Francisco Lindor to miss up to 9 weeks with calf strain

Currently, he is not expected to return until early April at best, which means that Terry Francona will need to move some pieces around. In 2015, he finished second in AL Rookie of the Year votes and has a career.288/.350/.487 slash line.

The Francisco Lindor injury is devastating for baseball, especially when its free agents have not signed and there is a week until Spring Training kicks off in Arizona and Florida, but the Indians will be fine.

Edwin Encarnacion, Yonder Alonso, Yan Gomes and Yandy Diaz were among the hitters the Indians traded this winter. Lindor has played in 158 games or more in three-consecutive seasons.

Lindor, a three-time All-Star and perennial MVP candidate, hit.277 with 38 home runs and 25 stolen bases last season.

The Cleveland Indians may start the season without their best player.

For Preventing Hangover, Wine First or Beer First?
Control-group subjects who drank only beer on the first intervention received only wine on the second study day (and vice versa). However, vomiting and perceived drunkenness were associated with more severe hangover, the study authors said.

But on Saturday night, Los Angeles was far less anxious about draft positioning than it was beating Boston at T.D. Boston recently gave up an 18-point lead to the Los Angeles Lakers , in a Thursday night loss at Staples Center.

In January Lindor was eligible for arbitration for the first time.

From a certain perspective, even though a repeat of previous 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. Even if it's for a week or two, the Tribe can't afford to have Lindor out of their lineup this season. A left-handed hitter, he made $6 million in the final season of a $10 million, two-year deal.

The Tampa, native will be looking to erase a woeful 2018 that saw him hit just.208 in 246 plate appearances with seven home runs, 53 strikeouts and a.675 OPS.

The Indians are looking for Joyce to provide veteran stability and consistency on a team that has gotten a lot younger in the offseason. He has a.221 career average with 98 homers in 872 games between 2010-17.
