Not just the best shape. The best possible shape. That’s serious business:
At the end of the season, Lincoln talked about plans to get a personal trainer during the offseason. The focus, Lincoln explained, would be more on his legs and core than in years past.
“I am going to get my body in the best shape possible to come into spring strong so that I can go all year without breaking down,” Lincoln said. “I want to come in top physical form.”
Lincoln’s rookie season didn’t go as planned. After a June callup, he posted an unholy 6.66 ERA in 11 appearances. Here’s hoping the best possible shape — top physical form — makes all the difference.
