Francisco Lindor News
New York Mets shortstop Francisco Lindor reached a personal milestone in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies, going 2-for-4 with a run scored, two stolen bases and a strikeout. He's now stolen four bases in his last four games and has reached the 30-stolen base mark for the first time in his career. The 29-year-old Puerto Rican is four home runs shy of joining the 30-30 club this year as well. He's currently slashing .251/.332/.452 with 26 home runs, 88 RBI, 30 stolen bases and 100 runs scored in 573 at-bats. Lindor got off to a miserably cold start this year and although he hasn't been that great at the plate in September, he is currently riding a modest six-game hitting streak that has seen him go 7-for-22 (.318) with an RBI, four steals and three runs scored.
New York Mets shortstop Francisco Lindor reached the 20-20 mark in Monday night's 7-2 win over the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates. He finished the night 2-for-3 with a double, two runs scored, his 20th stolen base of the season and a walk. The four-time All-Star now has 22 home runs, 26 doubles, 70 RBI, 20 steals and 74 runs scored in 502 trips to the plate and 117 games despite getting off to a tough start in 2023. It's the third time in Lindor's career that he's reached the 20-20 mark, with the last time coming in 2019 with Cleveland. The 29-year-old needs to be in starting fantasy lineups on a daily basis, especially since he's gone 20-for-55 (.364) with three long balls, four doubles, eight RBI, three steals and 13 runs scored in 15 starts since July 28.
New York Mets shortstop Francisco Lindor (side) is back in the starting lineup for Saturday's nightcap of the doubleheader against the Atlanta Braves. The 29-year-old was scratched from Friday's game due to soreness in his side. He underwent an MRI, but it didn't reveal anything serious. Lindor sat out the first game of the doubleheader, but will play in the second game. He'll bat second and play shortstop versus right-hander Spencer Strider on Saturday.
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.
