Francisco Lindor is the Indians top prospect and a top-15 prospect in all of baseball. He was advertised as a All-Star with the glove with a solid power-lacking bat.
Somebody say power? Well, the 20-year-old hit his sixth home run yesterday in 71 games in Double-A this season. Here’s the video from MiLB.com:
Lindor’s batting line is now .281/.360/.403. Despite the uptick in homers, he only has nine doubles and his slugging percentage is a slight decline from his .407 mark in High-A last season.
Minor League Ball’s John Sickels raved about Lindor’s 35:51 walk:strikeout ratio in his prospect note report earlier today. Lindor also has led the RubberDucks to the top fielding percentage in the 12-team Eastern League.
On Tuesday, he was named as the only Indians participant in the 2014 Futures Game. The Puerto Rico native will be playing for the World Team on Sunday, July 13, at Minnesota’s Target Field.
