Josh Lindblom is attempting to make a comeback following a sojourn to the Korea Baseball Organization, and suitors are lining up for the right-hander.

The Los Angeles Angels and Detroit Tigers are among the teams interested in Lindblom, according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network.

Morosi later added that the free agent has multiple multi-year offers on the table.

The pair of American League clubs are the latest to express interest in Lindblom, with the Toronto Blue Jays also reportedly pursuing him.

Lindblom last appeared in the majors in 2017, making four relief appearances for the Pittsburgh Pirates. After the Pirates released the now 32-year-old, Lindblom wound up finishing the year with the Lotte Giants of the KBO and then spending the last two seasons with the Doosan Bears.

He authored a 2.50 ERA and 1.00 WHIP over 194 2/3 innings last year, striking out 6.5 batters per walk and winning the 2019 KBO League Most Valuable Player of the Year award.

In 147 innings at the major-league level while playing for the Pirates, Oakland Athletics, Texas Rangers, Philadelphia Phillies, and Los Angeles Dodgers, Lindblom has posted a 4.10 ERA and 4.27 FIP.
