"Hear Lindblom Brewers deal is about 9.1M for 3 years"

Brewers have lots of money to spend....that is about $3 million or so toward 2020 payroll.

It makes a little more sense after seeing his Korean stats.

Miles Mikolas Part Deux?

Except Korea instead of Japan.

Nice thought! Seems like a low risk signing, it's a dice roll move!

800+ innings pitched over 5 years in Korea seems like a pretty reliable arm. Here's hoping we start getting pitchers who can go more than 5 innings!!

With those innings totals you'd think the plan is to give him a shot at the rotation initially and move to pen if it doesn't work out. Anyone have info on velocity and arsenal?

Here's the blurb from the Fangraphs top 50 free agent write up:

Player Notes
An unsigned Astros third rounder in 2005, Lindblom has gone from being Purdue’s closer to a fast-tracked Dodgers prospect to being twice-traded for former All Stars (Shane Victorino and Michael Young) in a six-month span before kicking around waivers (Texas, Oakland, Pittsburgh) and Korea (Lotte Giants) for a couple of years, coming back to MLB (Pittsburgh, again), and then heading back to Korea (Doosan Bears) for what have been the two best seasons of his career.

Lindblom won the 2018 Choi Dong-Won award, the KBO’s equivalent of the Cy Young, then led the league in innings (194) and posted a .997 WHIP during the Doosan Bears’ 2019 championship run (Doosan has won three of the last five KBO titles).

Now 32, Lindblom is coming off of a one-year, $1.7 million deal. His fastball is below big league average, operating in the low-90s, but he has developed an above-average splitter, and has good glove-side command of a serviceable slider/cutter. He also has a loopy, low-70s curveball.

Durability — he has just three IL stints in a decade — and repertoire depth push Lindblom toward the starter end of the spectrum, while a need to work heavily with the offspeed stuff so his fastball doesn’t get crushed slides him back toward the bullpen. The combo looks like a long relief type, one especially suited to face a lineup full of lefties because of the split, and his ability to tie up lefties with that slider/cutter.

He's now a Brewer pitcher, so guessing a fastball and a slider he's "working on."

Plan to use him as a starter...not that this is a terrible move, but I really wish the Brewers would stop treating starting pitching as the redheaded step child. Cheap signings hoping it works out is not a way to build a staff. It might work for a year or possibly two, but long term, no way.

Offensive numbers were down in KBO last season after they "de-juiced" the baseball, but he appears to have been consistently good even in the two years prior.

Meh. Teams that make moves like this generally are looking for
a 5th starter type. We need a 2 3 4 now.

I like the deal. Low risk signing. Hopefully adds some stability to the rotation and can probably be serviceable out of the bullpen if he can't hand in the rotation. Really affordable as well. I did see Passan tweet there are performance bonuses that could double the contract cost, but even still it's super affordable compared to some of the other back end starter types who have signed already.

Still need at least 1 more starter if not 2.

I like it. If he doesn't succeed as a starter, he has a chance to at least contribute as a reliever. And the money isn't prohibitive.

Slowly but surely, things are coming together.

Random Observation: Gerrit Cole will make more in his first 9 starts with the Yankees than Lindblom will make over the next three years.

You hit the nail on the head. The Brewers in regards to pitching sign guys that would normally be back end of rotation guys and make them amongst their top starters. NOT a sustainable strategy.

Can you relax? You might as well become a Dodger/Yankee fan.
