Lindgren has dominated in Triple-A this season, pitching to 1.23 ERA with 29 strikeouts in 22 innings pitched.
Earlier on Saturday, we posted an article on Yankees 101 saying Lindgren should get a shot in favor of David Carpenter. The Yankees must've listened somewhat (I'm kidding, of course), although it'll be Branden Pinder getting the boot after he tossed 48 pitches on Saturday.
Lindgren was drafted last year by the Yanks in the second round and since then has gone from the Gulf Coast League to Triple-A in under a year.
He has earned the nickname Strikeout Factory, so familiarize yourself with that name because the kid has the goods to stick around for a long time. This should add some excitement to a dull, depressing time in the Yankees Universe right now.Read more... Join the Conversation...
