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.

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 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.

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.

Francisco Lindor homered for the second consecutive game on Sunday, powering the Indians to a 3-2 victory over the Orioles and their 18th consecutive victory.

Francisco Lindor crushed his 28th home run of the season as the Indians topped the Orioles 4-2 to earn their 17th consecutive victory.

Lindor tagged Darren O'Day for the solo shot in the seventh inning that increased the Tribe's lead to 4-2 and capped the scoring in the contest. The hard-hitting shortstop is having a terrific season atop the Indians' lineup, slashing .272/.333/.490 with 28 long balls and 72 RBI.

Francisco Lindor went 3-for-6 with a triple, homer and three runs scored in a lopsided win over the White Sox on Thursday.

It's often the triple that gives hitters the hardest time in their pursuit of a cycle, but Lindor got that out of the way with a leadoff triple to start the game. He then hit a solo dinger in the second inning and later singled but couldn't find that elusive double to complete the feat. Still, nobody will complain about his final line, and the 23-year-old is having another terrific offensive season overall. Through Thursday, Lindor is batting .270/.331/.484 with 27 homers, 71 RBI, 79 runs scored and 12 steals this season.
Fri, Sep 8, 2017 12:55:00 AM

Francisco Lindor went 1-for-4 with a homer and a walk on Sunday against Detroit.

The homer gives Lindor 26 on the season. As a prospect, the switch-hitting shortstop was seen as a double-digit homer player, at best, but he's added strength and loft to his swing. After a slow start, he now has a line of .270/.321/.480 while playing some of the best shortstop in baseball.
Sun, Sep 3, 2017 04:32:00 PM

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Yankees.

All Indians in this one, as they jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning and steadily built on that advantage as the afternoon progressed. Lindor provided the cherry on top of the sundae with his solo home run in the eighth inning. That tater made the score 9-1. For the campaign as a whole, the shortstop is slashing .271/.327/.481 with 25 homers, 65 RBI and 10 steals across 531 at-bats. He has five multi-hit performances in his last seven games.
