Lindblom’s New Challenge, Transformation into the Milwaukee Front
Lindblom transforms into the Milwaukee Brewers front. ‘Reviewing the Brew’, which specializes in Milwaukee news, recently announced through its official SNS that “Milwaukee has hired Lindblom, a veteran of 15 years, as a front desk.” He is expected to primarily take on the role of coaching and nurturing young players. As he has 메이저사이트 experienced both American and Korean baseball, interest is focused on what he will show as a frontman.
Lindblom made his first steps on the Major League Baseball (MLB) stage in 2011 in a Los Angeles Dodgers uniform. He went 5-8 with an ERA of 3.82 in 110 games for 4 seasons until 2014. He is a familiar face even to Korean fans. He played in the KBO league wearing the uniform of Lotte (2015-2017) and Doosan (2018-2019). 2019 was particularly hot. He went 20-3 with an ERA of 2.50 in 30 games. He took first place in wins, winning percentage (0.870), and strikeouts (189), and even swept the regular league MVP and Golden Glove.
Using his success in Korea as a springboard, he returned to the big leagues. In December 2019, he signed a three-year, $9.125 million contract with Milwaukee. Unfortunately, it did not leave a big impact as expected. In 2020, he had an average ERA of 5.16 with 2 wins and 4 losses in 12 games. In 2021, he also performed poorly with an ERA of 9.72 in 8 games. Eventually, on May 40 of that year, he was removed from the roster and demoted to the minor leagues. In the 2022 season, Milwaukee’s minor league Triple A was flat with an average ERA of 4.05 with 9 wins and 7 losses, but there was no call from MLB.
After his contract with Milwaukee expired, he failed to find a new team. He bid farewell to the familiar ground. On the 13th, he also directly announced his retirement through his SNS. At the time, Lindblom said, “Every morning for the past seven months, I thought, ‘What does it mean to finish well?’” and “I think now is the timing. Baseball taught me more than 30 years of winning and losing. I want to say goodbye with this letter.” After that, the second act of his life as a front desk opened.
