BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2017 Due to publishing agreements, the 2017 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2017 book (available in hardcopy, and soon e-book and Kindle).
2016 The runner-up for the 2015 AL Rookie of the Year made a pretty good case that he, not Carlos Correa, was not only the league's top rookie, but also the most valuable shortstop in baseball. Of course, Correa made a pretty good case, too. The world is generous to us, and this is going to be really, really fun.

The case for Lindor relies a bit on defensive value, which we all know is less nourishing in single servings than offensive value. But Lindor's exceptional ratings (DRS had him worth 10 runs; UZR, 15) are just confirmation of what scouts and prospect mavens have been promising: Ultraathleticism, supergrace, megarange, etc. Lindor stands out most on a particular type of play, the one that off the bat looks neither routine nor necessarily a hit, the tweener groundball. On plays judged by the video-scouting company Inside Edge to be either Unlikely plays (10-40 percent of shortstops would convert it) or Even plays (40-60 percent), Lindor was the best in baseball last year. Of the Unlikely variety, he succeeded 67 percent of the time. This is a small bucket of plays and this was only a glimpse, to be sure, but glimpses have powered carnal fantasies for millenia.

Of course, that's what we had expected from Lindor. The headline, really, was that he can really hit. Despite bringing his groundball tendencies with him to The Show, he took 14 balls out of the park in 2015, a new professional career high. His power might regress some—51 percent is a lot of grounders for an aspiring slugger—but his advanced approach and bat-to-ball skills look strong enough to make those Elvis Andrus comps look stingy: At 22, he's already the better hitter. And probably the better shortstop. And maybe, just maybe, the best shortstop.

2015 If you closed your eyes and set your mind to imagining the prototypical defensive shortstop, Francisco Lindor would appear with a quick first step. He would display superior range and show off arm strength and accuracy with a seed delivered to the first baseman's chest from deep in the hole. Maybe at the end he would wink at you. Lindor's glove has a way of overshadowing his contributions at the plate, which are developing in a positive direction: He has good barrel control, a quick bat and a plan at the plate that foretells a possible future as a good offensive player, but, as you can see above, he's not there yet. He runs well enough to envision a few seasons in the 20s in stolen bases, but he's not going to break any land speed records. Or air speed records, for that matter. Or water. Are there any other speed records?
2014 The youngest participant in the 2012 Futures Game, Lindor was shut down in mid-August with a back strain. That hardly put a dent in his development, though, because the shortstop had already climbed all the way to Double-A, where he showed off his pitch recognition by walking twice as often as he struck out. Lindors on-base percentage would have ranked fourth in the Eastern League if maintained over a full season, and it is just one of many testaments to the polish with which he dazzles scouts on both sides of the ball. Power may never be a part of Lindors game, but with a Gold Glove skill set at shortstop, the hit tool and discipline to bat near the top of the order and the makeup and instincts to maximize his ability, there is one word to describe what lies in his near future: stardom.
2013 The stats alone might leave you wanting, but when you consider the fact that Lindor was an 18-year-old who needed just five games in Low-A before handling a full-season assignment last year, things begin to crystalize a bit more. Of course, considering his youth only makes his 11 percent walk and 13 percent strikeout rates that much more impressive. Given how far away he is, this is all more dream than actualization, but Lindor is a first-division shortstop in the making, with a superstar ceiling. His amazing glove at a premium position will make his offensive output play up, but at his peak he can be a .285 batting average/.375 on-base percentage guy with gap power and good speed. It will be fun to watch him develop.
2012 The team's first-round draft pick in 2011 (and the eighth overall pick in the draft), Lindor may already be Cleveland's top prospect after their slew of injuries, trades, and promotions this season. A great defender with plus range and a plus arm, Lindor often looks more like an acrobat than a baseball player. Far from one-dimensional, he also shows a good approach at the plate, patience, and the potential to hit for a good average and moderate power. Lindor is poised to establish himself as one of the top shortstop prospects in all of baseball in 2012, though it may take him a while to reach the majors since he's fresh out of high school.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2017-06-27 20:00:00 (link to chat)So what do you think of Francisco Lindor's profile, went from a high average hitter with some pop to a low average bomber.
(Mike from NY)
Given that he's only 23, he's probably going to do all of these things at the same time in some season to come. I'd say that would make him the MVP, but Mike Trout is still not of this planet. (Jarrett Seidler)
2017-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Amed Rosario as a fantasy prospect? I own him in a bunch of dynasty leagues and am considering whether to deal him with all the hype right now or hold him. Can he be a .280, 10 HR, 30 SB threat (full season pace) right away? Or is the power years away?
(Nate from Brownsburg)
I really like Rosario. We had him in the top 10 in the pre-season at BP. I think you're selling him at the height of his value if you do it right now. I wouldn't have a problem with it, depending on the return. The speed and batting average are the carrying tools right now, I'm not holding my breath on the power. We said these same things about Francisco Lindor a few years ago. I'm not saying he's Lindor, but I really like Rosario. (George Bissell)
2017-02-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)I just traded for Francisco Lindor, and am looking to rebuild. I already roster Rosario, Eloy, Devers, Acuna, Robles, Tucker, Isan Diaz, Keller, Mendez, and Martes. I immediately put Lindor on the trade block thinking his value may never be higher, and also thinking I might be able to putt 2 top-20 prospects for him, to go with the rest of my super young core. How do you feel about Lindor's value going forward? Is he a guy I should be building around? I'm just not sold on the guy
(Jmax from Niagara, ON)
I think Lindor is the safest shortstop in fantasy baseball to remain a shortstop for the next decade-plus. I think he's the best defensive shortstop in baseball. He's also going to bat third in arguably the best lineup in the game. I think Lindor is underrated because it's a five-category fantasy profile that maxes out at about .300 with 20 HR & 20-25 SB. That doesn't sound exciting but it is. I wouldn't trade Lindor. Yes, he's a core foundational piece and I'm not sure what else you would need to see to be sold that he's a top three-to-five shortstop. Sorry, I'm a Lindor guy. (George Bissell)
2017-01-31 19:00:00 (link to chat)Dansby Swanson prime more Xander Boagarts 2016 or Francisco Lindor 2016?
(Charlie from ATL)
I'm not sure if he'll run enough for the Lindor comp, and I'm not sure if he'll hit for enough power for the Bogaerts comp. That said, I think he'll still be really good falling in the middle of those two. (Mark Barry)
2017-01-18 20:00:00 (link to chat)How is a guy (Dansby Swanson) who "may" go 15-15 one of the best fantasy prospects in baseball? Seems those numbers are kinda blah for fantasy.

(Enrique from New Jersey)
I think he's one of the top three remaining as a prospect, but no, I don't see him at the level of Corey Seager or Francisco Lindor or Manny Machado or anyone like that. (Jarrett Seidler)

(Tommy from Philly)
On my list of worries his early performance is...man, I can't even find it on there. I've got "groggily stepping out of bed onto a Lego" penciled in at #674, and that's the end of the list. He's the second-youngest playa in the Eastern League, he'll be fine. Lindor's the most common comp for the skill set. I don't love comps, but it's a reasonable facsimile of the skill set. (Wilson Karaman)
2016-05-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Is Xander Bogaerts the best shortstop in the AL? In baseball?
(Brian from Tehran)
Oh boy. Well, are we counting Manny Machado? If we are, it's Machado. If we're mentally keeping Machado at third base, then it's between Xander, Carlos Correa and Francisco Lindor.
Hello there, Cardinals fans! Yes, Aledmys Diaz is going to come back down to Earth, and he's already wonky on defense. Please don't kill me.
Correa isn't as good on defense as you think, but there's clearly a small mountain of potential in his bat and he's already shown that he can wreck shop on offense. Lindor can do everything, and Boegarts is finally hitting like we all thought he could. It's reeeeally close between Lindor and Boegarts, with Correa just behind and likely moving to third base when Alex Bregman decides it's time to throw his hat into the ring. So if it isn't Boegarts, he's just a hair behind.
Unless it's Machado. Then it's Manny by a mile. (Nicolas Stellini)

(JR from b Town)
Not worried at all. Dude has a .391 OBP. The hits will start dropping.

I'm not sure he can be as good as Lindor, but, that's because Lindor is sensational. Crawford will be good, I'm just not sure he's Lindor. (Christopher Crawford)

(Andrew from City of Brotherly Love)
Not at all. He's developed at a good pace. Not a bad start in Triple-A, right? *wink* Prospects don't always develop as we envision, but he's responded to the pressure positively. And for a kid who will be playing in front of tough Phillies fans & media, that's going to be important. (Jessica Quiroli)

(Lark from Wisconsin)
Man, these two are gonna get compared to each other for a long time, aren't they? I go Lindor, if only because there's a little more safety in Lindor now that we've seen him succeed. It's really close, though. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-12-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)When do you think JP Crawford will be up in the majors and will he be better than Francisco Lindor?
(Dan from Philly)
I think Crawford has a really good chance of being in Philadelphia before the All-Star break -- assuming things go well, of course -- but better than Lindor? After what I saw from Lindor this summer I have a hard time saying that, and I LOVE Crawford. Especially his last name. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-12-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)JP Crawford, better then Francisco Lindor once he gets called up?
(Andy from Philly)
I don't know. Crawford's control of the strike zone in Double A this year was amazing, better than Lindor ever showed. I think he might have the higher eventual ceiling. I'm not sure he matches what Lindor did over his first 100-plus games. (Matthew Trueblood)
2015-12-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)JP Crawford the next Francisco Lindor?
(Dan from Philly)
Not an unreasonable comp. Lindor hit better than I thought he would, certainly right off the bat. Crawford's very much in the conversation for our top 5 in early #BP101 discussion, which is Lindor territory. (Wilson Karaman)
2015-09-21 20:30:00 (link to chat)We all know Carlos Correa is the best defensive shortstop in the game. But how close or I guess how far behind that title is Addison Russell?
(BC from Urbandale)
We do? Correa is noticeably behind Russell defensively for me, but I'm assuming you meant Francisco Lindor. (Bret Sayre)
2015-07-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why should I believe that Francisco Lindor won't end up being Elvis Andrus Part Deux ?
(tbwhite from San Diego)
I'm the wrong person to ask because A. I'm no scout, and B. I was never super high on Lindor. I think he'll still be a well above average defender at short who hits decently but not superbly. Elvis Andrus, it turns out, can't hit OR play good defense. So I think Lindor is already better than that because his defense is so strong. He just needs more time to adjust to MLB pitching and hopefully he'll make more contact, become a strong doubles hitter. (Jeff Long)
2015-06-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Francisco Lindor, since it appears he is about to be called up, what should we expect and to what current or recent shortstop would you compare his offensive skill set?

We'll definitely have a call-up piece if/when it happens, but I'm a huge fan. Plus hit tool, and plus-plus defense = prettay, prettay good. (Christopher Crawford)
2015-06-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Are you a believer of Danny Salazar's stuff or just riding the roller coaster like the rest of us?
(Joe from The Keys)
I am a believer in Salazar. In fact, he's one of the top-10 pitchers according to cFIP. He'll benefit from the defensive improvement at third base (Urshela) and will ultimately benefit once Francisco Lindor gets the call later this summer. I'm on board w/ Salazar. (J.P. Breen)
2015-06-02 18:00:00 (link to chat)What's your best guess as to what we can expect offensively from Francisco Lindor?
(John from CT)
.280 average with some on base skills and some pop you weren't expecting. The steals will be there too because he's a smart baserunner. (Mauricio Rubio)
2015-05-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)What do you expect from Francisco Lindor? And when do you think he gets the call?
(Bert from Cleveland)
He should get the call sometime around the all-star break. I expect a great glove, some gap power, and a few steals. (Nick Shlain)

(Scott from Baltimore )
I love the player, but there are too many options in the outfield right now. Would not be surprised to see Mookie start at AAA. Victorino trade would be ideal, because Mookie just might be Boston's highest WAR/best player in 2015 if he plays. Mookie and Francisco Lindor were the two highest grades I gave to position players in 2014. He'll hit for average with plenty of speed and power. (Al Skorupa)
2015-01-15 18:00:00 (link to chat)No contest on the defensive side, but higher offensive upside: Dilson Herrera or Francisco Lindor?
(Walt from Jersey)
The sum of Lindor's offensive parts -- ability to hit for average, likely on-base skills, decent pop, and good base stealing ability -- give him the edge for me. Herrera doesn't have as broad a skill set, and thus less margin for error. (Mark Anderson)
2014-12-11 18:00:00 (link to chat)I can't remember where, but pretty recently a credible source stated that Francisco Lindor is not rated as highly by scouts and officials employed by major league team as the national prospect writers and media seem to have him. What are your thoughts on this? Is there any validity to it?
(username49 from Ohio)
I've certainly talked to some within the industry that view Lindor as a good prospect, but not on the same level as Correa or Russell, but I haven't really found anyone that dislikes him as a prospect. Still, the majority of talent evaluators and front office folks I speak with still firmly believe Lindor is potential All-Star caliber player that contributes in every possible way. (Mark Anderson)

Nope.

There is not one player in the Eastern and Carolina Leagues even remotely close to him. But for the sake of the question, here are the best hit tools I've seen in both leagues:

Carolina - Nick Williams
Eastern - Francisco Lindor

Side Note: Gwynn's tragedy allowed the light to go off in my head, and I have now quit dipping. I hope many others have decided to quit after we lost such a great man. (Tucker Blair)

(Graham from Richmond, VA)
In terms of talent, he could play SS in the major leagues today. I'm sure of it. There are some who would take Lindor over Correa, but I don't think that has anything to do with the injury as much as Lindor himself. Russell is a downright impressive prospect, but he's a tier behind each of the other two. (Jordan Gorosh)

(NatsGM from Bethesda MD)
We had this discussion as a staff the other day and included Baez and Correa in the mix. I went with Lindor. Here's the link:

http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=23246

There's no right or wrong, so much as just a preference. Same with Rodriguez vs. Cole. Do you like ceiling or floor? Cole could be the better pitcher, but he could also be a reliever still. Sometimes it's just a preference.

You want food in Delray? Go to Park Tavern. You simply can't beat it, and order an Old Fashioned. My favorite sports bar is a little dive called The Hurricane because it's an Eagles bar and they put the game on every Sunday and it's filled with other idiots in Randal Cunningham throwbacks to make me feel better about myself.

(NatsGM from Bethesda MD)
The Nats system isn't super exciting, but there are some dudes. I really like Zach Walters, though i dont know if he qualifies as a sleeper, and that's probably just because I love prospects who profile as super-utility guys (for no particular reason). I don't know if Walters can play every day but I think he can be a valuable guy on a roster because he can play all over, switch-hits and has some pop. I like valuable, versatile roster guys like that.

Lindor is so #smooth in the field it's ridiculous, but Russell has more upside with the bat because of his power. It's a toss up for which you prefer, but I like Russell a little since I've read some encouraging reports about his ability to stay at short. If that changes, I'll take Lindor all day.

Favorite restaurant in Delray is Park Tavern on Atlantic Ave. I've never had a bad meal there. In fact, I can see it from where I'm sitting right now. (Jeff Moore)

(John Niggli from Lagos)
I think the top tier of fantasy prospects goes Bogaerts, Baez, Buxton, Taveras in that order. Then there's a dropoff to Hamilton at No. 5, for me. I think you can rank the first four in any order. If you want me to pick three of the "safest" prospects, let's go Bogaerts, Taveras and Francisco Lindor. (Ben Carsley)
2014-01-29 19:00:00 (link to chat)Welcome Ben, I'll start you off with a curveball: Let's say every draft eligible prospect from 2010 to 2014 was eligible for this year's draft. Just based on pre-draft scouting reports and without the benefit of hindsight, how would the first 10 picks of the draft unfold?
(baseballjunkie from cali, where it's already Spring)
This is an amazingly difficult question to answer, and also quite fun. It's probably better suited for an article than for a fantasy chat answer, but since I was able to access this question ahead of time, here's what I came up with after about 30 min of research. I'll note that since I'm not familiar enough with 2014 prospects yet, I've restricted your search to 2010-2013 draftees. I'll go with:

1. Bryce Harper 2. Manny Machado 3. Gerrit Cole 4. Dylan Bundy 5. Anthony Rendon 6. Jameson Taillon 7. Bubba Starling
8. Byron Buxton 9. Carlos Correa 10. Archie Bradley

Toughest omissions for me were Francisco Lindor, Trevor Bauer, Kevin Gausman, Kris Bryant and Mark Appel. If Luc Giolito had been healthy for his senior year, he'd probably have made it on this list. Obviously that's not how we'd rank them now, and it's funny that guys like Chris Sale, Jose Fernandez, Matt Harvey and Javier Baez are left in the dust. Bubba Starling sticks out like a sore thumb, and Buxton was underrated. This exercise also reinforces how loaded the 2011 draft was. Last year's pales in comparison. (Ben Carsley)

(gerrybraun from san diego)
Unfortunately I'm stuck in Grapefruit country, but if I was going to Arizona again this spring, I'd be sure to check out Cubs, Rockies and Rangers. That's probably your best bet to see young talent on the back fields, assuming you can get there. And if you have time, go see Francisco Lindor field ground balls in batting practice. And take your kid, if you have one. You won't see a better exhibition of fluidity and grace with a glove than that.

2013-10-30 12:00:00 (link to chat)Francisco Lindor gets the call by ____ and produces as a top ____ SS
(Ziggy from Marley)
Could be next year, by the end of the season. That said, Cleveland still has Asdrubal Cabrera under contract next season ($10 million). They could trade him, but Lindor isn't ready now, so they'd need a stop-gap at shortstop and by definition stop-gaps aren't as good as non-stop-gaps so the team would likely be taking a hit there. I'd guess they'll hold on to Cabrera and if they're not in contention by the deadline, they'll deal him and in a perfect world, Lindor would be knocking down the door to the majors in Triple-A at that point and they could just call him up.

But I'll say he gets a September call up and rides the bench mostly. (Matthew Kory)
2013-11-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Could Francisco Lindor be ready by June/July making Asdrubal (although limited trade value as mentioned previously) expendable? In your mind, does he project as a 290avg/385obp/12hr/25sb type leadoff guy?
(Ziggy from Top)
Lindor could certainly be ready next year, and has enough value in his glove that the team could break camp with him at the six spot. That offensive line is attainable, but I would expect a few seasons before he hits for that power, and he's not a surefire 20+ SB guy. I see him as a #1 or #2 hitter, long term, that will help you on all sides of the ball. (Nick J. Faleris)

I think you should be excited, Jake. Lindor's a very good prospect at a premium position. You're looking at a high contact hitting ceiling with the bat. A player that can hit balls hard on a line, plug gaps, and use the whole field. There's a lot of development to go and some gates to pass, but potentially a top-of-the-order type and strong defender.

2013-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)It seems like people are really high on Francisco Lindor, but he really seemed to struggle in the second half of the season last year. Do you know what happened? Did he tire due to the longer season and travel, or did the results not match what scouts were seeing?
(ttt from Manhattan)
Young kid in a tough league during his first full pro season. I did not myself see, nor have I heard from others, any concern. He's a dude; he's going to be a good pro player. (Nick Faleris)
2012-10-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who is the odds on favorite to establish himself as the number one prospect in baseball 12 months from now? The guy who could make the big leap in 2013. Miguel Sano, Francisco Lindor, Addison Russell all come to mind.
(Patrick from Boston)
Lindor if the bat explodes, but I don't really see it happening like that. I think it will be a tools freak that happens to put it together. Those are the #1 types. Like if a guy like Buxton or Starling explode. (Jason Parks)
2012-10-16 14:00:00 (link to chat)After Profar, rank in hotness the next level of upcoming minor league short stops from a list of Francisco Lindor, Addison Russell, Javier Baez, Hak-Ju Lee, Trevor Story, and Carlos Correa.
(Paul from DC)
Baez, Lindor, Russell, Story, Correa, Lee, but I'm assuming you're asking me to rank them purely be physical attractiveness. (Ben Lindbergh)
2012-08-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)You have just finished watching a complex league game. You saw, for the first time, a player you had never before heard about. He is now your favorite prospect ever, filling you with feelings of Francisco Lindor, Oscar Taveres and Yu Darvish, held together by Willie Mays' maple syrup and choir robe. What position does he play? Where is he from? What makes him so special? Have you ever stumbled onto such a prospect without any prior knowledge of the kid's existence?
(Nick from Michigan)
He plays shortstop; he's special because he's 6'7'' and weighs 250 lbs; he hits bombs, he steals bases, and he thinks Mike Trout's ceiling is a bag of #slack. He's the first of his kind; the wave of the future. Power-forward body with Venezuelan shortstop actions, Mike Trout's speed, and Stanton's power. He's also a sweetheart that has grit. (Jason Parks)
2012-04-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Francisco Lindor know that you have a man crush on him?
(The Coach from Wisconsin)
I've never had a conversation with him about it. I assume the majority of people who have seen him play have a similar crush. I just have a platform to declare my love. (Jason Parks)
2012-04-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey, Jason. Thanks for the chat. So I've noticed a lot of similarities in what I'm hearing about Francisco Lindor relative to Jurickson Profar a year ago: does everything well, supremely polished for the age, lacks a huge offensive ceiling. This year Profar revised our expectations of him, particularly. I guess I'm trying to understand whether this well-rounded, extremely solid/polished skillset plays up (above expectations), or whether it was a true tools-based breakout. And of course I'm wondering whether the same might be expected of Lindor. Thanks for the chat and the dispatches from Arizona. I loved the bit about the dog.
(Rob from Alaska)
Here's the thing with Profar: I don't think his breakout season altered his ceiling, at least not in my mind. What it did was raise his floor, which was already very high. Profar is a first-division shortstop waiting to happen, and he might be an all-star shortstop before the music stops. His floor is basically a starting major leaguer at a premium defensive position. He is going to be very good. The only question is how good is how soon? Lindor is similar in the sense that his floor is remarkably high, and his current polish and maturity allows those that have seen him in person to paint an accurate picture of the type of player he is going to be. Like Profar, Lindor has everything you want to see in a starting SS at the major league level; instincts out the ass, + arm, + glove. Add to the mix a very good bat, a very mature approach, and some pop. It's a great combination. They are both going to play in the majors for over a decade. They are the shortstops of the future.
