San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (neck) was dealing with a sore neck in his spring outing Wednesday, March 11, and it affected his delivery.
Fantasy Tip: Lincecum has now posted three straight seasons with ERAs over 4.00, including 4.74 last season to go along with a 1.40 WHIP and 134 strikeouts in 155 2/3 innings. Lincecum is far from his Cy Young days in San Fran, and his K/9 has also dropped three straight years to 7.7 in 2014. He's had his share of control problems recently, and he's not missing as many bats anymore. Consider Lincecum mainly an NL-only commodity, but he's worth consideration at the tail end of deep mixed leagues, as well.

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum has all but been named the No. 5 starter by manager Bruce Bochy. SPs Ryan Vogelsong and Gregorio Petit will start the year in the bullpen, because Bochy prefers not to have a six-man rotation.
Fantasy Tip: Lincecum will likely open as the No. 5 starter, but that spot could be a revolving door between the three as the year progresses based on performance and rest needs. As a result, there's not much intrigue surrounding Lincecum in a standard 12-team league. He's more of a candidate for an NL-only pitching staff.
