WSC Birth Years: Matt Lindstrom
Born: February 11, 1980
A few months after Matt's option was declined by the Arizona Diamondbacks, the White Sox signed Lindstrom to a one year deal with an option for 2014. Matt started his big league career with the Florida Marlins in 2007. By 2010, he was with the Houston Astros, where he posted a career high twenty-three saves. Lindstrom spent 2011 with the Colorado Rockies and 2012 was split between the Baltimore Orioles and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Matt has mostly been out in the late innings, in non-save situations for the White Sox in 2013. He has racked up over forty innings and has not given up a home run in the first fifty-five games. Depending on what way the Sox go in 2014, Lindstrom may be part of the plans to mop up those late innings.
