Tribe news

Francona optimistic Lindor can beat timetable | MLB

Love Tito’s optimism, but the Tribe medical staff put Lindor’s timetable at 7-9 weeks. At this point, the Cleveland medical staff shouldn’t get any benefit of the doubt when it comes to correctly diagnosing players. I would put money on Lindor being out more time, not less.

Prospects who should vie for a roster spot in camp | MLB

Yu Chang is probably on this list for the Tribe due to Lindor’s injury, which opens up some possibilities around the diamond. He’s not a permanent replacement for Lindor (yet), but maybe he could impress this spring and find himself in Cleveland come Opening Day.
