Indians' Lindor out two months with calf strain

Indians' Lindor out two months with calf strain

The one positive Lindor and the Indians can take from this is the fact it happened before Spring Training started. He was checked Wednesday at the Cleveland Clinic and team physician Mark Shickendantz confirmed a moderate sprain.

This is the last thing the Cleveland Indians wanted to hear before they report to Spring Training.

Cleveland Indians Shortstop Francisco Lindor (L) talks with Cleveland Indians Third base Jose Ramirez (R) during the Major League Baseball regular season game between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Cleveland Indians on September 7, 2018, at Rogers Centre in Toronto, ON, Canada. Lindor led the team in hits and doubles a year ago. He played the past two seasons in Oakland.

Even if Lindor is progressing well, you'd have to imagine Cleveland going with a cautious approach, meaning it's likely he'd miss the first couple weeks of the season. Joyce's deal is pending a successful physical.

For its availability, the phone will be available exclusively via Amazon India website and its product page is still live now. In addition, the company has mentioned in its announcement that V15 Pro will feature a 32-megapixel selfie camera.


Lindor has become an indispensable player for the Indians, playing at least 158 games in each of the last three seasons. The one-time All-Star hit.208 with seven home runs and 34 runs. The 31-year-old California native has made 600 appearances at second base and 220 at shortstop over eight major campaigns.

Fangraphs.com projects Joyce to hit a handful of home runs and drive in about 14 with a batting average of.232 in a little more than 30 games in 2019.

Espinosa was released by four teams in 2018, including during spring training by the New York Yankees. He later bounced around minor league affiliates of the Toronto Blue Jays, Los Angeles Dodgers and Philadelphia Phillies and was released by each organization.
