Rotowire: Nov 18 / 6:39a ET
News: Lincoln has signed a minor league deal with the Pirates.
Impact: Presumably, he'll be invited to spring training with an opportunity to compete for a bullpen spot. Lincoln worked mostly as a starter at Triple-A Lehigh Valley (Phillies) in 2014, compiling a 5.11 ERA and 1.47 WHIP over 123.1 innings. His best stretch in the big leagues came out of the Bucs' bullpen in 2012, when he carried a 60:14 K:BB over 59.1 innings (2.73 ERA) before getting traded to Toronto.
Rotowire: Nov 4 / 4:34p ET
News: Lincoln has filed for free agency.
Impact: Lincoln opened last season in the Phillies' pen, but he didn't stick with the big club long. He spent the majority of the year at Triple-A Lehigh Valley where he went 6-11 with a 5.11 ERA and a 112:58 K:BB ratio in 123 innings. He'll have to settle for a minor league contract this winter.
