RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

The Phillies acquired Lindblom from the Dodgers as part of the Joe Blanton trade in July. He struggled with his control after joining the Phillies, seeing his walk rate balloon to 6.6 BB/9. Lindblom was traded again during the offseason, landing in Texas as part of the Michael Young deal. He maintained a healthy strikeout rate last season, and should have a leg up for a bullpen spot this spring. He's more likely to work in middle relief than to be a factor in late-inning, high leverage situations.

2012

A former second-round pick out of college, Lindblom made his big league debut in 2011, and it can't be described as anything other than a big success. After rotating between the rotation and bullpen in the minors the prior year, Lindblom opened 2011 with a 2.13 ERA in 42.1 Double-A innings before joining the Dodgers. A big leaguer now, Lindblom tossed 29.2 innings of 2.73 ERA ball with a 28:10 K:BB. He doesn't profile as well as a closer as guys like Kenley Jansen, but expect Lindblom to be a key member of the team's bullpen in 2012.

2010

Working both as a starter and a reliever at Double-A and Triple-A, Lindblom finished with a 3.83 ERA and 82:26 K:BB in 96.1 innings. He was used as a reliever in the second half of the season and fared better (2.42 ERA) in that role than he did as a starter (4.05 ERA). A second-round pick in 2008, Lindblom's long-term role has yet to be determined, but he could conceivably compete for a rotation spot this spring.

2009

A second-round pick out of Purdue in 2008, Lindblom impressed in his brief pro debut. Lindblom posted a 1.86 ERA with a 33:4 K:BB in 29 innings for Great Lakes in the Midwest League before making one start for Double-A Jacksonville (five innings, two runs). Lindblom was projected as a reliever before the draft, though his success as a starter for the Dodgers should keep him in that role as he moves through the system. He could move quickly in 2009.
