Indians Likely to Start Season Without All-Star Shortstop Francisco Lindor

10 February, 2019, 21:28 | Author: Candice Daniels
  • Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor will be sidelined for seven to nine weeks with a strained right calf

Hopefully for the Indians' sake, Lindor will be 100 percent and ready to go for Opening Day against the Minnesota Twins on March 28. A three time All Star, he hit.277 with 38 home runs and 92 runs batted in last season, so he will be missed at shortstop. Rookie Yu Chang is listed as Lindor's backup, but infielder Jose Ramirez has plenty of experience at shortstop.

Remember, that's game activity, not big league action. Max Moroff, acquired from the Pirates this winter, is another option, as is minor league journeyman Eric Stamlets.

The Francisco Lindor injury is devastating for baseball, especially when its free agents have not signed and there is a week until Spring Training kicks off in Arizona and Florida, but the Indians will be fine. Lindor led the team in hits and doubles past year.

The All-Star shortstop had a career year in 2018. He stole 25 bases in 35 attempts and posted a career-high.871 OPS.

Met Office forecaster John West said: "We are seeing some strong winds, severe gales particularly off the coasts and over higher ground".

Joyce played in just 83 games for the Athletics last season as he contended with back injuries. He signed a one-year, $10.5 million deal with Cleveland in January, and will be arbitration eligible in both 2020 and 2021.

The Indians have won the American League Central for three straight seasons, and it does not seem like they will be slowing down based off of the other teams in their division. His defensive range is limited, but he could fit nicely in a platoon with right-handed hitting Jordan Luplow, who was acquired from Pittsburgh in an earlier offseason trade.

Prior to joining Oakland, Joyce spent six seasons in Tampa Bay where he slugged.435 with 76 home runs and 280 RBI, earning an All-Star bid in 2011.
