The New York Mets shortstop, Francisco Lindor is primed for a bounceback season. The four-time all-star had a rough first season in the orange and blue. The 28-year-old is too good to not regain his form, and fans should expect big things from Lindor in 2022.
Lindor has been one of the best shortstops in the league for most of his career. Just last year,Tim Kelly of Audacy ranked the Mets star third among the MLB's best shortstops going into 2021. Fans have had very high expectations for the four-time all-star, since he signed a massive ten year deal with New York.
Francisco Lindor is one of the game's top hitters when he is at his best and will have a positive impact on the Mets
The two-time Silver Slugger is capable of becoming an MVP caliber player for the Mets, as he finished top 15 in the MVP voting with Cleveland in four consecutive seasons. Lindor is one of game's top hitter when he is at his best, as he has finished with at least 30 homeruns in three consecutive seasons from 2017-2019.
The 28-year-old is still in the prime years of his career. Fans should expect Lindor to get back on track this upcoming season, as he has even expects himself to bounce back too.
Lindor should play a big role in the Mets lineup this upcoming season. New York's shortstop is going to be one of the centerpieces of a stacked lineup, which features other sluggers such as Pete Alonso and Starling Marte. Fans should expect Lindor to help the Mets lineup achieve the high expectations they posses.
Lindor is one of the best defensive shortstops in the MLB
Throughout his seven-year career, the two-time Gold Glover has always been magnificent on the defensive side. Lindor has never committed more than 15 errors in a season during his career, as he is one of the games smoothest shortstops.
The Mets have one of the leagues best defensive shortstops on their hands, and fans should expect to see Lindor as a Gold Glove finalist towards the end of the season.
Lindor's 2022 season outlook
Other than the shortstops first season in orange and blue, he has consistently been one of the baseballs most dangerous hitters. He is capable of producing MVP caliber numbers when he is on top of his game, as we have seen in his prior seasons.
The four-time all-star is too good of a player to have another dreadful season with the New York Mets. Francisco Lindor should most certainly be able to put together a bounce back season in 2022.
