Oilers sign southpaw for 2002

The Oilers have added a left-handed pitcher to the 2002 roster with the signing of Stetson Universitys Roger Lincoln.

Lincoln, who is from Northford, Conn., is a pre-med student. The junior had a 6-0 record with one save and an earned run average of 2.06 as both a starter and a reliever for the NCAA Division I Hatters last season.

Dave Magadan (Oilers 1982) batted .250 for the San Diego Padres. The 2001 season was Magadans 16th in the major leagues and he has a .288 career batting average.

Dave Matranga (Oilers 1996) hit a combined .290 with 11 home runs and 90 runs batted in while splitting time with the Houston Astros Triple A affiliate New Orleans Zephyrs and the Double A Round Rock Express.

Scott Seal (Oilers 1996) split time with the Colorado Rockies Double A affiliate Carolina Mudcats and Single A Salem Avalanche.

Damon Katz (Oilers 1999) split time with the Cleveland Indians Single A affiliates Kinston Indians and Columbus Redstixx. Katz was used primarily as a shortstop although he did make one appearance as a pitcher, notching a save.
