Cleveland Indians All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor finally has something to smile about in 2019. Saturday the team activated Lindor from the 10-day injured list. Frankie has been shut down since February with a calf strain and an ankle sprain.

Lindor is expected to make his Indians regular season debut in the doubleheader against the Atlanta Braves. It’s unlikely he’ll play in both games Saturday. Lindor is not in the starting lineup for game one of the twin bill.

Frankie suffered the calf injury back in January. He was working out in Florida preparing for Spring Training. The ankle injury happened right at the end of Spring Training when Lindor was participating in a minor league game.

Lindor set career highs in home runs, 38, and rbis, 92 in 2018. To make room for Lindor, Hanley Ramirez has been designated for assignment. The Indians can either trade Ramirez or he can accept a minor league assignment with Class AAA Columbus. So if those options don’t happen, Ramirez becomes a free agent.
