‘Lin Dong-won’ Lindblom retires from active duty… “Baseball means more than winning and losing.”

Josh Lindblom (36), who was selected as the MVP of the KBO League regular season in 2019, has finished his active career.

On the 13th, Lindblom said through his social network service (SNS) account, “Baseball has taught me a greater meaning than winning and losing over the past 30 years. In addition, he made me a person who can say goodbye through this letter.” 온라인카지노

Lindblom made his major league debut in 2011 with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He subsequently appeared in 114 games over five seasons, going 5-8 with a 4.10 earned run average. In 2015, he knocked on the KBO league stage wearing a Lotte uniform. After serving as Lotte’s signature pitcher for three seasons, he moved to Doosan in 2018 and rose to the ranks of the aces representing the KBO League.

The highlight of the KBO League days was in 2019. He reached 20 wins (3 losses) and recorded an earned run average of 2.50, winning the most wins, winning percentage, and strikeouts. He won the regular season MVP and Golden Glove all at once.

His career record in the KBO League is 63 wins and 34 losses in 130 games over 5 seasons, and an average ERA of 3.55. His overwhelming pitch and game management skills reminded him of Choi Dong-won in his prime, earning him the honorable nickname of ‘Lin Dong-won’.

His stellar performance in 2019 later set the stage for his return to the major leagues. In 2020, he signed a contract with Milwaukee for a total of $9,125,000 over three years and returned to the big leagues.

Lindblom, who went 9-7 with a 4.05 earned run average after going down to Triple-A in the minor leagues last year, decided to retire when his contract with Milwaukee expired.
