Wow. Karstens to start Monday, Lincoln to bullpen–Hurdle. Color me surprised. #Pirates

It looks like Brad Lincoln will be heading back to the bullpen and Kevin Correia will remain in the rotation as Jeff Karstens returns from his injury.
Lincoln is coming off an excellent start where he took a no-hitter into the 6th inning against...
The Pirates sent another full house home happy on Saturday afternoon, defeating the Tigers 4-1 for the second straight game. They did it behind a excellent-but-unexpected starting effort and a big swing from their MVP.
If this was Brad Lincoln‘s last start for a while, he certainly went out with a bang. Brad came out of the gate this afternoon with some fantastic stuff, getting...
Last time Max Scherzer faced the Pirates, he struck out a career high 15. This time around, the Bucco Bats cut that number in half while Brad Lincoln was the pitcher that pitched out of his mind. After three crappy starts, B-Rad was the reason the Bucs won Game 2 against the Tigers last night 4-1. That’s three in a row for the Bucs and six out of seven.
Lincoln pitched like his...
In what was likely his last start with Jeff Karstens due back any day now, Brad Lincoln had his best start of the year. He pitched 6 innings of 2-hit ball, giving up just 1 earned run. As Rich stated in his game preview earlier today, Lincoln was a great reliever but has not done [...]
PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Brad Lincoln allowed two hits and a run in six innings, Andrew McCutchen hit a three-run homer and the Pittsburgh Pirates won for the sixth time in seven games with a 4-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday.
Lincoln (4-2) carried a no-hitter through five innings before Ramon Santiago singled to lead off the sixth.
Detroit's Miguel Cabrera homered...
When Jeff Karstens was scratched from his rehab start in AAA Indianapolis yesterday, we immediately thought that his arm had fallen off – with the Pirates’ luck, it wasn’t that far-fetched. But turns out, the Buccos got some good news on the injury front this time. Karstens is back from his 68-day stint on the 15 day DL, and he’ll be starting tonight in Philthy.
On Friday, the Tigers bumbled their way to a loss. Yesterday afternoon, Brad Lincoln pitched maybe the best start of his young career and Andrew McCutchen came up big when the Pirates needed him to and the Pirates pulled out a second win against the Tigers. That's honestly one more win than I expected from the Pirates in this series, so a sweep would be gravy.Given that the pitching...
There has been some speculation that Jeff Karstens would start today, but that seems to be laid to rest. Karstens will start on the road trip. What does that mean for the rotation then? Kevin Correia and Brad Lincoln have not been great options this year, but they aren’t the automatic losses they are made [...]
