Necessary notes: SS Francisco Lindor, 23 years old. Club control through 2021
2B/3B Jose Ramirez, 25 years old. Contract through 2021, with club options for 2022-23
Combined 2017 WAR: 11.8
Need to know: This is the most exciting, entertaining, dynamic duo in baseball, and they’re both in Cleveland for at least the next four seasons (though it’s hard to imagine the front office won’t lock up Lindor longer-term at some point). We’ve known about Lindor for a while now; he was the No. 8 overall pick in the 2011 MLB Draft and a Futures Game regular, and he hit .313 with a 4.6 WAR in just 99 games as a 21-year-old rookie in 2015. He made his first All-Star Game last year, and this season he’s added power to his considerable skill set — he’s popped 33 this year, more than double the 15 he hit last year. The question isn’t “Has Lindor reached his ceiling?” … it’s “Does Lindor really have a ceiling?”
Ramirez’s rise to stardom kind of came from out of nowhere last year. After two years as an important utility-type player, Ramirez played so well in 2016 that he essentially forced Cleveland to hand him the job that was supposed to belong to well-liked veteran Juan Uribe. Then he hit .500 in the ALDS and .310 in the World Series. That was a harbinger of things to come. With a rock-solid full-time spot in Cleveland’s lineup entering spring training for the first time in his career, Ramirez has been nothing short of incredible; he’s batting .317 with a .953 OPS, 29 homers, 51 doubles and 16 stolen bases, while starting 86 games at third base and 59 at second base (moving over to replace the injured Jason Kipnis).
