SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Josh Lindblom has had a unique experience while playing only one full season in the major leagues.
The reliever has already been traded twice for All-Star players.
Lindblom is now in Texas after being dealt during baseball's winter meetings from Philadelphia with another reliever for longest-tenured Rangers player Michael Young. Less than six months earlier, Lindblom had gone from the Los Angeles Dodgers to the Phillies in a four-player deal for Shane Victorino.
For Lindblom, he says it's like the first day of school all over again.
Rangers manager Ron Washington says there's no expectation for the 25-year-old Lindblom to be like Young.
Lindblom is expected to be a primary setup man in a vastly changed Rangers bullpen. He had 74 combined appearances last season.
