Francisco Lindor News
New York Mets shortstop Francisco Lindor had a huge game at the plate in Tuesday's 7-5 win over the Brewers. Lindor went 2-for-3 with a single, a seventh-inning go-ahead grand slam, and a walk. The 28-year-old has put together a nice bounce-back season, slashing .271/.345/.453 with 25 home runs, 99 RBI, and 16 stolen bases. Hopefully, he can finish out the season strong for fantasy managers and instill even more confidence heading into the 2023 season.
New York Mets shortstop Francisco Lindor might be breaking out of his slump, as he went 2-for-4 with a double, a run, an RBI, and a stolen base in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Things weren't going right for the flashy infielder from August 23 to the 28 when he went a combined 0-for-17, but he's now five for his last 10. Across 131 games, Lindor is slashing .269/.346/.445 with 21 HRs, 81 runs, 86 RBI, and 15 SBs. He's a clear four-category contributor that provides a decent batting average making him a top shortstop in fantasy baseball.
New York Mets shortstop Francisco Lindor has been hot, and that didn't change on Friday when he went 2-for-5 with a run during the 9-6 loss to the Atlanta Braves. Since July, the 28-year-old's batting .314 with seven home runs and a .946 OPS. Across 105 games this year, Lindor's slashing .262/.341/.456 with 19 HRs, 74 RBI, 65 runs, and 10 SBs. It seems he's put his lousy 2021 behind him and is once again a top fantasy shortstop hitting in the middle of the Mets lineup.
New York Mets shortstop Francisco Lindor bounced back in 2022 after a disappointing first season in Flushing, posting a 127 wRC+, his best mark since 2018. The 29-year-old slashed .270/.339/.449 with 26 home runs, 98 runs, 107 RBI, and 16 stolen bases. It's hard to ignore Lindor's career-high 18.8% strikeout rate, though, a season after setting a previous career-high 18.3%. His 22.9% whiff rate from this season looks poor compared to his career rate of 18.7%. Lindor was lucky to hit .270, as Statcast expected a mark of .254 after he had a 55th-percentile 89.3 MPH exit velocity and .301 BABIP. The shift ban will help the switch hitter from the left side (61.3% shift rate as a lefty, 59% pull rate on ground balls), but not enough to be a real contributor to batting average. Lindor's power numbers have seen better days, as his .427 xSLG and 54th percentile barrel rate show, along with his lowest max exit velocity (110.7 MPH) since his rookie season. Playing at Citi Field and pulling flyballs a below-average 23.9% over the last three seasons hasn't helped his home run totals either and is a trend that should continue in 2023. Steamer still projects Lindor to swipe 13 bags and garner 168 RBI plus runs, but with a .250 average and 25 home runs, he won't do enough compared to his ADP of 35.
