Stats from Fangraphs.

Correa and Lindor are pretty close to even in every fielding stat from this season, except for Correa having 17 more assists. According to Fangraphs, Correa has a 50/55 current/future fielding scouting report, while Lindor has a 55/60 ranking. Lindor is the better fielder by the rankings, but Correa has the better arm. Correa has a 65/65 ranking with throwing arm while Lindor is 60/60. Because Lindor is built more like a shortstop, he might have the better range, but it’s too close to declare a winner here.
