Francisco Lindor – SS

Francisco Lindor is going to be a member of the Cleveland Indians for a long time.

The shortstop has already become a household name after just a season and a half in the big leagues.

In his first full season, Lindor won both a Gold and Platinum Glove at the toughest position in baseball. Not to mention, his hitting has been far better than anyone could have ever imagined.

Lindor’s work ethic and attitude towards the game were always major upsides, and that continues to show as he works towards his second full season in Cleveland.

With his youth and contract, Lindor’s value is right there with Mike Trout, Clayton Kershaw and Kris Bryant.

Expect the Indians to start talking contract extension with Lindor within the next couple of seasons, because the team is not going to want to take a chance of Lindor being in another team’s uniform.
