MLB Draft Live Blog

The Clevelnad Indians do pretty well for themselves here (compared to some of the picks that they were projected to take, anyway) and select Shortstop Francisco Lindor.  Lindor has crazy range at short and is a lock to stick at the position in the big leagues.  He is one of only 2 or 3 players in this whole draft that will be able to play SS at the big league level with any sort of competency.  Finding a shortstop is hard.  The Tribe get one that will be fine defensively and may provide them with above average offensive output as well.  I am not as high on Lindor's offensive potential as some scouts/analysts but think he'll be good enough that he's not an offensive liability.  He is verbally committed to FLorida State, but I doubt it will stand in the way of Cleveland's acquisition of Lindor.
