CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – Indians top prospect Francisco Lindor may sit the remainder of the season down in AA Akron with a sore back, something that has forced him to miss the last few games with the Aeros.
Akron manager Edwin Rodriguez told Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal that Lindor might be put on the shelf for the season. The Tribe prospect has just two appearances at the plate in the last 10 Aeros games.
Lindor has been solid in his move from A ball to AA, playing in 21 games for the Aeros, putting up 76 at-bats, hitting .289 with a homer, seven doubles and a triple.
While playing at A ball in Carolina, he played in a total of 83 games, hitting .306, one homer, 19 doubles and 6 triples, with 27 RBI.
Lindor will get the call to go to camp with the Indians again next season, and if the Tribe does decide to do something this offseason with Asdrubal Cabrera, watching Lindor in Goodyear will be even more interesting.
