Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Orioles are "one of several teams" expressing interest in Tim Lincecum.
Lincecum, who is making his way back from hip surgery, was reportedly set to begin throwing off a mound last week and is expected to hold a showcase for interested clubs soon. Encina isn't sure what the Orioles' level of interest is at this point, although that could become clearer after the showcase. Lincecum posted a 4.13 ERA over 15 starts last season before being shut down with his hip issue. Feb 5 - 9:14 AM

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News expects the Rangers to pursue cheaper options like Tim Lincecum and Gavin Floyd instead of more expensive free agents like Yovani Gallardo and Dexter Fowler.

GM Jon Daniels recently said "We are in the range of where we'll end up payroll-wise," which suggests the Rangers are through making big moves. The Rangers will be present for Lincecum's showcase later this month and it's possible they could sign him to a minor league deal and try him on for size in spring training. Grant conceded Texas could still make a play for Gallardo if his price drops low enough.

Andrew Baggarly of the Mercury News doesn't expect the Giants to re-sign Tim Lincecum.

Re-signing Lincecum wouldn't make much sense as the Giants already have a full rotation. Lincecum will throw for teams at a showcase next month. He's five months removed from hip surgery. The Marlins and Padres have both shown interest in Lincecum, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

Giants GM Bobby Evans acknowledged Monday that he has maintained contact with free agent Tim Lincecum.

"Timmy has been such a big part of our fabric and success," Evans told the San Francisco Chronicle. "It’s important we do our due diligence. Of course we’re going to keep in touch with Tim Lincecum." The former back-to-back Cy Young Award winner is planning to hold a showcase for interested teams next month in Arizona. He owns a rough 4.68 ERA (75 ERA+) over the last four seasons and underwent major hip surgery in September.
Jan 25 - 12:32 PM

MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports that Tim Lincecum plans to hold a showcase for teams during the first half of February.

Lincecum is making his way back from surgery last September to repair a torn labrum and impingement in his left hip. How he looks in the showcase could go a long way in determining his market, but he might have to settle for a one-year, incentive-laden contract regardless.
Jan 22 - 9:41 AM

Tim Lincecum (hip) plans to hold a showcase for interested teams in late January or early February in the Scottsdale-Tempe area.

Lincecum required surgery last September to repair a torn labrum in his left hip and also had a hip impingement addressed. The 31-year-old is four years removed from ace-form and posted a 4.13 ERA over 15 starts last season while averaging just 7.1 K/9 and 4.5 BB/9, but he should still attract plenty of teams to his showcase. He might have to accept an incentive-laden deal at this point.
Jan 6 - 3:39 PM

Tim Lincecum (hip) plans to hold a showcase for interested teams in January.

Lincecum underwent surgery in September to repair a torn labrum in his hip and fix an impingement. His rehab process is ahead of schedule and he could receive clearance to begin throwing when he visits his surgeon for a follow-up in December. The hope is that he might be able to regain some velocity now that his hip pain is gone. The 31-year-old was limited to just 15 starts this past season and owns a 4.68 ERA (75 ERA+) over the past four seasons.

Tim Lincecum (hip) is expected to begin a throwing program in 4-6 weeks.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says that Lincecum is "said to be well ahead of schedule" following hip surgery. The Giants are interested in bringing the two-time Cy Young winner back, although it might be on a minor league contract. Lincecum was limited to just 15 starts this season because of injury.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that "there's a strong chance" the Giants will re-sign impending free agent Tim Lincecum.

The San Francisco Chronicle has reported previously that the club could retain the right-hander on a minor league contract. The Giants' two-year, $35 million investment in Lincecum has proven to be a poor one, but if they can bring him back on a minor league deal it might be worth a shot. Lincecum underwent season-ending surgery last week on his hip but is expected to be ready to go for spring training.

Giants transferred RHP Tim Lincecum from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Lincecum underwent season-ending surgery last week on his hip. He'll enter free agency having registered a 4.68 ERA over his last four seasons with San Francisco.

Tim Lincecum underwent season-ending surgery early Thursday morning on his hip.

His recovery timetable is unclear at this point. Lincecum will enter free agency after making zero starts in the second half of the 2015 season, and with a 4.68 ERA over his last four years with San Francisco. The two-time Cy Young Award winner will almost certainly have to settle for a one-year, incentive-laden contract on the open market this winter.

Giants GM Bobby Evans confirmed Thursday that Tim Lincecum (hip) is done for the season.

And it's likely that the impending free agent right-hander will need surgery for his degenerative hip condition. "He won't be able to come back this season. That's evident," Evans said Thursday morning. Lincecum, a two-time Cy Young Award winner with San Francisco, hasn't appeared in a game since June 27. He made only 15 starts this season.
Thu, Sep 3, 2015 12:21:00 PM

CBS Sport' Jon Heyman reports that Tim Lincecum will visit hip specialist Dr. Marc Philippon on Wednesday and a determination will be made whether he needs surgery.

Lincecum has already seen multiple doctors and has been diagnosed with a degenerative hip condition in both hips. Heyman says the righty "hasn't been experiencing severe pain," but he "has been hampered by an instability" in his hips. Lincecum has reportedly been told by doctors that he could be ready for spring training if he has the procedure and "they've further suggested that he should be able to return to form," according to Heyman. The righty will be a free agent this winter.

Tim Lincecum (hips) recently had a setback while rehabbing at the Giants' spring training complex.

Lincecum was diagnosed with a degenerative hip condition in mid-July but will now send his MRIs to another specialist. According to Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News, the right-hander is "exploring all treatment options." His status for the remainder of the season is up in the air.
Sun, Aug 30, 2015 02:27:00 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tim Lincecum (hips) will be ready to return by September 1.

Lincecum or Tim Hudson could even supplant Matt Cain in the rotation, Bochy hinted. Lincecum has been out since the end of June, first with a forearm contusion and later with degenerative hips. Even if he does return to the rotation, there is little left in the fantasy tank for Lincecum.
