Lindblom up

  • P Josh Lindblom recalled from AAA
  • P Derek Lowe designated for assignment [ Link ]

NOTE: The Rangers needed a starter, so Josh Lindblom was brought up from AAA to do that.   He didn’t do too well in the spring, but he’s had good numbers at AAA so far this year.  4-0, 2.08 ERA in 8 games (7 started) for the Express.  So it was a good choice there.  I am a bit surprised that it cost Derek Lowe his roster spot.  Especially because they had two open spots on the 40 man roster after this move, so they didn’t have to DFA Lowe.  I guess they just wanted to, and this was a timely decision.
