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.
Lindblom (knee) threw a round of live batting practice Thursday, Sophia Minnaert of Bally Sports Wisconsin reports. Reserve catcher Luke Maile took some swings against Lindblom, as did rehabbing outfielders Christian Yelich (back) and Lorenzo Cain (quadriceps). The fact that Lindblom is back on the mound just five days after landing on the 10-day injured list suggests that he's already making good progress in his recovery from a right knee effusion. Once the Brewers deem him ready to return from the IL, Lindblom will likely settle back into a long-relief role out of the Milwaukee bullpen.
Lindblom was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with right knee effusion. Lindblom struggled mightily as a long reliever in Friday's blowout loss to the Cubs, and his injury may have contributed to his struggles. The right-hander allowed eight runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out five in 3.2 innings Friday and will now miss time due to a knee issue. It's not yet clear when Lindblom will be cleared to return. Outfielder Corey Ray was recalled by the Brewers in a corresponding move.
