Tim Lincecum bounced back against the Dodgers on Tuesday, spinning five innings of one-run ball in a no-decision.
The right-hander whiffed five, walked none, and scattered five hits. Well, mostly scattered. Lincecum was one pitch away from escaping the second inning and ostensibly throwing five shutout frames, but a full-count offering to Juan Uribe ended up a souvenir to a lucky fan in the left field bleachers. Lincecum, who slashed his ERA from 9.90 to 7.20 this evening, leads the Giants into San Diego on Sunday. Apr 16 - 3:19 AM

Tim Lincecum was punted around in a loss to Arizona on Wednesday, allowing seven runs on seven hits over four innings.

Lincecum struck out five and allowed one walk and a pair of homers before hitting the showers early. The Snakes also saw Lincecum on Thursday (four runs on eight hits over six frames), and they had no problem squaring him up six days later. Lincecum will be ecstatic to get a new opponent, but that 9.90 ERA will require some time to sand down. He toes the rubber in San Francisco against the Dodgers on Tuesday.
Apr 10 - 1:15 AM

Tim Lincecum struck out seven but yielded four runs on eight hits over six frames in Thursday's 8-5 win over the Diamondbacks.

He didn't walk a batter, something he did on just one occasion all of last season. Lincecum exited the contest with the Giants down 4-2, but San Francisco rallied with six runs over the final three innings. The righty entered the afternoon game about 24 hours removed from a bout with food poisoning, so, all things considered, it wasn't a bad showing. He'll get the D'Backs again next week.
Apr 3 - 7:47 PM

Tim Lincecum (illness, knee) will make his scheduled start Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

Lincecum left his last exhibition start after taking a comebacker off the knee and has also dealt with food poisoning this week, but he'll give it a go. The right-hander struggled this spring and is a pretty borderline option in mixed leagues versus the D'Backs.
Apr 3 - 2:47 PM

Tim Lincecum could be scratched from Thursday's start against the Diamondbacks after coming down with a bout of food poisoning.

Giants pitching coach Dave Righetti revealed the news in a radio interview with KNBR 680 Wednesday, saying Lincecum was throwing up all night Tuesday. Given that he's also recovering from a bruised knee, the Giants seem likely to push the right-hander back. Ryan Vogelsong would move up to start in Lincecum's place.
Apr 2 - 2:08 PM

Tim Lincecum (knee) said Monday that he remains on track to make his season debut on Thursday.

Lincecum suffered a left knee contusion after being hit with a line drive in his final exhibition start. He says that the knee feels OK, but he'll do some running and throw his regular between-starts bullpen session before he's officially cleared. The righty is scheduled to square off against the Diamondbacks in his first outing.
Mar 31 - 6:31 PM

Tim Lincecum (knee) said he's on track to make his next scheduled start Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

"I’ve got to listen to them," Lincecum said of Giants trainers, "but right now I feel I should be fine." Giants manager Bruce Bochy echoed the sentiment, saying the team is "pretty comfortable he'll be OK to go." Lincecum took a line drive off the inside of his left knee Friday, but X-rays came back negative and he's simply looking at a contusion.
Mar 29 - 9:38 PM

Tim Lincecum suffered a left knee contusion after taking a line drive off the knee Friday, but X-rays came back negative.

The injury was serious enough that Lincecum had to be helped off the field, so it's still unclear whether the contusion will force the right-hander to miss a start. He wasn't particularly sharp prior to leaving, allowing a run on three hits and three walks in four innings of work. Assuming it was his last action of the spring, Lincecum finishes exhibition play with a 5.79 ERA.
Mar 28 - 11:51 PM

Tim Lincecum left Friday's start against the Athletics after taking a line drive off his left leg.

Lincecum was putting almost no weight on the leg as he was helped off the field, a bad sign for the Giants. The club should update his status shortly.
Mar 28 - 11:16 PM

Tim Lincecum had a rough day in Cactus League action against the Royals on Sunday, allowing seven runs on 11 hits over 4 2/3 innings.

Lincecum did manage to strike out seven while walking only one on the afternoon, but it was hardly any solace for the poor ratios. Most of the damage came in the five-run fifth inning, where Jason Donald and Carlos Peguero hit back-to-back homers. Lincecum still possesses terrific strikeout potential, but his declining velocity could be a red flag for fantasy owners.
Mar 23 - 11:38 PM

Tim Lincecum struggled against the Angels in Monday's start, allowing five runs in 5 1/3 innings.

Lincecum allowed seven hits and walked two without recording a strikeout. It's his first problematic outing of the spring, but it shouldn't be any cause for alarm.
Mar 17 - 6:03 PM

Tim Lincecum allowed two runs in 4 1/3 innings in Wednesday's start against the White Sox.

Lincecum was solid through four innings, but ran out of steam in the fifth. The right-hander surrendered a double and two singles before exiting with one out. Overall, he allowed four hits and walked one while striking out three. He has looked solid in Cactus League play through three starts, which could translate into his first productive season since 2011.
Mar 12 - 5:33 PM

Tim Lincecum delivered his second consecutive strong Cactus League start, delivering three scoreless innings in Friday's victory over the Royals.

The 29-year-old hurler allowed just two hits in the ballgame and didn't issue a walk. He's coming off a pair of highly disappointing seasons, but still has the ability to be a top-of-the-line fantasy starter. Even with his ratio concerns, Lincecum racked up at least 190 strikeouts in each of the last two years.
Mar 7 - 10:42 PM

Tim Lincecum tossed two scoreless innings in Monday's 7-2 loss to the Padres.

Lincecum is trying to return to his Cy Young ways after back-to-back ugly seasons. In his Cactus League debut, the right-hander allowed just one hit and one walk and recorded one strikeout as well. Lincecum will follow Matt Cain and Madison Bumgarner in the rotation.
Mar 3 - 6:17 PM

Tim Lincecum admitted Friday that he thought about signing for his hometown Mariners, before electing to re-sign with the Giants on a two-year, $35 million contract.

The 29-year-old right-hander did acknowledge that playing in Seattle is an opportunity that he'd like to explore, but later on in his career. He also claimed that he had unfinished business to take care of as a Giant, and didn't want to end his tenure after a disappointing season. With his high-end strikeout potential intact, he'll be a very popular option in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts next Spring.
