in Lincoln's last start he threw a complete game shutout where he only gave up two hits and walked two. he is 1-3 but with only a 2.31 ERA, he managed to get a loss in a start where he pitched 5 and didnt give up an earned run. He looks like he is getting closer to being ready but he is still far down on the call up list and probably wont see any MLB action until next year.
Alvarez is hitting .234 with 9 home runs and 35 RBIs, and 46 strike outs in 154 at bats. i can see him playing all year at Lynchburg and then next season start in Altoona and wait there for the call-up
