Lindblom was released by the Pirates on Thursday. Lindblom will explore the option of returning to Korea, where he spent the better part of the past three years prior to signing a deal with Pittsburgh last December. The right-hander only made four appearances at the major-league level in 2017, allowing nine earned runs in 10.1 innings of work. He spent most of this year with Triple-A Indianapolis, but will move on with no clear role in store with the Pirates' organization.
Lindblom (side) was activated from the disabled list and outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday. Lindblom posted a 7.84 ERA across 10.1 innings before landing on the DL earlier in the season, so he'll head back to Indianapolis until the Pirates need some extra length out of the bullpen.
Lindblom (side) is scheduled to start a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis on Saturday, Stephen J. Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Lindblom, who was placed on the disabled list with left side discomfort, is nearing a return to the big club sooner than expected, according to manager Clint Hurdle. A clearer timetable for his return should become available once he gets a rehab appearance under his belt.
Lindblom (side) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Saturday. The Pirates activated the recently acquired Jhan Marinez to take his spot in the bullpen while Lindblom is on the shelf. Lindblom, who was recalled earlier in the month, has labored through four appearances with the Pirates this season, recording a 7.84 ERA to go with a 2.03 WHIP across 10.1 innings.
Lindblom was called up by the Pirates on Saturday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports. Lindblom got the call to replace Jameson Taillon (groin) on the active roster. He will provide length out of the Pirates' bullpen, effectively taking on Trevor Williams' role with Williams replacing Taillon in the rotation. Lindblom has posted a 2.50 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 14:5 K:BB in 18 innings with Triple-A Indianapolis this season.
