Matt Lindstrom sent down

New, 2 comments

Matt Lindstrom is now in Albuquerque.

After their loss to the Rays on Tuesday, the Marlins optioned reliever Matt Lindstrom to Triple-A Albuquerque. Lindstrom went 1-1 with a 5.18 ERA in 30 games this season.

Lindstrom needs to work on his breaking pitches which were either hanging or causing the catcher to lunge desperately in order to keep them from going to screen.  Which makes Albuquerque a curious spot to send him.  But then again, the Inn may be full in Carolina.

I have no idea who will be called up at this point, but my guess is Tankersley will rejoin the team.
