Francisco Lindor Sets Mets' Franchise Record


Francisco Lindor went one-for-three with an RBI in the 6-0 defeat of the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday. 

With that, Lindor batted in his 82nd run, breaking the New York Mets' franchise record for most RBIs by a shortstop in a single season. Lindor has 118 hits in 114 games this season. 

The twenty-eight-year-old switch-hitting shortstop has been phenomenal in his second season with the Mets, slashing a strong .269/.347/.456, with 74 runs scored, 20 home runs, 82 RBIs and 11 stolen bases across 114 games. 

In April of 2021, Lindor signed a whopping 10-year, $341-million contract with the New York Mets, with an average annual value of $34.1 million. 

2021 Lindor had Mets' fans grumbling and upset over the deal, as Lindor put up a middling .230/.322/.412 slash line, with 73 runs scored, 20 home runs, 63 RBIs and 10 stolen bases across 125 games. 

He's now beat all those numbers this season and has done it all in 11 fewer games played. If he can stay healthy for the remainder of the season, Lindor will continue to put up great offensive stats.
