Cleveland chose to keep Lindor in the minor leagues for the entire 2014 season, despite a trade deadline deal that shipped Asdrubal Cabrera out of town. The move made sense, even if it may have disapp...

Francisco Lindor: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Lindor won't be rushed to majors despite the early-season struggles of shortstop Jose Ramirez, MLB.com reports. "We're really encouraged with the progress of his development," general manager Chris Antonetti said of Lindor. "He has a bright future in front of him that he can control, in terms of the type of player he's going to ultimately become. He's on his way to doing that. What the timetable is for his ascendance to the Major Leagues hasn't changed from what we talked about in Spring Training."

Lindor, who is hitting .400 (6-for-15) this spring after tripling Wednesday, still figures to open the season at Triple-A Columbus, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. "He seems to love to play and he's taken advantage of every opportunity," said manager Terry Francona. "We love what we're seeing. I think it would be a big, big mistake to make an evaluation on spring training. You're setting yourself up to make a mistake."

2015

2014

Lindor had another fine season splitting time between High-A Carolina (.306/.373/.410 with 20 steals in 83 games) and Double-A Akron (.289/.407/.395 with five steals in 21 games) before having his season cut short with a back injury. His glove makes him a fantastic prospect and he's certainly got plenty of time to add some pop to his bat, but it remains to be seen how much of a fantasy impact he will have, at least in that facet of his game. A lot of his value figures to hinge on his speed and power upside. Lindor offers good, albeit not great, speed and instincts on the basepaths and his power might eventually develop, but it's possible that he will peak as a 10-homer, 20-steal player with excellent defense at a premium position, offering a bit more to the Tribe in real-life value than to fantasy owners with his rotisserie contributions.

2013

Lindor is easily the best prospect in the Indians organization and one of the top prospects in baseball, though much of his value comes from his work with the glove. He held his own at Low-A Lake County despite being just 18 years old. He's got a mature approach at the plate which might enable him to add some power to his game as he physically matures, but his bat may never be anything overly special. His ceiling may very well be that of a 10-homer, 15-steal guy at shortstop. Expect some growing pains at High-A Kinston this season.

2012

The Indians selected Lindor with the eighth overall pick in the 2011 draft, and he was limited to just five games in the New York-Penn League as a 17-year-old last summer. Despite his age, Lindor already ranks as the top prospect in Cleveland's system. The switch-hitting shortstop should be a steady contact hitter and eventually develop some pop, while his plus-arm should lead him to become an above-average defensive player down the road.
