There's an article on SI.com from Tom Verducci about some of the up and coming young pitchers in MLB. In the article, it mentions that the Pirates passed on several of these pitchers (currently in the Bigs) in the 2006 draft and chose Brad Lincoln.....then allowed him to pitch his way to Tommy John surgery. Another wonderful legacy from our previous Bucco mangement team. Sorry I can't put the link up.....really don't know how, Bertie!!

University of Houston pitched Lincoln to arm surgery. He barely threw at all for the Buccos minor league teams.

Did people see in DK's chat transcript that Lincoln isn't expected to be pitching again until AUGUST???? That means that basically next year will be his recovery year (as far as recovering his stuff) and presumably the earliest he cracks Pittsburgh is mid-season 2010!!

And that assumes that he'll actually be good enough to play in the majors. He may very well go the way of Mr. Bullington.

Thanks! I was actually in a semi-good mood. But there's Econo, ready to piss in my coffee.... :lol:

Did he have a setback or further surgery? I recall that he had the surgery more than 1 year ago. Typically, those who undergo TJ surgery miss one year but are back to competitive throwing within 12 months after the surgery and are throwing without limitation within 18 months of surgery.

What gives with Lincoln?

Very sad about surgical progress

Hmmm.

By The Tribune-Review
Wednesday, April 4, 2007

Right-hander Brad Lincoln, the Pirates' first-round draft pick last year, had "Tommy John" surgery Tuesday and will be out of action for the next 10 to 12 months. Lincoln first felt pain in his elbow after pitching in instructional league last year. He was shut down at the start of spring training after the pain resurfaced when he threw off a mound. He was examined Monday by Dr. James Andrews, who conducted the reconstructive surgery.

10-12 has become 16.
