Indians SS Francisco Lindor to Miss Opening Day With Calf Strain

Report: Indians SS Francisco Lindor to Miss Opening Day With Calf Strain

The Cleveland Indians say they will most likely start the season without their All-Star Shortstop Francisco Lindor.

The one positive Lindor and the Indians can take from this is the fact it happened before Spring Training started.

Lindor, 25, had the calf examined Wednesday at the Cleveland Clinic.

The Indians anticipate him being out up to nine weeks, which would place his return sometime in early April.

Eurovision 2019: Kate Miller-Heidke to represent Australia
In 2018, Israeli singer Netta Barzilai won the contest, helping to bring the competition to her country this year. Kate Miller-Heidke will represent Australia at Eurovision in 2019.


The Indians open their season in Minnesota against the Twins on March 28th.

The loss of Lindor for any period is a major blow to the three-time defending AL Central champions. Lindor led the league in at-bats and runs, crossing the plate 129 times.

"Get well soon & keep smiling!" the team wrote.

From a certain perspective, even though a repeat of past year has been hard to foresee even if he was healthy right now, Lindor could now become a relative value in fantasy drafts and auctions.

There will also be a special " Share the Love " competitive series, with placement matches running across February 9th and 10th. Players can unlock the Support-a-Creator Reward by supporting a Creator or entering a Creator Code between February 8 and 22.


In the event Lindor isn't ready for opening day, the Indians will have plenty of potential replacements. One choice could be sliding over All-Star third baseman Jose Ramirez, who has played 109 games at short.

NOTES: The Indians reached agreement on a minor league contract with free agent outfielder Matt Joyce, who could bring depth and another option to an area of uncertainty. Even if it's for a week or two, the Tribe can't afford to have Lindor out of their lineup this season. Lindor has played in 158 games or more in three-consecutive seasons.

Joyce will earn $1.25 million if he makes the big league club and could add $500,000 in incentives per a report from USA Today's Bob Nightengale.
