CLEVELAND– Congrats are in order for Francisco Lindor.
The Cleveland Indians player won the American League Gold Glove at shortstop on Tuesday. Lindor just finished his second season and this is his first time winning the award.
He was up against Jose Iglesias of the Detroit Tigers and Andrelton Simmons of the Los Angeles Angels.
Lindor, who turns 23 next week, is the youngest shortstop to win since 1980. He’s just the second Indians shortstop to get a Rawlings Gold Glove. Omar Vizquel won eight straight awards from 1994 to 2001.
Lindor remains under the Tribe’s control through at least the 2021 season.
