BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Aussie strikeout king Shane Lindsay managed to avoid walking more than a man per inning this year, a feat you can file alongside conquering halitosis on the list of achievements for which there are no congratulatory greeting cards; the Sox were so impressed, they removed him from their 40-man roster, and he signed a minor-league deal with the Dodgers.
2010 Lindsay has filthy stuff, featuring mid-90s heat and a nasty breaking ball that have helped him rack up 12.5 K/9 for his minor-league career. But injuries have derailed his progress and moved him to the bullpen, where he’s just now reached the high minors. Lindsay hands out walks like Halloween candy, though the club hopes it’s just a matter of more work before he finds his command. If they’re right, he’ll become a late-inning bullpen asset; if not, he’ll be just another cautionary tale.
2009 An Australian righty with a golden arm, Shane Lindsay has had a career's worth of injuries at 23, but when he's healthy he dominates, so he'll keep getting chances.
2007 Shane Lindsay had a power profile, but surgery to repair a torn labrum will knock the hard-luck Aussie out indefinitely. It`s a shame, because he`s a firecracker when healthy.

Dave! Nothing major, though keep an eye out for Oliver Box, a catcher the A's signed. I think Lindsey still might have some role in the big leagues down the road, but likely as a reliever. (Kevin Goldstein)
