7/27 Recap: Anderson’s Luck Runs Out, Royals Keep Winning

Player of the Game Francisco Lindor gave the Indians a small sign of hope by taking advantage of some late wildness from starter Edinson Volquez. The Royals righty walked Giovanny Urshela and Jason Kipnis to start the seventh and was replaced by Joe Blanton. Lindor took the first pitch from Blanton out of the ballpark to right center to bring home three, more than the Indians have...

Top Indians prospect Bradley Zimmer earns promotion to Double-A

With Francisco Lindor now in the major leagues (and already making a major impact on the Tribe defense), many Cleveland Indians fans are likely out of tune with the top prospects in the organization.

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...

Francisco Lindor; The Wizard

A wizard is upon us, and his name is Francisco Lindor. Nicknamed the wizard due to his impressive defensive prowess, Francisco Lindor is now an everyday Major League player. The expectations are lofty despite his young age, but some see Lindor as the next Omar Vizquel both with the stick and glove. The smooth fielding shortstop has incredible range backed with an even better arm...

Lindor Truffle: Master Shortstop Baseballatier

Francisco Lindor trips over base on first MLB hit (Video)

The ball was hit into the right field corner and Lindor thought he could make it to second, but that fell through after Lindor suffered the faceplant when rounding first. Lindor joked that he was interfered...

Is Cleveland Being Too Conservative With Francisco Lindor?

There’s a lot going on with the Cleveland Indians right now. They’re not playing to expectations, but the expectations remain. The team has the highest projected rest-of-season win percentage, and our playoff odds have them just a hair underneath the Kansas City Royals, who have played far better than Cleveland this year. The Indians haven’t […]
