Toronto Blue Jays Recall Pitcher Brad Lincoln

MLB News: The Toronto Blue Jays recalled right handed pitcher Brad Lincoln from Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday. He will serve as middle relief and mop-up man. Fantasy Ramifications: When you have the words mop-up tied to your name in the major leagues, it isn’t a term of endearment. Lincoln holds no fantasy baseball value.

Brad Lincoln – Yankee Hunter

By now you’ve read that the Pirates are allowing Brad Lincoln to explore the wonders of Yonge Street and Casa Loma in Toronto in exchange for giving Travis Snider the opportunity to eat at Primanti’s and gape in awe at Fallingwater. My snap reaction is that I would have loved this trade in 2010 for the Pirates.  Taking away the context, the Pirates traded a reliever for a young...

Pittsburgh Pirates: Lincoln the savior at Citizens’

Follow me on Twitter @jim_krug       (Opening image credit cbspittsburgh) If the Pittsburgh Pirates are to finish over .500 this season for the first time since 1992, fans may point to the 7th inning of last night’s 11-7 Pirates’ win over the Philadelphia Phillies as a turning point.  The situation was bleak.  Losers of 3 in a row, and on the verge of being swept by their...

Lincoln leads way to another win

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...

Brad Lincoln to start Monday vs Marlins

Kristy Robinson reported that Brad Lincoln will start in place of Erik Bedard (back spasms) on Monday in Miami. Bedard will have his start pushed back to Wednesday in Washington. Lincoln certainly deserves the shot over anyone else as he has been spectacular so far this season in a long relief role. In 14 1/3 innings, he has given up just one earned run, good for a 0.63 ERA. He...

Digging deeper into Brad Lincoln's 2011

In part one on Wednesday, I talked about how Brad Lincoln was able to get more groundballs in 2011, which went a long ways towards halving his home run rate and making him more effective than he was with the Pirates in 2010. In part two, let's tackle the deeper questions. What made Lincoln more effective last year and is it something that we can count on from him in 2012?First...
