Image for Top Five Trades for Francisco Lindor

There are some very intriguing possibilities with trades for Francisco Lindor. Francisco Lindor is one of the best shortstops in the Majors that will become a free agent after the 2021 season. The Cleveland Indians want to reduce their payroll and try to trade for him this season. Any team will want a player like Francisco Lindor. He can add to the defense on the infield and definitely add pop to any lineup.

The New York Mets have possible trades for Fransciso Lindor

The New York Mets have a definite need for Lindor. In order to get a trade done the Mets will have to give up top shortstop prospect Ronnie Mauricio, right fielder Michael Conforto, and their 52nd pick in the 2020 draft, right-handed pitcher J.T. Ginn .

Ronnie Mauricio has been tied to other trade talks. He has been lighting it up in the minors and can definitely be a starter soon in the major leagues. The Indians might as well take advantage of this.

Michael Conforto is the Mets right fielder. He was a top prospect in 2015 and turned into a All-Star performer by 2017. He will provide an extra power bat in the Indians lineup.

J.T. Ginn is the Mets 52nd pick in the 2020 draft. He is a right-handed pitcher from Mississippi State that has been recovering from elbow surgery. He will be a needed arm for the Mets.

Fransciso Lindor would help anyone on that Mets lineup. More than likely he would make players like Pete Alonso better. Lindor is an elite defenseman and one of the best contact hitters in baseball.

The Los Angeles Angels have Possible Trades for Fransciso Lindor

In order for the Los Angeles Angels to pull off a trade, it would probably take number five prospect shortstop Kyren Paris, number three prospect outfielder Jordyn Adams, number two prospect Reid Detmers which is a left-handed pitcher, and possibly Jo Adell. This will give the Indians an opportunity to possibly take three of the Angels top five prospects.

The New York Yankees have Possible Trades for Fransciso Lindor

It is very possible to see the Yankees needing Francisco Lindor. This is provided that they re-sign D.J. Lemahieu. This gives them more flexibility in the infield. They would slide Lemahieu from second base to first base, move Gleyber Torres from shortstop to second base, and put Francisco Lindor at shortstop.

The trade package would include Luke Voit which was the major league homerun leader. He has three years left on his contract which helps the Cleveland Indians achieve their goal. They want bat production with less spending.

Miguel Andujar can also be in the package. He is a third baseman that can play DH and has three years left on his contract. In addition to third base Andujar, he can also play anywhere in the infield.

The last part of the package would be the Yankees number two prospect right-handed pitcher Clarke Schmidt.

This would be a huge package for the Indians. They would have six years of team control with Voit and Andujar and a big power pitcher.

The Milwaukee Brewers Have Possible Trades For Fransciso Lindor

In order for the Brewers to get Francisco Lindor, they would have to give up number two prospect shortstop/second base Brice Turang, their number three prospect left-handed pitcher Ethan Small, and right-handed pitcher J.P. Feyereison. That makes it two top prospects and a already established major league pitcher.

The Milwaukee Brewers have been in need of a shortstop for years and landing Lindor would be one of the best. Imagine having to face Lindor and then facing Christian Yelich after him.

Los Angeles Dodgers have Possible Trades for Fransciso Lindor

In order for the Dodgers to get Francisco Lindor they would have to give up their infield stud prospect Gavin Lux, their catcher prospect Keibert Ruiz, and their starting shortstop Chris Taylor.

The Dodgers keep getting younger and keep paying the big bucks for the best team around them.
