Cautiously optimistic about Josh Lindblom


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/17/2013) In Josh Lindblom, you have within arm's reach a projected two-start option for Fantasy Week 8 (May 20-26) who is eligible at relief pitcher.

You also have a 25-year-old who has yet to start a game in the majors and who seemed destined to spend his entire career in middle relief just last year.

But if his numbers in the heavy-hitting Pacific Coast League this year count for anything, a return to the starting rotation has made him an even better pitcher. In 43 1/3 innings, he has a 2.08 ERA and 0.88 WHIP, allowing just 5.6 hits per nine innings.

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels recently pointed out that Lindblom has three plus pitches and is working on a fourth. A varied arsenal usually plays up better in a starting role than a relief role, so Lindblom strikes me as one of those pitchers who will fare better when stretched out. If I had a roster spot to play with, I might just take a flier on him.


Josh Lindblom to join Rangers' rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2013) The Rangers announced Thursday pitcher Josh Lindblom will be promoted from Triple-A Round Rock to start Monday against the Athletics after Alexi Ogando was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right biceps tendinitis.
