Power nap needed for Francisco Lindor |

Everybody’s favorite shortstop might get a little rest soon. From Paul Hoynes:

Lindor is coming off an inspirational, but emotionally-draining four-day, two-game trip to his native Puerto Rico. He helped the Indians win Tuesday’s series opener, 6-1, against the Twins with a two-run homer that rocked the island. But he’s 3-for-21 since that homer.

”I think the trip to Puerto Rico, not just physically, but maybe emotionally (wore on him),” said manager Terry Francona. “I think that’s a fair statement.”

Terry Francona will keep the Indians’ aggressive on the bases |

Recent caught stealings won’t slow down the Tribe.

Zimmer jammed his ankle Saturday, but thankfully doesn’t seem too serious.
