San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum, who typically doesn't throw off a mound at all in the offseason, decided that change that up this winter. "I just felt like more throwing would be the best thing I could do for myself, not necessarily throwing hard, but getting good mechanics and the feel of that ball coming out of my hand from an earlier part of the offseason," Lincecum said. Manager Bruce Bochy said Lincecum looked free and easy Monday, Feb. 17, and he threw all his pitches.

San Francisco Giants impending free-agent SP Tim Lincecum plans to test the free-agent market this offseason, according to sources. The Giants have approached Lincecum with a two-year offer, but talks haven't progressed. If nothing else happens before the end of the World Series, the team expects to offer him a one-year qualifying offer for roughly $14 million. The Seattle Mariners are one team that could be interested in his services, and they had a scout watching him during the team's final homestand.

The San Francisco Giants are listening to offers for OF Hunter Pence, SP Tim Lincecum and RP Javier Lopez, but the price is believed to be "very strong" for Pence and Lincecum. The Giants plan on making qualifying offers to both Pence and Lincecum once the season is over, which would bring them draft choices if they don't take the offer and sign with another team. The high asking price is likely to keep Lincecum around more so than Pence, since he'll still be coveted.

San Francisco Giants general manager Brian Sabean said on KNBR-AM radio that he's unlikely to trade SP Tim Lincecum. "I find it hard to believe we'll see Timmy in another uniform this year."
Fantasy Tip: CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman reported earlier that some teams had interest in him, but it just seemed too improbable that the Giants would be ready to part with the impending free agent yet.

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum has a limited no-trade list in his contract that doesn't include the Detroit Tigers or Boston Red Sox. Several baseball executives see a trade of Lincecum and a switch of his role to a relief one as a long shot, however. He's a free agent after this season, so it's doubtful that he's open to changing roles just a few months before he hits the market.
Fantasy Tip: As previously mentioned and Heyman states, the Giants have given no indication that they're sellers yet, either. This is kind of a non-story. Fantasy owners should simply be a little concerned with how the Giants handle Lincecum following his no-hitter, which required 148 pitches. He may be a good sell-high candidate for fantasy purposes for that reason.
