Jeff Karstens to 15-Day DL; Brad Lincoln Recalled

33

The Pirates announced that Jeff Karstens has been placed on the 15-day DL with right shoulder inflammation. No surprise, after having to come out of his start last night after one inning. I thought the Pirates might just reinstate A.J. Burnett rather than have him make another start in AAA. He hasn't pitched well in his rehab starts, but he is now healthy. Instead they are turning to Lincoln, who Hurdle has announced will make the start next Tuesday against Colorado. He should also be available out of the bullpen today. Lincoln has been very good in his two starts in Indy: 12IP, 10H, 3ER, 0BB, 9K. Hopefully he can carry it over the major league level.
