As he gets set to begin his fourth season in the big leagues, Francisco Lindor has transformed into Fran-Sisqo Lindor.
Arriving in Goodyear, Az. for the start of spring training, the Cleveland Indians' shortstop opted for a new 'do. Gone are his trademark short golden curls, replaced with a much shorter, silver look-turned-blonde look.
According to his Instagram page, Lindor's new hair is a tribute to his father, Miguel, who also rocks a lighter -- albeit longer cut -- hairstyle. In Thursday post revealing his new look, Lindor says of his father "Mi papa es el Duro," which loosely translates to "My father is [the man].'"
Lindor's new look has drawn an interesting reaction from teammates, many of whom have likened him to Sisqo, the late-1990s pop star most famous for the 'The Thong Song.'
Regardless of what he's wearing underneath his hat, expectations for Lindor remain high in 2018 after the 24-year-old made the All-Star Game in each of his two first full seasons with the Tribe. In less than three full seasons in Cleveland, Lindor has become one of baseball's biggest stars, thanks in large part to his play -- and in some part, to his style.
In 159 games last season, Lindor batted .273 to go along with 33 home runs and 89 runs batted in, as he helped lead the Indians to a second straight American League Central championship. Cleveland will kick off its spring training schedule next Friday, when the Indians host the Reds in Goodyear.
