WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Lindemuth took the phrase “take one for the team” to the extreme.  The second baseman has been hit-by-pitch 64 times over his three seasons of college ball, the equivalent of just over one full major league season.  He doesn’t take many walks or strike out a lot, so when he isn’t getting hit, he is putting the ball in play.  Lindemuth also has a little bit of pop in his bat and showed strong stolen base skills as a sophomore, though that seemed to disappear in 2013.  He started every game as a freshman and had a fairly strong prep resume, but was not drafted out of High School.  He has another year of eligibility left, so he’s not a guarantee to sign.
