How close is Brad Lincoln to being ML ready? End of the year? Who is he better than in the Pirates rotation right now?

He's getting there..I still thinks he needs work on his change-up. The fastball and curve are both top shelf quality pitches, but he needs a third pitch. Right now his change is average. If he can get that pitch working better, he will wind up being a number two or three type starter. If his change becomes a plus pitch, he becomes a full blown ace.

He isn't on the 40-man roster as of now. That needs to change in order for him to be put in the show. Thankfully, the Bucs aren't rushing him because he would get hit around if he were up right now.
