It's really strange that Brad Lincoln was the fourth pick in the draft less than two years ago and now his return from injury is just a footnote. I say that not to pick on Post-Gazette writer Paul Meyer, believe it or not - it's amazing how little any of us even mention Lincoln. Given the amount of ink that's still wasted on complete busts like Bryan Bullington and John Van Benschoten, one would think that the return of a former first-round pick who isn't yet obviously a bust would warrant a little more excitement.
Anyway, Lincoln pitched against Red Sox minor leaguers yesterday. He threw only fastballs.
