Lincoln Out for Season

New, 3 comments

Yuck. This isn't completely surprising, but it's still horrible news:

Brad Lincoln, the Pirates' top pitching prospect, had reconstructive elbow surgery today and will miss the entire 2007 season.

Lincoln, the team's first-round draft choice last season, had ligament damage repaired by Dr. James Andrews, the noted orthopedic surgeon in Birmingham, Ala.

I'm not sure why we're only now finding out about this, since I'm sure the surgery had probably been planned for a while.
