If you aren't hip to Francisco Lindor yet, trust me, you will be soon. The Cleveland Indians' eighth overall pick in 2011 was finally called up to the Big Leagues last season, and he proceeded to treat the baseball like his sworn enemy. He hit over .300 and mashed 11 home runs, a surprising number for a guy who looks like he could still be in high school. On the field, his dominance at shortstop helped the Indians climb from dead last in the league in defense into the top 15 by season's end.
The Indians have high hopes for Lindor in 2016, his first full season in the majors, and Lindor spent much of spring training putting in the work to ensure he never comes close to experiencing a sophomore slump. in a recent commercial from Under Amour that follows Lindor around for a day, the shortstop is seen arriving at the Tribe's spring training facility in Goodyear, Arizona at 6:30 a.m. to get in some serious agility training—lateral movement over mini-hurdles and resisted sprints holding a football.
Lindor's day is far from over. The Puerto Rico native then hits the batting cages before the full team workout that follows.
Watch the entire spot above, and get ready for another big season from the Tribe shortstop.
