Indians Dynamic Young Superstar SS Has Everyone Smiling

CLEVELAND – The Indians walked off the field early in July after a solid outing from their ace pitcher Corey Kluber.

The Tribe Cy Young award winner from 2014 had just thrown a masterpiece, holding the AL West leading Houston Astros in check as the Indians offense did just enough to earn a hard fought 2-0 win.

While the Indians were happy about a win, their rookie shortstop had just hit his low point when it came to trying to find himself at the plate.

Francisco Lindor was going through growing pains. He was scuffling at the plate, hitting just .205, but the team was set to be patient with a player they had invested so highly in.

From that point, the 8th pick of the Indians in the 2011 draft just went back to the basics, back to doing what he knew best, which is to focus and take each plate appearance one at a time and not look too far ahead.

Needless to say, it’s paid off.
