Lindblom cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville on Friday. The 33-year-old was designated for assignment Wednesday by the Brewers and will remain in the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. Lindblom had a 9.72 ERA, 1.98 WHIP and 17:10 K:BB over 16.2 innings, and he'll likely need to show a significant turnaround at Triple-A to receive another big-league chance this season.
Lindblom was designated for assignment Wednesday. The righty reliever failed to make it halfway through the second year of his three-year deal, with his 9.72 ERA this season too egregious to afford him any more time on the Brewers' active roster. Lindblom struggled similarly in a starting role last season, posting a slightly less alarming 5.16 ERA. Left-hander Eric Lauer was recalled Wednesday to fill the DFA'd Lindblom's roster spot.
Lindblom (knee) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Thursday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Lindblom had been on the injured list since April 24 due to right knee effusion. Prior to his injury, he posted a 10.97 ERA and 2.25 WHIP in 10.2 innings across five relief appearances. The right-hander will likely serve as a low-leverage reliever going forward.
Lindblom (knee) rejoined the big-league club Tuesday and will be activated later in the week, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Right knee effusion landed Lindblom on the injured list April 24. The journeyman righty was already off to a rough start in 2021 before an eight-run nightmare raised his ERA to 10.97. He will likely work as a low-leverage long reliever upon his activation.
Lindblom (knee) is scheduled to make a rehab appearance at Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports. Lindblom will be one of three rehabbing Brewers heading to Nashville for its season opener, with position players Jace Peterson (thumb) and Derek Fisher (hamstring) also on track to make appearances in the game. Since the Brewers are viewing Lindblom as a long reliever, he may need to build up his pitch count over at least two rehab outings before he's activated from the 10-day injured list.
