Not long after being drafted, former Mississippi State pitcher Jacob Lindgren found himself as a player not expected to wait long to be playing in the pinstripes of the New York Yankees. The wait to put on that uniform will end Sunday as Lindgren will be called up for Sunday's contest according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.
Lindgren has pitched well since being selected in the second round of the June 2014 draft by the Yankees, who used their first pick in the draft to select the Bulldog lefty less than a year ago.
Lindgren has pitched 22 innings this year, and he has struck out 29 in that time with a 1.23 ERA. For his professional career, he has 77 strikeouts in 46.2 innings pitched.
The Yankees had to use a position player and a bleeding of the bullpen to get out their loss to the Texas Rangers Saturday.
The Yankees, who are on a five game losing streak and losers of nine of their last ten, will host the Rangers in a game scheduled for a 7:05 pm (ET) first pitch at Yankee Stadium.
