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. Nov 24 - 8:55 AM

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.
Oct 19 - 6:04 PM

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.
Sep 7 - 11:40 AM

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.
Sep 3 - 12:51 PM

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.
Sep 3 - 12:21 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.
Aug 30 - 2:27 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.

Tim Lincecum (hips) could face hitters this week.

Lincecum, who was diagnosed with a degenerative hip condition in mid-July, is currently rehabbing at the team's complex in Arizona. He could be close to a minor league rehab assignment if all goes well this week, but he's likely looking at a bullpen role upon his return.
Aug 18 - 8:32 AM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said of Tim Lincecum (hips) Wednesday that "I can't say he's close."

Lincecum threw a bullpen session Tuesday, but he's apparently got a ways to go to be built back up. The righty was diagnosed with a degenerative condition in both of his hips back in mid-July and is looking at a bullpen role when he returns.

Tim Lincecum (hips) threw a bullpen session Tuesday.

Lincecum has been eased back into things after being diagnosed with a degenerative condition in both of his hips back in mid-July. There's no timetable for his return.
Aug 11 - 8:16 PM

Tim Lincecum (hips) played catch without any issue on Saturday.

He then went to receive treatment afterwards as he continues his recovery from a degenerative condition in both hips. If he rebounds nicely from this, he could be cleared to begin mound work early next week. There is still no clear timetable for his return to the Giants, and likely no rotation spot available once he does make it back.
Jul 25 - 2:59 PM

Tim Lincecum has been diagnosed with a degenerative condition in both of his hips.

This came out of nowhere, but it's apparently something he's dealt with since the end of last season. Lincecum was examined by a specialist in Tennessee and given cortisone injections in both hips. The good news is that he's expected to resume throwing in five days, as it doesn't appear this is a career-threatening injury. When Lincecum does return, there's a good chance he'll no longer have a spot in the rotation.
Jul 20 - 8:39 PM

Tim Lincecum (forearm) played catch on Monday.

It's the first time he's thrown since landing on the disabled list last week with a right forearm contusion. There's no timetable for Lincecum's return, and he seems likely to be moved to the bullpen once activated.
