The Texas Rangers have recalled right-handed starter Josh Lindblom who will take Alexi Ogando‘s spot in the starting rotation. To make room for him, Texas has opted to designate right-handed pitcher Derek Lowe for assignment. He will have to clear waivers and accept an assignment for him to remain in the Rangers system.
In other moves, Texas has optioned catcher Robinson Chirinos...
I only saw and heard bits of tonight’s game due to storms in my area. This didn’t end up being the worst thing ever.
Josh Lindblom made a spot start (I hope) tonight, and while it wasn’t enjoyable, I didn’t expect much more. Lindblom lasted 4.2 innings, giving up four runs on seven hits and two walks. Wish he could have stayed in longer, but as far as I know, he’s not...
The Rangers have designated right-hander Derek Lowe for assignment to make room for Josh Lindblom, their starter Monday night against Oakland.
Lowe made the big league roster out of spring training after signing a minor league contract in March, then allowed 13 earned runs in 13 innings. The 39-year-old gave up seven hits and eight runs with two homers in his last 2 2-3 innings...

ARLINGTON, Texas Veteran Derek Lowe, who struggled this year for the Texas Rangers, was designated for assignment Monday to create room for Josh Lindblom.
Lowe, who was signed in spring training to a 1.25 million deal, was 1-0 with a 9.00 ERA in nine appearances for Texas. He pitched Sunday, his first appearance in a week, and allowed two runs in 23 of an inning.
The move means...
Lone Star Dugout's Jason Cole recently sat down with Triple-A Round Rock pitching coach Brad Holman. In the interview, Holman discusses right-hander Josh Lindblom, who is slated to start for the Rangers on Monday, along with the early dominance of Neal Cotts and the struggles of RHPs Jake Brigham and Lisalverto Bonilla.
SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Josh Lindblom has had a unique experience while playing only one full season in the major leagues.
The reliever has already been traded twice for All-Star players.
Lindblom is now in Texas after being dealt during baseball's winter meetings from Philadelphia with another reliever for longest-tenured Rangers player Michael Young. Less than six months...
OFF YOU GO
Third baseman Michael Young has reportedly waived his no-trade clause, allowing the Rangers to trade him to the Phillies.
Josh Lindblom has limited righties to a .191 batting average in two seasons.
The Phillies’ bullpen was a disaster in 2012, placing 21st in ERA (3.94) and 29th in eighth-inning ERA (4.89). The ‘pen blew 19 saves — 11 more than their 2011 total. And it lost 27 games after losing just 18 in 2011.
So it made sense that when the Phillies were set to unload Shane Victorino and Hunter...
Best lede ever, right? Well, this is far from the best trade ever. I'm not upset the Dodgers are close to sending reliever Josh Lindblom and an unknown second player to the Phillies for Shane Victorino.
I don't have time for instant analysis, but I'm not especially in favor of this deal. Victorino is a marginal upgrade at best and the Dodgers still need a...
SAN DIEGO -- Not a bad couple of days for a guy who wasnt even supposed to be on the Dodgers' roster.
But Ted Lilly is lost to a stiff neck to start the season, and on the final day they can add a reliever to the team, they tell Josh Lindblom hell be on the opening-day roster.
Then opening day arrives Thursday, Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw is sick and can go only three innings...
