Lindblom’s endless efforts to raise the turnover by investing three months.
The endless efforts of right-handed pitcher Josh Lindblom (34, Milwaukee Brewers) from the KBO League are the talk of the town. It took three months to increase the number of turns.”
Lindblom posted on his SNS on the 22nd (Korea time) that “My goal for this off-season was to increase the efficiency of the number of turns.” “We prepared since mid-October when the 2020 season ended, and it took three months to increase the number of turns.”
According to Lindblom’s video and baseball servant data, Lindblom’s rotational efficiency after the end of the 2020 season was 82%, but it improved to 97%. The number of four-seam fastball turns, which averaged 2,551, also rose to 2,749. It is widely believed that the higher the number of turns, the lower the frequency of hits by batters.

Lindblom said, “I focused on holding my index finger a little longer when I threw the ball. Of course, there were times when I was frustrated in the process of changing my habits. Eventually, I needed time. Most people couldn’t stand it and gave up. “But I’ve been patient and achieved it.
Lindblom left the Doosan Bears ahead of the 2020 season and wore a Milwaukee uniform. It was a good condition to receive 9125,000 dollars (about 10 billion won) for three years. “In the KBO League in the 2019 season, he received a good reward for his good record with 20 wins, 3 losses and an ERA of 2.50.”
The first year of the three-year contract did not meet expectations. He played in 12 games (10 starts) in the 2020 season, but was average with two wins, four losses and a 5.16 ERA. Suffering from a back injury, he went back and forth between the bullpen and the starting lineup. The team recruited him based on his role as a starting pitcher for two to three teams, but it was not good. I wonder if Lindblom will rebound with an improved number of rotations as a weapon.
