Description: Pirates righty Brad Lincoln held Detroit to one runs on two hits with one walk and seven strikeouts in six innings Saturday to improve to 4-2 with a 3.50 ERA.
Insight: In Lincoln's first three starts after moving into the rotation, he's went 0-2 with a 10.03 ERA and a 2.31 WHIP in 11 2/3 innings. He'll lose his spot once Jeff Karstens returns, so don't bother adding him despite any limited potential he might possess.

Description: Pirates righty Brad Lincoln allowed four runs on eight hits in 3 1/3 innings Sunday at Cleveland. Lincoln walked one and struck out two.
Insight: Since Lincoln moved into the rotation, he's gone 0-2 with a 10.03 ERA and a 2.31 WHIP in 11 2/3 innings over three starts. He'll lose his spot once Jeff Karstens returns, so stay away from him in fantasy leagues even if he shows some improvement.

Description: Pirates righty Brad Lincoln allowed five runs on six hits in four innings in a spot start against the Reds Wednesday.
Insight: Once Jeff Karstens returns Lincoln will move back to the bullpen, so don't bother with him in fantasy leagues.

Description: Pirates righty Brad Lincoln will start Tuesday against the Reds.
Insight: Pittsburgh placed Charlie Morton on the disabled list on Friday, and with Jeff Karstens still on the DL with shoulder inflammation, Lincoln will make a start or two. The 6-foot-4 27-year-old has been excellent out of the bullpen this season, allowing just one run in 19 1/3 innings in relief. In his lone start this year, Lincoln allowed two runs on four hits in six innings against the Marlins.
