The Lindor Cohort

Recommended Posts

https://blogs.fangraphs.com/can-cleveland-afford-francisco-lindor/

FG with a take on whether Cleveland (probably a fair proxy for Baltimore) could afford to drop 10/$330 for Lindor FA years 2022-2031.

I don't imagine Lindor will do anything before seeing the Mookie benchmark a year from now, and of course the FG piece is just a tweak at ownership it only expects to cry poverty.

Cohort is for the Arenado opt-out, Bryant, Baez, Correa, Story, Seager basket of infielders available alongside Lindor for $$$$ two years out.  The 2022 Orioles presently have 21.119M committed to MLB payroll.

A parsing of the five shortstops, in a fit of Ryan Mountcastle day after exuberance.

Arranged from youngest to oldest - ages and career OPS+ given as of today on B-Ref, OAA given as of today on Savant using "ALL" which I believe comprises 2017-2019.

Mike Elias's bestie Carlos Correa: 25.335, 2468 PA, 129 OPS+, 20 OAA

Corey Seager: 26.117, 2160 PA, 127 OPS+, 7 OAA

Francisco Lindor: 26.282, 3360 PA, 117 OPS+, 30 OAA

Javier Baez: 27.265, 2573 PA, 104 OPS+, 18 OAA

Trevor Story 27.281, 2400 PA, 113 OPS+, 17 OAA

All five SS's in the Top 14 of the 38 shortstops Savant gives results for when set on ALL.
