Francisco Lindor FaceTimed Javy Baez before All-Star Game at-bat

Tuesday’s All-Star Game gave a glimpse of one of baseball’s best bromances.

Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor hilariously FaceTimed Chicago Cubs counterpart Javy Baez before Baez’s at-bat in the third inning against Minnesota Twins ace Jose Berrios. Lindor made the revelation to reporters after the game and said he was trash-talking Baez, per MLB.com’s Dan Hayes.

Baez wound up flying out on the first pitch he saw, so it’s entirely possible that Lindor got into his head. The former NLCS MVP was a good sport however.

Despite the smack talk, the two players are close friends. They were drafted with back-to-back picks in the first round of the 2011 draft and play together on Puerto Rico’s national team, making for a fearsome middle infield combo. Perhaps in next year’s Midsummer Classic though, Baez will return the favor by giving Lindor the wrong batting helmet.
