The left-handed hitter was spending his second year with Lancaster. He batted .295 with 10 home runs and 72 RBI for the Barnstormers in 2016 and was named to the Atlantic League’s year-end All-Star Team. He was also the MVP of the 2016 Atlantic League All-Star Game, held in Lancaster.

Following the season, Gindl was signed by the Chicago White Sox. He was released by Chicago near the end of spring training

Gindl has prior Major League experience with the Milwaukee Brewers. He batted .242 with five home runs and 14 RBI for Milwaukee in 2013, hitting a walkoff home run against the Miami Marlins.

“Caleb was a very valuable player for us on the field and in the locker room,” said Barnstormers manager Ross Peeples. “We will miss him, but he deserves this opportunity.”

The Lancaster Barnstormers are an American professional baseball team based in Lancaster, PA. They are a member of the Freedom Division of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball, which is not affiliated with Major League Baseball.
