Tim Lincecum struck out seven and yielded five runs on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.
Lincecum surrendered a three-run homer to Carlos Correa in the first inning, but mostly settled in after that bomb. After striking out just two in each of his first two starts, Lincecum's seven strikeouts on Tuesday stand as his season-high. His off-speed stuff, in particular, looked sharp. The veteran right-hander also walked four and exited the proceedings having thrown 101 pitches (55 strikes). After limiting the A's to one run over six innings in his mid-June season-debut, Lincecum has surrendered nine runs in his last two outings (7 1/3 innings). He will look to keep the fireworks to a minimum in a July 4 road date with the Rays next time he toes the rubber. Jun 29 - 1:38 AM

Tim Lincecum failed to provide much length in Thursday's loss to the A's, surrendering four runs on seven hits over three innings.

Lincecum managed six innings of one-run ball in his first start with the Halos, but start No. 2 proved less successful. Three of the four runs on his line scored when the veteran right-hander coughed up a three-run homer to Marcus Semien in the second inning. Lincecum managed just two strikeouts on the evening. Once The Freak puts in a few more starts, the shape of his season will start to become more clear. As is, he offers little fantasy appeal to those outside of very deep AL-only formats. And even then, don't expect miracles. Lincecum will continue to work back into the flow of the season in a home start against the Astros next time out.

Tim Lincecum held the Athletics to one run on four hits over six innings in his Angels debut, picking up the win in the 7-1 victory Saturday.

Lincecum struck out just two but was in command for most of the afternoon. Things threatened to get away from him in the third inning after he allowed a run and loaded the bases with two outs, but he escaped the jam and didn't find much more trouble in his six innings of work. Lincecum touched 90 mph with his fastball and while he's not the pitcher he once was, he could still be serviceable for an Angels team in desperate need of serviceable arms. Lincecum's next start will come against these same Athletics on Thursday.

Angels recalled RHP Tim Lincecum from Triple-A Salt Lake.

He'll make his highly-anticipated Angels debut on Saturday against the Athletics. The 32-year-old hurler registered a 2.65 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 19/6 K/BB ratio over 17 innings in three starts at Triple-A. He's worth monitoring in mixed leagues, but don't expect him to return to vintage form in Los Angeles.
Jun 18 - 1:23 PM

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said Monday that Tim Lincecum will join the team's rotation this weekend against the Athletics.

The expectation is that he'll pitch on Saturday. Lincecum was fantastic in his most recent tuneup start on Sunday with Triple-A Salt Lake, allowing just one hit and one walk over seven scoreless innings. Those in mixed fantasy leagues can afford to wait and see, but he should be owned in AL-only formats.
Jun 13 - 7:21 PM

Tim Lincecum dominated in his start at Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday, allowing just one hit and a walk over seven scoreless innings.

Lincecum racked up eight strikeouts on the night and didn't allow a hit until the sixth inning. He's expected to join the Angels rotation during the coming week and make his debut against the Athletics over the weekend. While he was a shell of his former self in his final few years in San Francisco, he's probably worth a look in AL-only formats and in deeper mixed leagues on the off chance he recaptures some of the magic.
Jun 12 - 10:03 PM

Tim Lincecum said he'll make one start for Triple-A Salt Lake before possibly debuting with the Angels.

Lincecum has allowed five runs on six hits and five walks over 10 innings so far with the Triple-A Salt Lake Bees. Anaheim is desperate for rotation help, but the 31-year-old right-hander clearly isn't quite ready. If he gets through his next Triple-A outing with better results, he'll be lined up to debut next weekend in Oakland.
Jun 7 - 6:07 PM

Tim Lincecum allowed two earned runs over five innings Tuesday with Triple-A Salt Lake.

Lincecum struck out six but walked two, needing 95 pitches to get through five innings. He allowed three earned runs over five innings (88 pitches) in his first start with Triple-A Salt Lake last week. Despite the so-so results, the Angels are still planning to debut the 31-year-old right-ahnder June 12 (this Sunday) against the Indians.
Jun 7 - 4:27 PM

Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports that Tim Lincecum is expected to make his debut with the Angels on June 12.

Lincecum threw approximately 75 pitches in an extended spring training game on Saturday and his next appearance will be with Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday. He'll make one additional start for Salt Lake on June 7 before joining the Halos' rotation. "Everything felt pretty good," Lincecum said of his appearance in extended spring. "What I asked for and what the Angels are giving me is just time to move along at my own pace and figure out things that I need to."
May 29 - 10:40 AM

Tim Lincecum threw a simulated game on Monday.

Lincecum will throw one more before getting into game action with Triple-A Salt Lake. He's expected to make at least two starts in the minors before joining the Angels, which puts him on track for around mid-June.
May 23 - 6:02 PM

Tim Lincecum is expected to join Triple-A Salt Lake's rotation around the end of May.

Linececum is still throwing at extended spring training for now. He'll make at least two starts for Salt Lake before joining the Angels' rotation, putting him in line to return to the majors in mid-June if all goes well.
May 22 - 2:14 PM

Angels general manager Billy Eppler said Friday that he expects Tim Lincecum to need 20-30 days in the minors before joining the major league rotation.

That puts him in line to make his Angels' debut around the middle of June. Lincecum's one-year contract with the Angels became official on Friday, and Eppler says the veteran right-hander has "earned" the right to tell the club when he's ready to start a major league game.
May 20 - 5:10 PM

Angels signed RHP Tim Lincecum to a one-year, $2.5 million contract; optioned him to Triple-A Salt Lake.

The deal was completed after Lincecum passed his physical on Thursday. His salary is prorated, so his actual earnings will be closer to $2 million. The contract also comes with $1.7 million in incentives. Lincecum is well past his prime but the Angels are desperate for pitching with Garrett Richards (elbow), Andrew Heaney (elbow) and C.J. Wilson (shoulder) all battling injuries. The two-time Cy Young winner will likely build up his pitch count in the minor leagues before joining the Angels' rotation.
May 19 - 8:40 PM

Tim Lincecum is taking his physical with the Angels on Thursday in Anaheim.

If he passes, his major league contract with the Halos will become official. Lincecum agreed to the framework of a deal on Monday afternoon and could join the Angels' rotation sometime next month if everything goes smoothly from here. He is coming off major hip surgery, so this physical isn't necessarily a sure thing. Lincecum, 31, posted a 4.13 ERA and 60/38 K/BB ratio in 76 1/3 innings last season for the Giants.
May 19 - 4:00 PM

MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports that Tim Lincecum is nearing agreement on a contract with the Angels.

Lincecum was also reportedly drawing interest from the Giants and White Sox, but per Heyman, the two-time NL Cy Young winner could have a contract inked with the Angels by the end of Monday. Lincecum, 31, held a 4.13 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 60/38 K/BB ratio across 76 1/3 innings with the Giants last season. He has not posted an ERA under 4.00 since 2011 and offers more name value than actual fantasy value.
