Indians call Francisco Lindor to roster


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2015) The Indians announced that they have called up infielder Francisco Lindor to the 25-man roster from Triple-A Columbus.

Indians expected to promote Francisco Lindor on Sunday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/13/2015) The Indians have confirmed that shortstop prospect Francisco Lindor will be promoted from Triple-A Columbus for Sunday's series-finale in Detroit. 

Lindor, MLB.com's No. 4 prospect in all of baseball, owns a .279/.346/.398 batting line through 57 games with Columbus this season. 

Meanwhile, Indians shortstops have combined to hit just .204 and one home run this year.  


Report: Indians to promote Zach Walters, not Francisco Lindor


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2015) The Indians are set to bypass premier prospect Francisco Lindor and promote Zach Walters from Triple-A Columbus to replace the dispatched Jose Ramirez, per MLB Network Insider Ken Rosenthal.

It remains to be seen how much playing time Walters receives. Mike Aviles has been hitting well and will likely now start at short.

Walters has not hit well in the minors. He has just two hits in his last 25 at-bats and has fanned 27 times in 107 at-bats this season. His noted power has also been missing - he has just two home runs.

Lindor has nine hits in his last six games to raise his average to .269. The Indians have denied any intention of holding him back to prevent his arbitration clock from starting.


Antonetti: Super Two status no factor in that of Francisco Lindor


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2015) Indians general manager Chris Antonetti has claimed that preventing premier shortstop prospect Francisco Lindor from reaching Super Two status is not why he has yet to be promoted from Triple-A Columbus, per the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

The struggling Indians are struggling partly because current shortstop Jose Ramirez has been weaker defensively than expected and a disaster offensively. He has three extra-base hits all year and owns a slash line of .179/.222/.238.

The 21-year-old Lindor, however, has not been tearing it up for the Clippers. He has started slow at every level and the same has held true in 2015. He does have a six-game hitting streak, but that has served to raise his average to just .256.

The Indians have claimed that Lindor needs more seasoning in the minors.


Indians top prospect SS Francisco Lindor progressing in Triple-A


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/27/2015) Although Indians general manager Chris Antonnetii is happy with the progress of shortstop Francisco Lindor in Triple-A, he said the organization's top prospect still needs more experience in the minors before he gets a call up to the major leagues, reports the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

MLB.com recently ranked Lindor as the fourth-best prospect in baseball.

Lindor is hitting .302 in 63 at-bats in Triple-A this year, with three doubles, eight runs scored and six stolen bases.


Indians GM: Francisco Lindor needs 'experience' to get called up


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Indians general manager Chris Antonetti told MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM that prized prospect Francisco Lindor needs "just experience" to get called up.

"He's got an incredibly bright future," Antonetti said.

Lindor, 21, was reassigned to minor-league camp on March 26, before the start of the regular season. He will open the season at Triple-A Columbus. In 2014, Lindor hit .273 with five homers and 14 RBI in 38 games at Triple-A.

"The only thing he needs to work on is experience, he just needs to play," manager Terry Francona said. He's probably an injury away."


Indians' Lindor among players assigned to minors Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) The Indians announced Monday they optioned pitcher C.C. Lee to Triple-A Columbus. They also reassigned seven players to minor-league camp, including top prospect Francisco Lindor.

Also sent to minor-league camp were infielder Audy Ciriaco, outfielder Destin Hood, pitcher Dustin Molleken, catcher Adam Moore, pitcher Bryan Price and pitcher Michael Roth.


Twins' Byron Buxton named No. 1 prospect by MLB.com


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2015) Twins outfielder Byron Buxton was named the top prospect in baseball by MLB.com Friday.

Buxton played just 31 games in 2014 due to wrist and concussion issues and finished with a .240/.313/.405 line along with four home runs, 16 RBI and six stolen bases in 121 at-bats with high Class A Fort Myers. He also went 0 for 3 at the Double-A level. Buxton is making his second straight appearance atop MLB.com's top prospect list.

The rest of MLB.com's top-five prospects (in order) are Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant, Astros shotstop Carlos Correa, Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor and Cubs shortstop Addison Russell. None of the quartet appeared in the top five of last year's MLB.com prospect list, though all four cracked the top 12.


Indians prospect Francisco Lindor set to open season in minors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) Indians manager Terry Francona said Wednesday top prospect Francisco Lindor will not be the team's starting shortstop out of spring training, per The Plain Dealer. Francona said Lindor still needs time to develop in the minors.

Francona added he is also satisified having to open the season with Jose Ramirez and Mike Aviles at shortstop.

Lindor has played just 38 games above Double-A. He hit .276 with 11 home runs, 16 doubles, 62 RBI, 75 runs and 28 stolen bases in 126 games between Double-A and Triple-A last season.


Francisco Lindor won't come up this year


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/7/2014) Indians manager Terry Francona told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that the team will not be promoting any more minor leaguers this season, including top prospect Francisco Lindor. Francona plans on sticking with Jose Ramirez as his starting shortstop, leaving Lindor to wait until 2015 to potentially make his major league debut.

Lindor finished the season at Triple-A Columbus, batting .273 with five home runs, 14 RBI and three stolen bases in 38 games there.


GM: Francisco Lindor to stay in Columbus for now


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Indians prized prospect Francisco Lindor will remain at Triple-A Columbus for now despite the deal that sent starting shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera to Washington.

That's the word from general manager Chris Antonetti, per the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram.

The shortstop duties will be handled by veteran Mike Aviles and rookie Jose Ramirez. The 20-year-old Lindor has been hitting well since his promotion to Columbus with 10 hits in 31 at-bats and a .400 on-base percentage.


Francisco Lindor might be on verge of promotion to Indians


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) The conventional wisdom is that veteran Mike Aviles or young Jose Ramirez will assume the starting shortstop job with the Indians if Asdrubal Cabrera is traded at the deadline, as has been rumored. But stud prospect Francisco Lindor could be throwing himself into the conversation.

The 20-year-old Lindor has raised his level of production since his promotion to Triple-A Columbus. He has 10 hits in 32 at-bats with two home runs and four RBI. He has scored seven runs in seven games.

The Indians could also be tempted to bring him up to spur fan interest, though it remains likely they wait until September. They rank second-last in the major leagues in average attendance per game.


Indians haven't talked about promotion for Francisco Lindor


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Indians shortstop prospect Francisco Lindor hit a pair of home runs Saturday for Triple-A Columbus. The 20-year-old infielder is batting .333 (6 for 18) with one stolen base, three walks, four extra-base hits and five runs in five games since being promoted from Double-A Akron.

Indians manager Terry Francona said Sunday the team has not had any internal discussions about bringing Lindor to the majors later this season, per MLB.com.

"We haven't even talked about it," Francona said. "He's on a pretty fast track right now. ... I think the organization views Lindor as a mature enough kid that he'll probably handle whatever. So, I think [being in Triple-A] is good for him. He's a pretty young kid, but he's a very mature kid."


Indians not ready to promote Francisco Lindor


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) If Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera needs a stint on the disabled list due to a back injury, the team will not promote top prospect Francisco Lindor to replace him on the roster, according to The Plain Dealer. Lindor was just promoted to Triple-A Akron Monday.

Francisco Lindor promoted to Triple-A Columbus


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Indians shortstop prospect Francisco Lindor was promoted to Triple-A Columbus Monday.

Lindor went 0 for 4 Monday for the second consecutive game, but he entered play Monday with a .281/.356/.393 line and 25 stolen bases in 338 at-bats with Double-A Akron. Lindor was named the sixth-best prospect in baseball in Baseball America's midseason update earlier in July.


Francisco Lindor to be out at least a week


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2014) Indians premier prospect Francisco Lindor will be sidelined for 7-10 days with a non-displaced nasal fracture. He was hit in the face with a grounder on Wednesday for Double-A Akron.

The shortstop owns a .283 batting average with six home runs, 43 RBI and 19 stolen bases. He is consdered the heir apparent to Asdrubal Cabrera, who is destined for free agency after this season and could be traded at the deadline if the Indians fall out of contention.


Francisco Lindor exits after taking a ball to the face


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Indians infielder Francisco Lindor had to leave Wednesday's game after a ball hit him in the face.

Lindor was hit while playing defense. A hard ground ball took a bad hop, and hit him square in the face. Lindor left the game, and was immediately replaced. He underwent X-rays shortly after the event, but the team won't have the results until after the game. There were no initial signs of a concussion or broken bones, however. The 20-year-old is considered one of the best prospects in baseball.
