Lindblom, 32, last pitched in the majors for the Pirates in 2017. It was brief, making four appearances between May 7-19. He has spent parts of the last five years in the KBO League in South Korea, pitching for the Lotte Giants from 2015-17 and the Doosan Bears the last two seasons. Lindblom found success with the Bears, amassing an aggregate 35-7 record with a 2.68 ERA and a 346/67 K/BB ratio across 363 1/3 innings.
Lindblom will join the Brewers’ starting rotation which is sorely in need of depth. They are likely not done adding starting pitching this offseason.
