Brewers' Josh Lindblom: Ready to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom already feels capable of throwing 90 pitches in an outing, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

He completed a four-inning simulated game Sunday and will get approximately three more exhibition outings in before the regular season, working on about five days of rest. Lindblom is one of four locks to start games for the Brewers in a traditional sense, along with Brandon Woodruff, Brett Anderson and Adrian Houser.

Brewers' Josh Lindblom: Effective thus far
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom allowed one earned run over three innings in Sunday's spring game against the Reds. He gave up three hits and walked one batter while striking out another.

Lindblom spent four of the past five years pitching in Korea, but he returned stateside over the offseason and signed a three-year contract with the Brewers. His contract put him on track to break camp with a spot in the starting rotation, and his results thus far this spring -- he has tossed six innings and has given up three earned runs, ceded six hits, and posted a 5:1 K:BB -- have not changed that.

Brewers' Josh Lindblom: Starting spring opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Craig Counsell said Lindblom will start Saturday's Cactus League opener against the Rangers, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The 32-year-old inked a three-year, $9.1 million deal in December and will open up spring training for the Brewers. Lindblom is making his return to the majors from the Korean Baseball Organization after posting a 2.50 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in 30 starts last season to earn MVP honors.

Brewers' Josh Lindblom: Reaches agreement with Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom signed a three-year, $9.1 million contract with the Brewers on Wednesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

Lindblom last pitched in the majors for the Pirates in 2017, but he was effective as a starting pitcher in Korea, where he posted a 2.50 ERA in 30 starts for the Doosan Bears in 2019 en route to being named the KBO MVP. The 32-year-old's major-league resume mainly includes work out of the bullpen, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him work into the rotation given his success as a starter in Korea.

Josh Lindblom: Returning stateside
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom is expected to receive multi-year MLB offers after he becomes a KBO free agent Saturday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

The 32-year-old last played in affiliated baseball back in 2017. In 147 career major-league innings, most of which came in relief, he recorded a 4.10 ERA. He's been exclusively a starting pitcher since moving to Korea and was recently named KBO MVP after posting a 2.50 ERA in 30 starts for the Doosan Bears.

Josh Lindblom: Sticking in Korea
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom re-signed Thursday with the Doosan Bears of the Korea Baseball Organization on a one-year, $1.7 million contract, Dan Kurtz of MyKBO.net reports. The deal also includes a $70,000 signing bonus and is worth up to $150,000 in incentives.

The 31-year-old, who last appeared in affiliated ball in 2017 with the Pirates, owns a career 4.10 ERA and 1.37 WHIP over 114 career big-league outings. Much of that success came in 2011 and 2012, so Lindblom likely would have had to settle for a minor-league deal if he elected to pitch in North America this season. Understandably, he'll opt for the higher payday and remain in South Korea for a second straight campaign.

Josh Lindblom: Signs to stay in South Korea
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindbloom signed a one-year, $1.45 million contract to play for the Doosan Bears in South Korea, the Korea Herald reports.

Lindbloom returned to the U.S. last season to play for the Pirates after playing three seasons in the Korea Baseball Organization. However, he was released in July after posting a 7.84 ERA in 10.1 innings and moved back to South Korea to play for the Lotte Giants. It sounds like he'll finish his career in South Korea.

Josh Lindblom: Dropped by Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Josh Lindblom: Activated from DL, sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Josh Lindblom: Will start rehab assignment Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Josh Lindblom: Heading to disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Josh Lindblom: Called up by Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Pirates' Josh Lindblom: Reassigned to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom was reassigned to the Pirates' minor-league camp Tuesday, MLB.com's Adam Berry reports.

Following a two-year stint in the Korean Baseball Organization, Lindblom returned stateside to compete for a spot in the Pittsburgh bullpen during spring training, but his bid ended up falling short after he was tagged for six runs (five earned) on 13 hits and two walks over 10.2 innings in Grapefruit League play. Lindblom is expected to open the campaign with Triple-A Indianapolis, where he'll build up arm strength in preparation for a potential starting role, if the Pirates are unsatisfied with their existing rotation depth entering the season.

Pirates' Josh Lindblom: Looking good in spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom retired all six batters he faced Monday and has yet to allow a run in five Grapefruit League innings.

He spent the last two years pitching in South Korea and is looking to find a niche in Pittsburgh's bullpen. The one-time Dodgers prospect is off to a fine start but his fate will likely come down to a numbers game. Most likely, Lindblom will begin 2017 at Triple-A with a potential mid-season callup on tap.

Pirates' Josh Lindblom: Signs NRI deal with Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindblom agreed to a minor league contract with the Pirates on Friday that includes an invitation to spring training, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

A former second-round draft pick, Lindblom spent the past two seasons in the Korean Baseball Organization, compiling an even 23-23 record to go with a 4.33 ERA and a 7.7 K/9. The right-hander does have a sizable amount of major league experience as a starter and as a reliever, although his past statistics suggest that he's more likely to spend 2017 as an organizational depth piece.
