The Indians announced Francisco Lindor suffered a calf strain recently and will be out for roughly 7-9 weeks. (Cleveland Indians on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

He apparently suffered the injury while working out. This definitely shakes up the top of the fantasy draft board as Lindor was a consensus top-four pick before this news. Opening Day is seven weeks away, so Lindor will be cutting it close and won't have a full spring training to get his timing down. For now, fantasy players are probably better off playing it safe in the first round and looking elsewhere. That could change quickly, however, if we start hearing good things about his recovery.
