A.J. Burnett To Start Tuesday, Brad Lincoln's Return To Rotation Pushed Back To Wednesday

Root Sports Pittsburgh is reporting that the Pirates will make a slight change in their starting rotation heading into Tuesday's series opener against the Cincinnati Reds.

A.J. Burnett will move up from Wednesday to Tuesday to face off against Homer Bailey. Brad Lincoln, who is returning to the rotation because of Charlie Morton's injury will move back to Wednesday. The reason is believed to be that the move was made to give Lincoln an extra day of rest to adjust to his new role.
