Francisco Lindor could miss Indians' Opening Day with strained right calf

It hasn't even really started yet, but the Cleveland Indians' 2019 season is already off to a troubling beginning.

Francisco Lindor will miss 7-to-9 weeks with a strained right calf the Indians announced on Friday.

The Indians said Lindor recently hurt the calf while preparing for spring training in Orlando, Fla.

Bell reports that Lindor, 25, started the rehab process already after visiting a doctor Wednesday.

The three-time All-Star achieved career highs of 38 home runs and 92 RBIs last season while batting.277 in 158 games. At minimum without a full spring training before Opening Day, Lindor is now a risky pick and it'll be interesting to see how that ADP is affected in the coming weeks. Lindor and Jose Ramirez were expected to carry the offense this season so this injury can not be welcomed news in the executive offices at Progressive Field.

Remember, that's game activity, not big league action. Ramirez could move from third to shortstop, but that's a long shot.

The silver lining for Cleveland is that Lindor at least has a chance to be ready by opening day. The left-handed hitting outfielder earned $6 million last season in the final year of a two-year $10 million contract with the Athletics. Utility man Max Moroff, acquired from the Pirates in the Gonzalez deal, played six games at short past year.

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

Lindor avoided arbitration this offseason. He played the past two seasons in Oakland.

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.
