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.
