Giants | Tim Lincecum likely to DL

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 09:40:56 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (elbow) is likely to be added to the disabled list after being hit by a line drive in the second inning of the game Sunday, June 28, against the Colorado Rockies. Lincecum told reporters that his elbow felt tight and that he was experiencing swelling. If he is placed on the DL it will be the first time Lincecum has been placed on the DL in his career.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) hasn't pitched well this season and there was speculation that he could lose his place in the starting rotation when SP Matt Cain (forearm) and SP Jake Peavy (back) returned from injury. Lincecum hasn't been a reliable fantasy performer and now it looks like he will be moving to the bullpen. He can be dropped in shallower mixed leagues.

Giants | Tim Lincecum avoids serious injury

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 18:00:20 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum's (forearm) X-rays on his bruised right forearm were negative, but he could still land on the disabled list after being hit by a comebacker Saturday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: With Matt Cain and Jake Peavy due to return from the disabled list in the coming week, placing Lincecum ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) on the DL would open up a spot. Meanwhile, Lincecum may not have a spot in the rotation to return to if either Cain or Peavy pitches well. He had been struggling for the last month anyway, and there is a good chance his value at FantasyScore could be completely disappearing.

Giants | Tim Lincecum exits

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 13:45:43 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (elbow) was hit by a comebacker on his right elbow Saturday, June 27, and was forced from the game.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) allowed three runs in less than two innings, and his rotation spot was already in jeopardy. This may seal his fate for the near future.

Giants | Jake Peavy will make one more start

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 16:57:14 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy (back) will make one more rehab start at Class AAA, and he is tentatively scheduled to rejoin the Giants' rotation July 3. SP Tim Lincecum would be normally slotted for that start, based on the current rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Peavy ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) doesn't have much value beyond NL-only leagues. Mixed-league owners will need to see some strong performances from the veteran before streaming him for ideal matchups.

Giants | Tim Lincecum has shortest outing

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 05:51:42 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum allowed five runs on seven hits in 1 1/3 innings of his loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday, June 21, in the shortest start of his career. His average fastball velocity has dropped from 89.5 mph last year to 87.5 mph this season.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) was great in his first few starts, but he has failed to get through six innings in five of six starts. Jake Peavy (back) and Matt Cain (elbow) are knocking on the door and he could lose his spot. Either way, he's too volatile to trust on FantasyScore.

Giants | Tim Lincecum has good history vs. Mets

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 12:06:10 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum is 6-1 with a 2.88 ERA in 11 career starts against the New York Mets, but he hasn't faced them since 2012. Lincecum is 2-0 with a 1.50 ERA in his last three starts at Citi Field, and he's 2-1 in his previous three starts, giving up four runs in each outing.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) lines up tonight looking like a nice play on FantasyScore without any true aces to choose from. The Mets are battered and struggling on offense after being no hit two days ago, too. New York ranks 27th in all of baseball with an OPS of just .665 against right-handed pitchers.

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 19:52:02 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum allowed four runs on five hits over six innings in a victory over the Philadelphia Phillies Friday, June 5, with two walks and four strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the mediocre stat line Friday, Lincecum ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) improved to 5-1 in his last seven starts and has made a dramatic improvement over the last three seasons. Be mindful of the matchup situations before using him in future FantasyScore contests.

Giants | Tim Lincecum has scoreless streak snapped

Sun, 31 May 2015 04:16:27 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum saw his string of 23 straight scoreless innings snapped Saturday, May 30, against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) picked up his first loss after a 4-0 start, but he had shown signs of turning things around a little following struggles in recent years. Keep him on your list of starters to watch, but obviously keep the matchup situations in mind.

Giants | Tim Lincecum has terrific outing

Wed, 20 May 2015 22:33:15 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum pitched seven scoreless innings against the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday, May 20. He allowed three hits while striking out four batters and walking two batters.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has allowed runs in only one of his last four starts and currently has a 2.08 ERA. Lincecum could be a solid option for owners on FantasyScore against certain matchups.

Giants | Tim Lincecum has never beat Reds

Thu, 14 May 2015 13:02:40 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum has a 0-4 record with a 9.79 ERA against the Cincinnati Reds during his career, and the Reds are the only National League team Linecum has not registered a victory against. Lincecum is starting against Cincinnati Thursday, May 14.

Fantasy Tip: At least thus far, Lincecum ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) is having a bounce-back season. He is sporting a 2.00 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP and a 7.0 K/9 over six starts this season with three wins. FantasyScore players shouldn't overreact to Lincecum's past struggles against the Reds. Matching up against ace Johnny Cueto and a potentially high-scoring offense is of greater concern, after all. View Linecum as a high-risk, high-reward option in daily contests Thursday.
