Francisco Lindor expected to be with Cleveland on opening day

by Rob Ingalsbe | Indians Correspondent | Wed, Jan 8th 3:32pm EST

Cleveland Indians president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti has said on multiple occasions that he expects the 26-year-old shortstop to be with the team on Opening Day. Antonetti reiterated that stance on Wednesday. "I have never had a different expectation other than Francisco will be our shortstop Opening Day," Antonetti said. "That was my expectation as the season ended. That’s still my expectation as I’m sitting here today." (Mandy Bell on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

The shortstop is a two-time Gold Glove Award winner and has topped the 30-homer mark in each of the past three seasons. Remaining in a potent lineup like the Indians' should lead to more of the same, though Lindor has the talent to be a strong fantasy asset wherever he ultimately ends up.
