The Cleveland Indians promoted SS Francisco Lindor from Double-A Akron to Triple-A Columbus Monday, July 21. "You never expect to go somewhere else. You work for it," Lindor said.
Fantasy Tip: Lindor is one of the top prospects in baseball, and he could end up being a September call-up when rosters expand. He is a must-have in all long-term keeper fantasy leagues, and those in non-keeper AL-only formats might want to stash him away for later in the season.

Cleveland Indians scouts have been told to focus on Tampa Bay Rays minor league players, which has triggered speculation it is interested in trading for SP David Price. C Carlos Santana and SP Danny Salazar were rumored to head to Tampa Bay for Price in the offseason, and the Indians have indicated players who may be expendable. SS Francisco Lindor is not one of them, say sources.

The Cleveland Indians re-assigned SS Francisco Lindor to minor league camp Wednesday, March 12.
Fantasy Tip: Lindor is a fine young shortstop prospect for the Indians, and there's a good chance he could be a September call-up for the Tribe this season. With Asdrubal Cabrera's time in Cleveland likely coming to an end, 2015 could be the year Lindor is up for good.

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona said SS Francisco Lindor looks stronger this spring. "He's a little bit bigger, stronger," Francona said. "I don't think he quite has his explosiveness yet that he will, but again, he was down for a while with that back (injury). I think you'll see him be a little more explosive as he gets into playing again."

The Cleveland Indians are not expected to move SS Asdrubal Cabrera this winter. Paul Hoynes, a veteran Cleveland Indians columnist for the Plain Dealer, speculates SS Mike Aviles is only a part-time player and SS prospect Francisco Lindor isn't quite ready for duty due to a back injury last year.
