Lindor took the next leap to superstardom by setting personal bests in home runs (38), steals (25), runs (129), and RBI (92) in 2018. A .290 xBA also suggests his .277 average represents a floor rather than a sacrifice for added power. Caught stealing 10 times, there's some danger of him getting fewer opportunities, especially with his Opening Day availability now in question due to a strained calf. The injury drops him from a top-four lock into a riskier choice who should probably fall outside of the first round in 12-team leagues.

Francisco Lindor (calf) out 7-9 weeks

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

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.
