Past Fantasy Outlooks
Lindsey struggled at Triple-A El Paso after being dealt to the Padres in July as part of the Huston Street deal with the Angels, hitting just .219/.270/.315 with two homers in 41 games. He has been young for his level throughout his development, but Lindsey became the Angels' top prospect by default during the season, as C.J. Cron was promoted to Anaheim and the farm system was already thinned out by other trades in recent years. Although his performance fell off with the promotion to the Pacific Coast League last season, Lindsey showed increased power in his first taste of Double-A in 2013 (17 homers, .441 slugging percentage), and he's been developing a more discerning eye at the plate as he's moved through the minors. He could see some time with the major league club this season, though Jedd Gyorko figures to stick at second with Will Middlebrooks coming over in the offseason to fill a hole at third.
Lindsey showed all the hallmarks of a promising prospect in 2013, as he posted a solid line of .274/.339/.441 last season with Double-A Arkansas. More encouraging than the raw numbers, however, is how he improved from his 2012 season. Lindsey raised his walk rate and improved his isolated power in his 2013 campaign. While there are no immediate plans for him to see time at the big league level in 2014, he could begin to move through the ranks quickly if he continues to deliver a similar combination of plate discipline and pop as he advances in the upper levels of the minors.
Lindsey, a supplemental pick in the first round of the 2010 draft, slashed .289/.328/.408 in 589 plate appearances for High-A Inland Empire last season while playing second base. While those numbers don't compare favorably to what he did in rookie ball during the 2011 campaign, you really couldn't ask for much more from a 20-year-old middle infielder who completely skipped Low-A. Plate discipline is a bit of an issue for Lindsey, but that should improve as he continues to develop power, and he figures to start the 2013 season either back with High-A Inland Empire or with Double-A Arkansas.
A big 2011 season helped Lindsey become one of the Angels’ top prospects. The 2010 supplemental first rounder had a big season with Orem in the Pioneer League, riding 43 extra-base hits to an impressive .987 OPS. Lindsey is just 20 and needs to improve his on-base skills, but as a shortstop with power potential, he’ll be a guy to keep an eye on in keeper leagues.
