Phillies acquired RHP Brad Lincoln from the Blue Jays for C Erik Kratz and LHP Rob Rasmussen.

Lincoln was a big disappointment after landing with the Jays at the 2012 trade deadline, posting a 4.77 ERA and 1.48 WHIP over 46 appearances. He flashed promise in his days with the Pirates, though, and the Phillies are hoping he'll regain that form. He'll work in middle relief.

Blue Jays optioned RHP Brad Lincoln to Triple-A Buffalo.

Lincoln has struggled in the Blue Jays bullpen this season, including allowing a pair of runs on four hits in just 1 1/3 innings on Friday. He'll head down to the minor leagues for a week or so, but will almost assuredly return when rosters expand in September.

Blue Jays optioned RHP Brad Lincoln to Triple-A Buffalo.

Blue Jays recalled RHP Brad Lincoln from Triple-A Buffalo.

Lincoln has posted an uninspiring 4.50 ERA across eight innings of relief this season at the Triple-A level. The righty will operate as a mop-up man for the Jays.

Blue Jays optioned RHP Brad Lincoln to Triple-A Buffalo.

Lincoln was on track to claim a spot in the Blue Jays' Opening Day bullpen, but he came down with some shoulder inflammation this weekend and probably won't be ready for the start of the season. The right-hander should see time in the majors at some point this year.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said that Brad Lincoln is back in the picture for a possible bullpen spot.

The Jays originally intended to put Lincoln in the Triple-A rotation, but it sounds like they've determined he can help them now as a reliever. Lincoln struggled out of the bullpen for the Jays last year after coming over from the Pirates, but he still has some upside in relief.

Brad Lincoln was tagged for four runs in two-thirds of an inning by the Astros in his start Wednesday.

Lincoln took a big step forward after being shifted to the pen by the Pirates last year, but the Jays have decided to take another look at him as a starter this spring. That means he's probably Triple-A bound; there's simply no room for him in the rotation and the last couple of bullpen spots on the Jays could go to guys out of options.

The Blue Jays will stretch out Brad Lincoln during spring training.

It's mostly just as insurance in case they have a couple injuries, as he'd be in line to serve as the "seventh starter." Lincoln struggled out of the bullpen for the Jays after coming over from the Pirates, but he still has some upside as a reliever.

Blue Jays acquired RHP Brad Lincoln from Pirates for OF Travis Snider.

Lincoln really found his niche in the bullpen this season, posting a solid 2.73 ERA and 60/14 K/BB ratio over 59 1/3 innings. There was some thought that the Blue Jays would give the 27-year-old another chance as a starter, but they intend to keep him in a set-up role.

Brad Lincoln is unavailable this weekend.

He was taxed for three innings Friday, and will be given a few days of scheduled rest. Lincoln struggled mightily as a starter earlier this month, but remains an effective middle reliever. The Pirates are going with Jeff Karstens as their current fifth starter.

Brad Lincoln limited the Tigers to two hits over six innings Saturday in a 4-1 Pirates victory.

Lincoln was excellent, punching out seven Detroit hitters while issuing just one walk. The right-hander has struggled mightily this month but may have just bought himself another turn through the Pittsburgh rotation.
