Lindstrom has sore shoulder
Closer Matt Lindstrom has a sore right shoulder, and he will undergo an MRI on Monday.
Most likely, he is done pitching for Team USA. The bigger concern now is the regular season.
In the eighth inning on Sunday against the Netherlands, he was lifted with two outs because of the shoulder discomfort.
Lindstrom began stretching his right side during a sequence with Sharnol Adriana, who lifted a sacrifice fly to right field. Lindstrom gave up a homer to Bryan Engelhardt in the inning, and he nearly caused a bench-clearing incident when his fastball to Vince Rooi sailed to the screen.
Lindstrom has experienced back tightness the past few years. But this time it is his shoulder.
