Matt Lindstrom makes case for keeping closer job

Matt Lindstrom’s first impression as the White Sox’ closer hasn’t been a good one, and he knows it. He hopes that manager Robin Ventura extends his leash and gives him more time to prove he’s up to handling the role. It appears as though Ventura will. Not to make excuses, but Lindstrom, a setup man for most of his career with save seasons of 15 and 23 with the Florida Marlins and Houston Astros, has battled to get his 34-year-old body right since spring...

Lindstrom blows save; Twins rally to edge White Sox

Trevor Plouffe drove in the tying run with a single, Oswaldo Arcia tripled him home for the go-ahead, and the Minnesota Twins rallied in the ninth inning against closer Matt Lindstrom and the White Sox for a 10-9 victory Thursday at U.S. Cellular Field. Marcus Semien had broken an 0-for-13 slump to start the season by breaking a tie in the eighth inning with a solo home run to left field against left-hander Caleb Thielbar, giving the Sox a 9-8 lead. The Sox were...

A look at Matt Lindstrom's cutter

A look at Matt Lindstrom's cutter

Matt Lindstrom had a good day on Monday. He was announced as the closer, started the season with a save, and debuted his new pitch - a cutter. Throughout the spring, we heard all about Matt Lindstrom's oblique injury and the effect it had on the closer competition. In the end, he was declared the winner Monday morning. With all this spring drama, I missed something in all the stories. Matt Lindstrom throws a cutter now. Throughout his career, Lindstrom has relied most on his four-seam fastball, slider, and sinker with a rare changeup. Like a lot of pitchers, Lindstrom's fastball has...

Closer Matt Lindstrom celebrates appointment with save

Twenty-four hours after learning the job was his, Matt Lindstrom got his first save as the White Sox’ closer. Lindstrom pitched a scoreless ninth in the Sox’ 5-3 victory Monday, allowing a double to Chris Colabello and fanning Trevor Plouffe of the Twins. Manager Robin Ventura and GM Rick Hahn left the door open that bullpen roles can change, but if Lindstrom, 34, holds steady, the job will be his to lose. He got the news after the Sox’ workout Sunday at U.S....

Sox announce Lindstrom as closer

It's sunny, 65 degrees (feels like about 110), the wind at U.S. Cellular Field is gusting out to left field and, in a little over an hour, the White Sox can officially the 99-loss 2013 season in the past. While it doesn't look like the Sox are going to make the playoffs for the first time since 2008, at least they should be more interesting and easier to watch over the next six months. We shall see. Here are some Opening Day notes as White Sox ace Chris Sale prepares to face the Twins, who again stack up as one of the worst teams in baseball. -Matt Lindstrom - not Nate Jones - opens the...
