Francisco Lindor (calf) expected to be out nearly two months
Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor will reportedly miss about the next two months after suffering a calf strain.
The Indians said Lindor "is expected to return to Major League game activity in 7-to-9 weeks," and opening Day is in exactly seven weeks from now. He'll be cutting it close based on this timeline, but there's enough time for him to recover in time to start the season healthy.
In 158 games last season, Lindor hit for a .277 batting average with 38 home runs, 129 runs, 92 RBI, 25 stolen bases and an OPS of .871.
