Welcome to the Tribe: Indians rookies become cheerleaders

Oh, it looks like the Cleveland Indians have found themselves a cheerleader -- or four. Photos surfaced on social media Sunday of Tribe rookie infielders Francisco Lindor and Giovanny Urshela, as well as pitchers Austin Adams and Cody Anderson in a different type of uniform for the team's fantasy football league. Lindor, who's been a phenomenal addition to the team since being called...

Lindor Living Up to High Expectations

If Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor is not careful, he could end up in the debate for American League Rookie of the Year. Actually, since the All-Star break, Lindor has looked more like a seasoned league MVP than a player getting his first taste of Major League Baseball action. Lindor certainly has more to learn, as any 21-year-old would. However, he seems so far ahead of the game...

Francisco Lindor catching up to Carlos Correa, even if you’ve never heard of him

When Carlos Correa made his major league debut for the first place Astros in June and crushed two home runs his first week, many dubbed him the next Alex Rodriguez and closed their minds to the AL Rookie of the Year race. The 20 year old, slick fielding shortstop was the best we were going to see this year without question. Francisco Lindor would like you to open your minds and your...

Cleveland Indians: Lindor answering questions for 2016

The Cleveland Indians will head into the offseason with a number of questions for 2016, and although the Tribe certainly needs to look outside of their organization for answers, they may be able to find help within the organization as well. The biggest problem heading into 2016 seems to be the offense. The offensive problems have spanned all of 2015 (and frankly, long before that...

Francisco Lindor & The Sacrifice Bunt

It took him a few weeks, but after bottoming out with a line of .205/.239/.253 on July 7th, Francisco Lindor has been largely unstoppable, smashing a .343/.377/.489 line while consistently providing incredible defense at the most important position on the field. In that span, he’s hit four home runs and stole a couple bases, providing a positive performance in every facet of the...

Indians defense is best in MLB with Francisco Lindor; 28th without him

As Michael Bode wrote today, a lot goes into a pitcher’s success beyond how well he throws the ball. The other guys playing defense have to catch the ball when a hitter smacks it their way, and their performance can drastically alter how many hits and runs the opposing team totals. Defense has been a sore spot for the Cleveland Indians for a while now, but the call-ups of shortstop...

The Francisco Lindor Era begins in Cleveland

The year of the prospect debut continues. Now that the Super Two deadline has come and gone, prospects are getting called up left and right. This past Sunday, we were treated to two debut events simultaneously, when both Byron Buxton and Francisco Lindor joined their respective major league clubs. I covered Buxton yesterday, so today, […]

Lindor Truffle: Master Shortstop Baseballatier

Francisco Lindor’s first MLB start may have been delayed due to the Monday night game between the Cleveland Indians and Chicago Cubs being rained out in Chicago, but the day of rest may give fans a chance to catch up on what to expect from the Indians’ most hyped prospect to come out of the minor leagues since perhaps Manny Ramirez in 1993. In 2011, it had been eleven years...

Indians promoting top prospect Francisco Lindor

After a false alarm last weekend, the day is finally here: No. 1 Cleveland Indians prospect Francisco Lindor will be promoted on Sunday. Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Passan was the first to report the news;’s Jordan Bastian later confirmed. Last week, when Jose Ramirez was sent to Triple-A Columbus (along with Lonnie Chisenhall), many expected Lindor to be called up in his...

Tribe prospect Francisco Lindor pulled from game after taking a ball to the face

Tribe uber-prospect Francisco Lindor had to leave the Akron RubberDucks afternoon game on Wednesday after a bad hop from a sharply hit ball hit him in the face. Lindor laid face-down on the infield for several minutes while trainers attended to him. The ball seemed to hit the lip of the grass and shot upward as Lindor was moving towards second base to field it. He was wearing sunglasses...
