Progress by Lincoln, Moskos


MILWAUKEE — Brad Lincoln and Daniel Moskos combined to pitch eight strong innings Thursday for Class A Lynchburg. Lincoln started and allowed one run on three hits and struck out seven in six innings. Moskos gave up two hits and whiffed three in two innings.

Lincoln, the first-round draft pick in 2006, continues to rebound well from Tommy John surgery, which he had in April 2007.

“He’s healthy, the stuff continues to come back, and he’s making strides in attacking hitters,” farm director Kyle Stark said.

Moskos, the fourth overall pick in 2008, began the year as a starter, but struggled and was moved back into the bullpen. Moskos’ fastball has lost some velocity, but Stark refuted reports Moskos is overweight and out of shape.

“Moskos is grinding through his first full season,” Stark said. “He’s down 4 pounds from the start of the season (so no truth to those pudgy rumors). His velocity has been pretty consistent for about a month and a half now, and has been impacted some by his first full season. He is working on being more athletic in his delivery.”
