Lincoln continues to show good actions on the diamond as a L/L OF/LHP. Offensively, he hit with quiet actions and a compact swing, to generate plus bat speed with barrel accuracy. He repeated his swing and hit gap-to-gap with his approach. In the OF, he worked good angles to and through the ball, and threw with a clean arm stroke on-line to his targets. On the hill, he threw his fastball from 79-81, spun a CB from 62-65, and showed early feel for a CH at 67-68. Mechanically he was able to repeat, kept his eyes on the target and stayed in-line to throw. With minor tweaks, his CB proved to be a potential out pitch as the consistency improves. Overall - Lincoln is a physically mature prospect that will graduate this spring and will look to prove himself at the next level.
