LIVE: Francisco Lindor News Conference (www.mlb.com)

, the four-time All-Star shortstop acquired by the Mets from the Indians in a six-player trade last month, is holding a news conference at the team’s Spring Training facility in Port St. Lucie, Fla. It’s being shown live on MLB.com and Mets.com.

Lindor, 27, has won two Gold Gloves, in 2016 and ’19, and led the Major Leagues with 129 runs scored in ’18. In addition, Lindor leads all big league shortstops in FanGraphs’ Wins Above Replacement (25.2) since his first full season in the Majors in ’16. But for the Mets in particular, the opportunity to solidify the premium shortstop position — something they haven’t had since José Reyes departed as a free agent following the 2011 season — should be a tantalizing possibility.
