MLB Trade Rumors: Breaking Down Best Fits for Indians' Francisco Lindor

Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor could be the best player on the move during the 2020 MLB offseason as he prepares to enter the final year of his contract.

Lindor has earned four straight All-Star selections and he finished in the top 10 of AL MVP Award voting three consecutive times beginning in 2016. He's also a high-end defender, winning two Gold Glove Awards and ranking fourth among all shortstops in Defensive Runs Saved since 2015, per FanGraphs.

Although those are hallmarks of a legitimate franchise player, the Tribe may not be able to compete with the lucrative offers the 26-year-old Puerto Rico native is likely to receive in free agency after the 2021 season.
