Angels add bullpen help, sign Matt Lindstrom

3 Comments

Matt Lindstrom, who spent part of last season as the White Sox’s closer, has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Angels that includes an invitation to spring training.

Lindstrom struggled and was hurt for a lot of last season, posting a 5.03 ERA in 34 innings overall, but the 35-year-old right-hander has a solid track record of quality setup man work.

Lindstrom has a 3.68 ERA in 421 career innings, including a 2.95 ERA and 122/51 K/BB ratio in 162 innings from 2011-2013. He seems like a good bet to crack the Opening Day roster.
