He made one start with Oakland in 2014 as he was recalled April 2 to start the second game of a day/night doubleheader with Cleveland. The 27-year-old right-hander allowed two runs in 4.2 innings and had a no decision in the A’s 6-4 loss.
Lindblom was optioned back to Sacramento following the game and spent the balance of the season with the River Cats where he went 4-3 with a 5.79 ERA in 17 games, 16 starts.
