Hurdle said Karstens will start Monday. Lincoln to Pen. -DP— ROOT SPORTS™ | PIT (@ROOTSPORTSPIT) June 24, 2012
Color me surprised, but I'm not sure this isn't the best move. Lincoln was very good yesterday but he has been electric out of the bullpen. Kevin Correia's lives continue. Two roster moves still have to be made. It certainly brings up the possibility that the Pirates want to take a month and evaluate Lincoln in the pen to determine if they would move Grilli or Hanrahan at the deadline.
