Former #1 draft picks Jameson Taillon and Brad Lincoln were both in action last night. Here’s the Pirates Farm Report for Sunday night.
Yes the Pirates have lost 3 in a row and their hitting looks more like missing, but be realistic, they were not going to contend or even reach .500 this year. The goal is progress and that’s being made.
Indianapolis pitcher Brad Lincoln is making a strong case for a promotion to the Pirates. The former 1st round pick was on the mound last night to take on Scranton Wilkes/Barre.
2010 Pirates 1st round pick Jameson Taillon is looking like a player that won’t be pitching for Single A West Virginia for very long.
Jameson Taillon, the Pirates top pitching prospect, continues to show why he was a 1st round pick.
The Pittsburgh Pirates roughed up Josh Beckett in the fifth inning to beat the Boston Red Sox 9-4 on Sunday.
If the Pirates have any chance of being respectable in 2011, the starting rotation needs to perform above expectation. Through seven games this spring, the starters have done that. This afternoon, Charlie Morton and Brad Lincoln turned in strong outings as the Pirates beat Toronto, 4-1.
