Indians Lindor has Strained Calf

For Indians fans, I know they are sad that Lindor will be out for the beginning of the season, but if I were to pick any team that would be fine without their star player, it would be the Indians.

If Lindor isn't ready for opening day, Indians manager Terry Francona has some options at shortstop.

Currently, he is not expected to return until early April at best, which means that Terry Francona will need to move some pieces around. Yu Chang and Eric Staments are listed as Lindor's backups on the Indians' website - neither prospect has played in the Major Leagues. Veteran infielder Ryan Flaherty will also be in camp on a minor league deal.

The All-Star shortstop had a career year in 2018.

One of baseball's top all-around players, Lindor recently got hurt while working out in Orlando, Florida. Jose Iglesias and Adeiny Hechavarria are two sort of name-brand options who can be signed to fill in, and Michael Martinez spent parts of three seasons (2015-2017) as a utility player for the Indians before apparently being out of baseball previous year. Lindor and the Indians settled on a one year-deal worth $10.55 million. Lindor led the team in hits and doubles previous year. Even if it's for a week or two, the Tribe can't afford to have Lindor out of their lineup this season.

Joyce, 34, has experience playing both corner outfield positions, and has played center field in a pinch. In addition, it tops off what has already been a very disappointing off season for the reigning American League Central Division champions. He has a.221 career average with 98 homers in 872 games between 2010-17.
