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.


Francisco Lindor likely not getting promoted any time soon


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) Now that the Indians have promoted first base prospect Jesus Aguilar, attention will now turn to shortstop prospect Francisco Lindor, who is considered Cleveland's top prospect by pretty much everyone.

Lindor was one of the players featured in this week's Prospects Report. Check out the story for a more in-depth analysis on Lindor, but the short version is that I don't see the Indians promoting Lindor any time soon.

It was surprising they called up Aguilar since they have won 8 of 12 games through Wednesday and the offense is finally picking up. Even shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera is hitting, batting .467 (14 for 30) with two home runs, four doubles and five RBI in his last seven games.

Perhaps if Cabrera continued to struggle and the Indians needed some sort of spark, then bringing Lindor to the minors would be on the table. But he's only at Double-A and I could see Cleveland giving him time at Triple-A before he makes it to The Show. Lindor is really only a potential stash in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues.


Francisco Lindor struggling in Akron


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) Indians top prospect Francisco Lindor is off to a slow start at Double-A Akron. The shortstop is slated to take over that position with Cleveland when Asdrubal Cabrera is either traded this year or leaves in free agency after this season.

Lindor has just one hit in his last 10 at-bats. His stat line of .239/.320/.373 must improve for the Indians to promote him. He is still just 20 years old, however.


Francisco Lindor one of a dozen sent down by Indians


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) Stud shortstop prospect Francisco Lindor headlined a group of 12 Indians reassigned to minor league camp on Wednesday. Lindor will likely open the season at Double-A Akron, but could be promoted to Triple-A quickly thereafter.

Other notable prospects sent down were outfielders Tyler Naquin and Carlos Moncrief, first baseman Jesus Aguilar, catcher Tony Wolters and pitcher Austin Adams.


Francisco Lindor wants to be in bigs 'as soon as possible'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2014) Promising Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor is eager to show his talent at the major league level in the regular season. Asked about his timetable to reach the bigs, he told MLB.com, "as soon as possible."

Lindor, who has yet to play above Double-A Akron, is considered the team's top prospect. But he could start this season in the same place before a promotion to Triple-A Columbus.

He will likely replace Asdrubal Cabrera as the starting shortstop. Cabrera almost certainly will be a free agent after this season and could be traded at the deadline.


Francisco Lindor, Tyler Naquin receive spring invites


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2014) The Indians announced Wednesday they invited six players to spring training as non-roster invites. Among the players receiving invites were shortstop Francisco Lindor, who is considered the team's top prospect by Baseball America, and outfielder Tyler Naquin, who is considered the Indians' fourth-best prospect.

The remaining players receiving invites were catcher Jake Lowery, catcher Roberto Perez, infielder Joey Wendle and catcher Tony Wolters.

Lindor is expected to undergo his usual offseason training regimen and participate in spring training.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

He's continuing to develop exceptionally well in [Class A Advanced] Carolina, and is working through some things there. He's on a great path where he is now. We couldn't be more pleased with his development."

Lindor, 19, is batting .307 with Class A Carolina over 270 at-bats with 15 doubles, 43 runs scored and 18 stolen bases. 


Francisco Lindor playing like top prospect


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2013) Indians shortstop prospect Francisco Lindor continues to perform at the plate for Class A Carolina. Lindor has racked up six multi-hit games in his last 10 outings, including a career-high four hits Friday, batting .459 (17 for 37) in that span.

Lindor has been outstanding for Carolina since the beginning of the season. His slash line through 28 games is .367/.430/.532/.962.
