MLB | Tim Lincecum eyes starting

Tue, 03 May 2016 08:23:19 -0700

Free-agent SP Tim Lincecum (Giants), who will throw in a showcase Friday, May 6, still wants to be a starter. The San Francisco Giants, Los Angeles Dodgers, Oakland Athletics, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, Washington Nationals, Baltimore Orioles and Miami Marlins are expected to be among the many teams attending the showcase. The Giants are interested in him as a reliever.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum could be worth stashing in NL-only leagues. He has still shown the ability to strike hitters out, but his command has been an issue for years. He's a watch list player in mixed leagues.

Angels | Halos to attend Tim Lincecum showcase

Mon, 02 May 2016 23:24:46 -0700

Free-agent SP Tim Lincecum (Giants) will throw in front of scouts Friday, May 6, in Arizona, and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim will be one of the teams in attendance.

Fantasy Tip: It would be interesting to see if Lincecum can re-gain his form. A move to the American League might help to keep batters off balance since they're not as familiar with his stuff as NL teams. Stay tuned.

MLB | Tim Lincecum to throw Friday

Mon, 02 May 2016 09:34:02 -0700

Free-agent SP Tim Lincecum (hip) will put on a showcase for interested teams Friday, May 6. Dozens of scouts are expected to be in attendance, including the San Francisco Giants. The San Diego Padres and Baltimore Orioles are also expected to watch. Lincecum had surgery on his last September and didn't pitch after June 27 in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum is a former shell of his Cy Young self after injuries have derailed his career. His velocity was noticeably down last year before his injury, and he relies more on control and deception now. There's no guarantee that he'll even sign with a team or be effective, so stay tuned. If he signs with a club and earns a roster spot, it could only be as a reliever, which would leave him little fantasy value.

MLB | Tim Lincecum showcase coming soon

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 10:27:51 -0700

Free-agent SP Tim Lincecum (Giants) was spotted throwing at the San Francisco Giants' Arizona complex, and he's expected to have a showcase for teams soon.

Fantasy Tip: What does Lincecum have left in the tank? It's hard to say, but the Freak's skills and velocity have tumbled the last several years mainly due to various injuries. He could become a spot starter in the deepest of leagues if he lands in the right situation and stays healthy. Stay tuned.

MLB | Tim Lincecum rehab update

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 18:30:42 -0700

Free-agent SP Tim Lincecum (Giants) is said to be throwing at 90 mph on flat ground. The 31-year-old right-hander is expected to hold a showcase for interested teams when he feels that he is completely healthy.

Fantasy Tip: More than 20 MLB teams have expressed interest in Lincecum, whose 2015 season ended prematurely following left hip surgery. He should go undrafted in most fantasy leagues but is worth monitoring to see if he latches on with a club in a starting role.

Marlins | Miami unlikely to add Tim Lincecum

Fri, 18 Mar 2016 17:13:13 -0700

The Miami Marlins are unlikely to sign free-agent SP Tim Lincecum (Giants) because they believe his asking price will be too high, according to a club source.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum reportedly received interest from more than 20 MLB teams during the offseason, with several clubs considering him as a reliever. The 31-year-old righty is returning from hip surgery and should not be viewed as anything more than a late-round flier in single-universe and cavernous mixed leagues if he signs with a team that plans to use him as a starter.

Athletics | Oakland interested in Tim Lincecum?

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 19:31:48 -0800

The Oakland Athletics are among more than 20 MLB teams to have requested the medical files of free-agent SP Tim Lincecum (Giants).

Fantasy Tip: The Baltimore Orioles, Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Royals, Miami Marlins, San Diego Padres are San Francisco Giants are among the other teams that have been connected to Lincecum this offseason. The 31-year-old right-hander is coming off hip surgery and there is no guarantee that he will be used as a starter regardless of where he lands. If he winds up with a team where he has a serious chance to win a rotation spot, he could be worth a late-round flier in single-universe or deep mixed leagues.

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 19:20:39 -0800

He has been working out in Arizona in preparation for the event and several Royals scouts were escorted away when they found the secret location where he was training.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum should be viewed as nothing more than a late-round flier in single-universe or cavernous mixed fantasy leagues at this point in his career.

Padres | SD interested in Tim Lincecum?

Mon, 07 Mar 2016 09:37:01 -0800

The San Diego Padres are "very active" with free-agent SP Tim Lincecum (Giants), according to his agent, Rick Thurman.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum is in steep decline due to injuries the last several seasons. Declining velocity is the main concern here. Even if he signs with the Padres, he's not guaranteed a starting spot. Cheap NL-only reserve if he lands with the Friars and earns a starting gig.

Tigers | Detroit looking at Tim Lincecum

Sat, 27 Feb 2016 23:45:30 -0800

The Detroit Tigers plan to have scouts on hand when free-agent SP Tim Lincecum (Giants) has his throwing session.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum appears to be very much in demand, although his injury status in recent years will likely relegate him to SP4 or SP5 status. Still, he could rebound given a strong session for scouts.
