The Cleveland Indians are reportedly working on a contract extension for star shortstop Francisco Lindor, according to the son of Indians general manager Mike Chernoff.

Brody Chernoff joined the Indians broadcast booth and told announcer Tom Hamilton that his father is"trying to get Lindor to play for seven more years.”

It's a little bit more of a scoop than Joel Sherman of The New York Post was able to get.

Lindor is coming off a season in which the hit .301 with 15 home runs and 78 RBIs. The Indians recently inked Jose Ramirez to a four extension.

We really hope Brody isn't grounded for sharing this information with the world.
