Mike Lincoln may be put out of our misery soon. He has cleared waivers, and (as noted in the game thread) this appears to be a clear precursor to the Reds designating him for assignment.

I expect he’ll be in Louisville soon. No way Lincoln will decline the demotion and become a free agent.

UPDATE: I put this above, but it’s really more appropriate here, I guess. Mike Lincoln has been placed on the disabled list with a bulging ERA. Josh Roenicke has been recalled. Welcome, Josh!
