Both players have had the same success stealing bases in the major leagues, but the difference between the two players is that Correa has four more steals than Lindor. One of the things that Correa really worked on in the minor leagues is his stolen base game because people told him that he could not steal bases in the bigs.
According to Fangraphs, Lindor has a scouting ranking of 60 current and 60 future in terms of speed on the bases. Correa has a scouting ranking of 55 current and 50 future. While Lindor might have the better ability to run, the stats this season says that Correa has been more successful. Long term, Lindor might be better.
Advantage: Correa (barely)
