Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that the Mets don't plan to attend Tim Lincecum's showcase on Friday.

Finally, news of a team who won't be in attendance. More than a dozen teams reportedly will be, including the likes of the Angels, Mariners, Dodgers, Cubs, Padres, Giants, Athletics, Rangers, Astros, White Sox, Nationals, and Orioles. The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner is rehabbing from hip surgery and hopes to land a starting job somewhere.

Alden Gonzalez of reports that the Angels will attend Tim Lincecum's showcase on Friday in Arizona.

The Angels are expected to be one of around 20 teams in attendance. It's worth a shot to at least take a look, as the club could use the rotation depth. C.J. Wilson (shoulder), Tyler Skaggs (elbow, shoulder), and Andrew Heaney (forearm) are all on the disabled list while Matt Shoemaker was recently demoted after posting a 9.15 ERA over five starts.

Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports that Tim Lincecum will finally hold his long-awaited showcase for interested teams on Friday in Scottsdale, Arizona.

At least 20 teams have expressed interest in attending the showcase at one point or another to see what the two-time National League Cy Young award winner has left in the tank. The 31-year-old has reportedly been throwing in the 90-91 mph range. With so many teams starved for rotation help, he shouldn't have much difficulty landing a job.

MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports that Tim Lincecum could have a showcase for teams next week.

We've been waiting for said showcase for months now, but 20 teams are expected to be in attendance whenever it finally takes place. Heyman hears that Lincecum was "consistently" in the 90-91 mph range on Monday and is likely to throw again this weekend. The 31-year-old is coming off hip surgery and had a 4.13 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, and 60/38 K/BB ratio in 76 1/3 innings last season for the Giants. It's tough to have high expectations at this point.

According to MLB Network's Jon Heyman, free agent Tim Lincecum was recently spotted throwing at the Giants' spring training complex in Arizona.

They were probably just letting him use the facilities. Lincecum is nearing a full recovery from September hip surgery and preparing a showcase for teams. There's believed to be interest from 20 different clubs, with the Giants possibly entering the mix if he accepts a relief gig. Lincecum posted a 4.13 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, and 60/38 K/BB ratio across 76 1/3 innings last season before his hip began acting up. He had a 4.74 ERA in 2014.
Apr 20 - 1:33 PM

MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports that the Giants remain interested in Tim Lincecum as a reliever.

Lincecum still wants to start, although perhaps he'll consider making an exception if it meant returning to the Giants. Making his way back from hip surgery, Lincecum remains on a throwing program in Arizona and Heyman says the righty has had "no setbacks" and is in "no hurry" to sign.
Apr 8 - 1:37 PM

MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports that 20 teams are interested in seeing Tim Lincecum once he's ready to throw.

The big question is when that showcase will be. There's still no answer on that end. Lincecum, who is working his way back from hip surgery, is said to be throwing at 90 mph on flat ground and wants to be "perfect" before a possible showcase. The Padres are among the teams who have been linked to the former Cy Young Award winner, but it doesn't appear that he'll be a factor in the early part of the season at the very least.
Mar 30 - 3:30 PM

Athletics team president Billy Beane said Saturday that while they haven't discussed him internally, the A's would likely attend a showcase for Tim Lincecum.

Lincecum's representatives have continued to mention this supposed showcase, and the majority of big league teams are interested, but there is still no clear time, date or location for when this will take place. It's highly unlikely at this stage that Lincecum will begin the season on a big league roster.
Mar 19 - 3:49 PM

The Pirates have shown interest in Tim Lincecum (hip), according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

We're beginning to wonder which will come first—Dr. Dre's Detox album or Lincecum's mythical showcase. Assuming Lincecum does throw for teams at some point this month, the Pirates will join a host of interested parties including the Padres, Marlins, Orioles and even the Giants. Pittsburgh seems like an odd fit for Lincecum as the Pirates already have a full rotation with two talented prospects (Tyler Glasnow and Jameson Taillon) expected to debut later this year. Lincecum is now six months removed from hip surgery.
Mar 12 - 7:28 PM

Tim Lincecum (hip) won't hold his showcase for another week or two.

As many as 20 teams have asked for his medical records. Lincecum's showcase was supposed to happen last month but MLB Network's Jon Heyman said he delayed it because he's a "perfectionist." So far, the Padres and Marlins have shown the most interest.
Mar 9 - 2:26 PM

Tim Lincecum's agent said Monday that the Padres have been "very active" on the free agent right-hander.

Lincecum is planning to hold a showcase in the Phoenix area later this month for interested teams. "I don't know that he's got any affinity to any particular club," agent Rick Thurman told The Mighty 1090. "I haven't really discussed that with him. I know that he loves the West Coast. He's discussed the Padres with me. He's definitely got interest if they have interest in him. We'll just have to wait and see." Lincecum, 31, posted a 4.13 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, and 60/38 K/BB ratio in 76 1/3 innings last season for the Giants. He had a 4.74 ERA in 2014.
Mar 7 - 1:11 PM

According to Katie Strang of ESPN, the Tigers plan to be in attendance when Tim Lincecum holds his showcase for MLB clubs.

The club is exploring all avenues to explore pitching depth, especially in the rotation. The Padres, Marlins and Orioles are also known to have interest in the former two-time National League Cy Young Award winner, and at least 20 teams have requested his medical records. His fantasy value will be tied to where he lands and whether or not he's able to secure a rotation spot.
Feb 27 - 12:11 PM

Andrew Baggarly of San Jose Mercury News hears the Matt Cain injury isn't likely to change the Giants' interest in bringing back Tim Lincecum.

That is to say, very little interest. Cain had a cyst on his right arm removed, forcing him to forgo a throwing session Thursday and keeping him sidelined for the next 10 days. Lincecum should generate some interest, though, with as many as 20 teams reportedly having requesting medical information on the right-hander. Lincecum is expected to have a throwing session in the coming days, after which his market should pick up.
Feb 25 - 6:55 PM

Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Padres will be in attendance at Tim Lincecum's showcase in Arizona later this month.

It's no surprise, as they're reportedly one of the clubs that's most interested in the veteran right-hander. Lincecum’s agent, Rick Thurman, said Saturday that at least 20 teams have requested medical information on his client. The righty is coming back from surgery to repair a torn labrum and impingement in his left hip and has a 4.68 ERA over the last four seasons. However, there are apparently a multitude of clubs interested in Lincecum on what is likely to be an incentive-laden, one-year contract. In addition to the Padres, the Marlins and Orioles also reportedly have strong interest.
