Cleveland Indians prospect Francisco Lindor was instrumental in the Carolina League’s All-Star game 12-2 romp over the California league earlier this week.
Lindor, batting second and starting at shortstop for the Carolina League team, had two at-bats which include the two-run double above and a walk.
The 19-year-old shortstop has certainly held his own during his first taste of High-A ball with the Carolina Mudcats, tallying slash line of .300/.375/.400 with one homer run and 23 RBI, and 18 stolen bases… all while playing MLB–caliber defense. While he is still several years away from making an impact with the big league squad, his progress since being selected in the first round of 2011 is promising.
