New York Mets shortstop Francisco Lindor is having another solid year in his third campaign donning the orange and blue. While we saw last year what Francisco Lindor can be at his very best, this season we've seen a mix between his results from last season and a flashback to some struggles he had during his first season in Flushing.
When you look at what's working well for Lindor, plain and simple he is driving in runs at a great clip as he sits amongst the top-10 leaders in RBIs in all of baseball currently. Lindor and Pete Alonso have accounted for a vast majority of the offense for an offense that has struggled collectively as a whole this season.
Francisco Lindor continues to thrive offensively for the Mets this season, but there is one problem area he may need to fix as the season goes on
Those numbers also translate as one of the most clutch hitters on the Mets roster right now, as he boasts a batting average of over .300 in high-leverage situations to this point in the season as well as an average eclipsing .300 with runners in scoring position with two outs.
When looking at what's not going so well for him at this point, is he is striking out way too much. Lindor currently has over 50 strikeouts and he has only struck out more than 100 times once in his career which was last season when he struck out 133 times. However, last season Lindor boasted some of the best numbers of a shortstop in all of baseball which minimized how much fans may have paid attention to it.
If Lindor can clean up the strikeouts, he will likely see his average climb back closer to what it was last season at .270 as he hasn't had much of a problem putting the ball in play. Lindor overall is having a solid season for the Mets, and as long as he isn't pressing too much at the plate by trying to carry the slumping offense, his third season in Flushing will be another successful one statistically.
