Lindstrom Gets Sixth Save in Interesting Fashion

Florida closer Matt Lindstrom made it sort of interesting, but he was able to record his sixth save of the season on Saturday in a 3-1 win over the Rockies. Lindstrom allowed a base hit and a walk in his outing but struck out two to get the save, allowing no runs. Lindstrom doesn’t always get out there and shut down the other team completely and has a propensity to overpitch sometimes. However, he can throw gas and should get a decent amount of save opportunities with the Marlins. Keep him active as a No. 2 Fantasy RP and just hope he avoids the big inning. (CBS Sports)

Lindstrom Pitches Another Strong Yet Worthless Inning

Marlins closer Matt Lindstrom worked a scoreless ninth inning on Wednesday in an 8-6 loss to the Braves on Wednesday. Lindstrom walked a batter and struck one out, needing 16 pitches to get out of the inning. The Marlins are struggling to get wins at this point in the season and Lindstrom does not have a save since April 29 at the Mets. He had one horrible outing against the Phillies on April 24 but hasn’t allowed a run since in five appearances. He’s not the most dominant of closers but he remains a No. 2 Fantasy option considering the heat he brings. (CBS Sports)
