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. Sep 1 - 9:23 PM

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.

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.
Jul 6 - 8:23 PM

Giants placed RHP Tim Lincecum on the 15-day disabled list with a right forearm contusion.

Lincecum suffered a bad bruise Saturday in his start against the Rockies. He may be moved to the bullpen once he's back to 100 percent health. Matt Cain (elbow) is taking over the vacant rotation spot.
Jul 2 - 8:41 AM

Tim Lincecum (forearm) will be placed on the disabled list Thursday.

Lincecum suffered a right forearm contusion in his start Saturday against the Rockies. It's not a serious injury, but the Giants need a spot for Matt Cain anyway.
Jun 30 - 5:41 PM

Tim Lincecum suffered a right forearm contusion Saturday against the Rockies.

Lincecum was having a pretty rough day even before the injury, surrendering three runs on just 41 pitches. Putting Lincecum on the disabled list would save him the embarrassment of being sent to the bullpen, which is sure to happen once Matt Cain (elbow) and Jake Peavy (back) finish their rehab assignments.
Jun 27 - 5:52 PM

Tim Lincecum left Saturday's game against the Rockies after taking a line drive off his right arm.

D.J. LeMahieu drilled him right above his pitching elbow. Lincecum allowed four hits, three runs and two walks over 1 2/3 innings before exiting. Yusmeiro Petit entered the game in his place. With Matt Cain (elbow) and Jake Peavy (back) slated to rejoin the rotation next week, this may have been Lincecum's last start for a while.
Jun 27 - 4:51 PM

Tim Lincecum might be moved to the bullpen when Jake Peavy (back) and Matt Cain (elbow) rejoin the rotation next week.

Lincecum got off to a fine start this season but has hit a wall of late, putting up a 7.00 ERA over his last six starts. The Giants currently have Peavy and Cain lined up to replace Lincecum and Tim Hudson (ankle), who could be placed on the disabled list. Lincecum has thrived when used as a reliever in the postseason and that might be the best role for him at this point.
Jun 24 - 10:17 AM

Tim Lincecum was knocked around in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers, surrendering five runs on seven hits and a walk in just 1 1/3 innings of work.

On the positive side, half of the four outs that he recorded came via the strikeout. It probably wasn't the best time for Lincecum to turn in an absolute clunker, as Jake Peavy and Matt Cain will return to the rotation soon and the Giants are tasked with tough decisions regarding the rotation. He'll look to get back on track on Saturday when he does battle against the Rockies.
