The White Sox have signed pitcher Matt Lindstrom, according to Fox Sports. Lindstrom was released by the Angels earlier this week. He pitched for the White Sox in both 2013 and 2014. The 35-year-old has a career ERA of 3.68 with 327 strikeouts and 154 walks.
Angels have released pitcher Matt Lindstrom on Saturday, according to the Los Angeles Times. Lindstrom, 35, posted a 5.03 ERA through 34 innings last season for the White Sox. This spring, he allowed seven earned runs in 5 2/3 innings.
Angels pticher Matt Lindstrom can opt out of his contract if he's not placed on the active roster five days before the regular-season opener, and he believes he may not have an opening to fill in the bullpen, MLB.com reports. "There's a ton of guys in here that have shown they can compete at this level," Lindstrom said. "I just hope I can be one of those guys that breaks camp with the team. It'd be fun to be on a team like this, that has so much potential, especially with how many games they won last year. The pitching staff's going to be solid no matter which way they go, but I'm hoping to be a part of that." Lindstrom has given up seven runs in 4 2/3 spring innings but is excited about how his arm feels this spring. "I can just tell the ball's coming out better," Lindstrom said. "Hopefully, that can just translate to outs."
Angels reliever Matt Lindstrom is feeling pretty good after having ankle surgery last season, according to the Los Angeles Times. Lindstrom struggled with oblique and ankle injuries last season, but has drawn some rave reviews during camp. "Right now, his stuff is very similar to when he was throwing the ball well early last year," Manager Mike Scioscia said. "That's exciting. This guy has closer's stuff. It's just a matter of how consistent he is and if he can keep it going." Lindstrom admitted he came back from ankle surgery too soon last year, and it impacted his numbers. He was able to rehab the injury during the offseason, though, and feels much better now. "I can tell the ball is coming out of my hand better, the way it's supposed to," Lindstrom said. "It wasn't right last year, but now, I don't have any reservations. I can concentrate on getting people out." The 35-year-old posted a 5.03 ERA over 34 innings last season. He's competing for a role in the Angels bullpen this spring.
