Blue Jays Interested In Josh Lindblom
The Blue Jays have just included one beginning pitcher this offseason in ex-Brewer Chase Anderson, however he most likely won’t be the last new individual from their revolution in 2020. They’ve since been associated with an assortment of free-operator starters, and you can add right-hander Josh Lindblom to the gathering. Lindblom’s on Toronto’s radar, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports.
Lindblom isn’t anyplace near the highest point of the starter advertise – MLBTR ventures him to win $8MM more than two years on his next agreement – however the 32- year-old looks like a charming decision in the wake of flourishing in Korea from 2017- 19. MLBTR’s Steve Adams as of late featured the greatness Lindblom showed abroad in the wake of bobbing around among a few goals, including the Dodgers, Phillies, Rangers, Athletics and Pirates, from 2011- 17.
Presently, chances are that Lindblom will come back to the majors this offseason, and the group that signs him will without a doubt trust he can verge on getting a charge out of the sort of accomplishment the Cardinals’ Miles Mikolas has since he left Japan to join the Cardinals in December 2017. Mikolas hadn’t demonstrated he was fit for staying in the bigs before he went to Asia in 2015, yet he has been a great starter since returning.
Considerably subsequent to getting Anderson, Toronto’s pivot still looks incredibly slender, as Matt Shoemaker (off one more damage abbreviated season) and the moderately problematic trio of Ryan Borucki, Jacob Waguespack and Trent Thornton make up its staff on paper. Marking Lindblom, given what he has done in the majors to this point, wouldn’t really move considerably more certainty. By the by, regardless of whether he picks the Blue Jays or another person, Lindblom plans to pick his next group before the finish of the Winter Meetings on Dec. 12, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports (membership required).
