Indians top prospect Francisco Lindor played in Sunday’s Futures Game at New York’s Citi Field, then returned home to pack his bags for Double-A Akron, where he will debut on Tuesday night after spending the first three-plus months of the 2013 regular season with the High-A Carolina Mudcats.

“My focus right now is playing Double-A baseball every day,” Lindor told reporters in Akron on Tuesday afternoon. “Yeah, I see (Cleveland) in the future, but I’m focusing on playing today and winning today.”

The 19-year-old shortstop was batting .306/.373/.410 with 20 stolen bases and 51 runs scored in 83 games this season for Carolina. He was ranked fifth overall on Baseball America‘s midsummer Top 50.

    This kid could be amazing if he can develop some power.
