The New York Mets are finalizing a deal to acquire Francisco Lindor from the Cleveland Indians, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

If the deal is completed as expected, shortstop Andres Gimenez would be part of the package going back to the Indians, sources told Passan.

Since his MLB debut in 2015, Lindor ranks first among all shortstops in WAR (28.4), home runs (138) and extra-base hits, according to ESPN Stats & Information research.

He also ranks second in RBIs (411) and runs (508), and fifth in OPS (.835) and slugging (.485), while batting .285. At 27, Lindor has earned four All-Star nods, two Gold Gloves and two Silver Sluggers to go with a World Series appearance in 2016 and a second-place finish in the AL Rookie of the Year voting in 2015.
