Francisco Lindor went 3-for-4 with three RBI and a run scored against the Brewers on Tuesday.

Lindor had an RBI single in the second inning before knocking a two-run double in the fifth. The three-hit game was his third in his last four games as the 21-year-old continues to get acclimated at the major league level. Lindor is now batting .306/.341/.433 through 63 games.

Francisco Lindor finished 3-for-5 with a home run in the Indians' 4-3 win over the Yankees on Sunday.

Lindor singled in the second, singled again in the sixth, and then went deep of Dellin Betances in the top of the eighth. It was only the third home run that Betances has allowed this season. Lindor is begging to show signs of rapid development, now with a .298/.332/.424 batting line, seven home runs, 27 RBI, and 28 home runs in his first 61 major league games.

Francisco Lindor had a nice day at the dish in Saturday's loss to the Yankees, going 3-for-4 with a double and a solo home run.

Lindor also scored both of the Tribe's runs on the afternoon. He got the scoring started in the first inning, launching a Luis Severino offering deep into the right field seats. The 21-year-old has been tremendous thus far in his brief major league career, slashing .292/.327/.408 with six homers and 26 RBI.

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-3 with a double and a walk in Saturday's loss to the Twins.

Lindor and the offense were almost completely stymied by Twins starter Tyler Duffey. The 21-year-old shortstop was the only Indian to manage an extra-base hit with Duffey on the mound. He's been swinging a hot bat of late, with multi-hit efforts in seven of his last 10 games. On the whole, he's hitting .296/.329/.408 with five homers and 24 RBI over 213 at-bats. For comparison's sake, he was slashing just .223/.257/.311 heading into the All-Star Break. Like we said, hot bat.

Francisco Lindor went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Thursday's win over the A's.

The rookie shortstop had a three-run homer and four RBI in his last game, Wednesday against the Royals. His fireworks weren't as bright tonight, but this was another promising showing by Lindor, who is really heating up. He's hit safely in 15 of his last 18 games to raise his average from .205 to .264. During that stretch, he's gone 25-for-76 (.329) with 11 runs, 13 RBI, four homers and a .358 OBP.

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.
Jul 29 - 3:30 PM

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.
