Pirates released RHP Josh Lindblom.

Lindblom was designated for assignment by the team last week, just a few days after he was claimed off waivers from the Athletics. He'll reportedly head to the Korean Baseball Organization where he's expected to sign with the Lotte Giants.

Jeeho Yoo of the Yonhap News Agency hears Josh Lindblom is close to a deal with Lotte Giants of the Korean Baseball Organization.

Lindblom was designated for assignment by the Pirates Friday after being claimed off waivers from the Athletics a few days earlier. The right-hander threw 4 2/3 innings with the A's this past season, and he's appeared in major league games each of the past four years. Going overseas so quickly would be a bit of a surprise for the 27-year-old.

Pirates designated RHP Josh Lindblom for assignment.

Lindblom had just been claimed off waivers earlier this week. The 27-year-old made one appearance in the majors this past season and posted a 5.79 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 60/26 K/BB ratio over 84 innings in Triple-A.

Pirates claimed RHP Josh Lindblom off waivers from the Athletics.

Lindblom was designated for assignment by the A's late last month. The 27-year-old made one appearance in the majors this past season and posted a 5.79 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 60/26 K/BB ratio over 84 innings in Triple-A.
Dec 8 - 3:04 PM

Athletics designated RHP Josh Lindblom for assignment.

Lindblom is one of the casualties of having to add another three players to the roster after the Josh Donaldson deal. The 27-year-old hurler spent the majority of the 2014 season at Triple-A Sacramento where he compiled a 5.79 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 60/26 K/BB ratio.
Nov 28 - 11:01 PM

Josh Lindblom and Arnold Leon are the top options for a spot start for the Athletics during the May 7 doubleheader versus the Mariners.

Lindblom allowed two runs over 4 2/3 innings in a start for the A's during a doubleheader earlier this month. Leon (3.75 ERA) has pitched better than Lindblom (7.23 ERA) at Triple-A, so perhaps he'll get a shot this time.
Apr 29 - 6:42 PM

Athletics optioned RHP Josh Lindblom to Triple-A Sacramento.

Lindblom was the A's 26th man for Wednesday's doubleheader versus the Indians, starting the second game and allowing two runs over 4 2/3 innings. He returns to Sacramento's rotation.
Apr 4 - 8:25 AM

Athletics recalled RHP Josh Lindblom from Triple-A Sacramento.

Lindblom will be the team's 26th man for Wednesday's doubleheader, getting the start in the nightcap versus the Indians' Zach McAllister. He held a 5.46 ERA over eight appearances -- five starts -- for the Rangers last season.
Apr 2 - 1:22 PM

Josh Lindblom is expected to start the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Indians.

The A's haven't made an announcement, but Lindblom's jersey was seen hanging in the clubhouse. Oakland has decided to use their allotted 26th man to start rather than have two members of their rotation get the ball the same day. Scott Kazmir will start the first game of the doubleheader.
Apr 2 - 12:43 PM

Athletics optioned RHP Josh Lindblom to Triple-A Sacramento.

The 26-year-old hurler didn't really do anything to pitch his way off the roster, he was simply unable to crack an extremely talented A's bullpen to begin the year. He'll get another opportunity with the big league club soon enough.
Mar 23 - 7:59 PM

Athletics acquired RHP Josh Lindblom and OF Craig Gentry from the Rangers for OF Michael Choice and INF Chris Bostick.

Lindblom made just eight appearances with the Rangers in 2013, five of them as a starter. While he has enjoyed some success as a reliever in the past, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports hears that the A's plan to keep him as a starter.

Rangers optioned RHP Josh Lindblom to Triple-A Round Rock.

Lindblom allowed six earned runs in just 5 1/3 innings Wednesday in the Rangers' loss to the Orioles. The right-hander has a 5.46 ERA in the majors this season.
Thu, Jul 11, 2013 03:36:00 PM

Josh Lindblom allowed six runs in 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Orioles on Wednesday.

Lindblom was making a spot start -- his first start since June 20 -- and struggled, allowing nine hits and four walks before exiting. He's now got a 5.46 ERA on the year, and he'll likely return to a bullpen role going forward.
Wed, Jul 10, 2013 10:52:00 PM

Josh Lindblom will start on Wednesday against Baltimore.

He gets the nod over Ross Wolf. "[Lindblom's] been doing a good job in Triple-A, and I’d rather keep Wolf in his ... role in the bullpen," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "Lindblom is the one who’s been getting a lot of starter’s innings, and we just want to keep him with that type of focus. If we had to use Wolf, we wouldn’t hesitate." It should just be a spot start for Lindblom, as Alexi Ogando is due back just after the All-Star break.
