in this one. To whit, his double was the lone extra-base hit the team picked up on the afternoon. The star shortstop was caught stolen once in addition to the successful swipe, but you can't blame him for being a touch aggressive given the lack of spark around him. While his batting average sits at just .212 in the early going, he has posted multi-hit efforts in two of his last three games and his offensive output will pick up as the season unfolds.
Apr 7 - 7:25 PM

Francisco Lindor picked up a pair of hits and scored two runs in an extra-innings loss to the Angels on Wednesday.

Both of the hits were singles. Lindor was in need of a quality game, and the two-hit day "raised" his average to .192 on the season. There's certainly no reason to panic about anything he's done so far, and it's also important to remember that he's gotten off to slow starts before in his young career. He'll be among the best shortstops in the league once again assuming good health.
Apr 4 - 8:59 PM

Francisco Lindor hit his fourth homer of the season in a loss to the Reds on Thursday in the Cactus League.

Lindor's bomb came in the sixth inning, and it was a two-run shot off of Austin Brice. Yes, it's just spring training and yes the ball can really jump in the Arizona air, but Lindor looks excellent, and it's starting to look like the power show he put on in 2017 is real. He should have more luck with the batting average in 2018, too, so you'd be foolish to let Lindor get past you after the first 20 selections.
Mar 15 - 7:13 PM

Francisco Lindor stole his third base of the spring in Monday's Cactus League win over the Rangers.

Lindor went 1-for-3 with a run scored in the game and is now batting .303 with a 1.045 OPS this spring. The 24-year-old shortstop carries massive fantasy upside into the 2018 regular season after posting an .842 OPS with 33 home runs, 89 RBI, 15 stolen bases, and 99 runs scored over 159 games in 2017.
Mar 12 - 6:46 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that there have been no contract extension talks going on lately between Francisco Lindor and the Indians.

General manager Mike Chernoff’s young son spilled the beans last spring that the two sides were discussing a long-term deal, but it appears those talks haven't carried over into this offseason. The contract they discussed last year was reportedly in the seven-year, $100 million range, but Lindor turned it down. The 24-year-old will be arbitration-eligible for the first time next winter and is under team control through 2021.
Feb 8 - 5:26 PM

Francisco Lindor crunched a grand slam to lead his team to a thrilling 9-8 win over the Yankees in 13 innings on Friday.

The Indians are up two games to none in the five-game division series. Lindor came to the plate in the sixth inning with the bases loaded following a controversial hit-by-pitch that saw Lonnie Chisenhall awarded first base on what might have been a foul-tip strikeout. The young shortstop ricocheted a Chad Green pitch off the right field foul pole to wipe out a big deficit and bring the Tribe within one run. It was Lindor's only hit but it was unquestionably the biggest one of the night. The 23-year-old is already one of the best all-around players in the league.

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and three runs scored in a win over the Mariners on Saturday.

He kicked off the game with a solo home run against starter Andrew Moore. He also doubled while serving as the designated hitter in today's ballgame. Lindor is already one of the best fantasy shortstops in the league despite being just 23 years old. He wields a .277 batting average with 33 home runs, 87 RBI and 96 runs scored. He's stolen 14 bags and been caught just three times.

Francisco Lindor hit a three-run homer and walked Thursday as the Indians topped the Angels 4-1.

Lindor's homer in the fifth ended the scoring for the day, as both bullpens put up zeroes in the game. Lindor has six homers in September and 32 overall. That's five more than he hit in his first two seasons (in 994 at-bats) combined.

Francisco Lindor hit a two-run homer and walked Wednesday as the Indians edged the Angels 6-5.

Lindor is batting .325 with six homers, 17 RBI, 17 runs scored and a 5/11 K/BB ratio in 19 games from the leadoff spot this month. He's up to 75 extra-base hits for the season, which is tied for the 29th highest total ever for a shortstop.

Francisco Lindor delivered a two-run double in the bottom of the sixth inning Saturday against the Royals, one of his three hits across four at-bats.

Lindor extended his club-record streak to 10 games with an extra-base hit. He is just four short of the major league record of 14 held by Chipper Jones (2006) and Paul Waner (1927). The All-Star finished 3-for-4 with a pair of runs scored, a walk and two RBI. He has raised his average from .268 to .281 just since Sept. 6.

Francisco Lindor led off the bottom of the first with his 30th homer Tuesday against the Tigers.

It's Lindor's 11th homer in his last 23 games. His season rated as a mild disappointment up until this brilliant stretch. Now, though, the power surge has more than made up for the modest .276 average (he hit .313 and .301 in his first two seasons).

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 with four RBI and two runs scored in the Indians' defeat of the Tigers on Monday.

Lindor contributed a bases-clearing three-run triple to Cleveland's five-run outburst in the bottom of the second inning before singling and scoring on a two-run homer by Jose Ramirez in the bottom the fourth. Lindor then tallied his second RBI of the evening on a run-scoring groundout in the bottom of the fifth. The young shortstop has played a key role in the Indians' ridiculous 19-game winning streak.
