Giants | Tim Lincecum not close to returning

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 18:56:08 -0700

Contrary to a previous report, San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy said SP Tim Lincecum (hip) is "not close" to returning from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain if Lincecum ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) will rejoin the rotation or head to the bullpen when he is healthy enough to return. If he does return to a starting role, FantasyScore owners should avoid using him in his first game back so that he can prove he is both healthy and effective.

Giants | Tim Lincecum nearing a return

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 18:44:52 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (hip) is expected to be ready to return from the 15-day disabled list Sept. 1, manager Bruce Bochy said Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) could be used in the rotation, or he might be used out of the bullpen. His status is up in the air. FantasyScore players should ignore him until he can officially return to the rotation and prove his health through a full start without any setbacks.

Giants | Tim Lincecum to face hitters

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 23:48:32 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (hip) is scheduled to face hitters in a simulated game later this week.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is nearer to a return to the roster, but you should leave him off FantasyScore until he has had a chance to prove himself with a start or two.

Giants | Tim Lincecum not ready

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 12:25:09 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (arm) isn't ready to go on a rehab assignment after throwing off a bullpen mound Tuesday, Aug. 10, according to manager Bruce Bochy. The team plans on stretching Lincecum out some more, but there is no word on when he will face live hitters or throw in a simulated game.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) appears to be behind Tim Hudson in his rehab. There's a chance the Giants use Lincecum as a reliever when he's ready to return, which would kill all of his fantasy value. If Lincecum returns to the rotation, he'll mainly be a matchup play in deep mixed leagues and on FantasyScore.

Giants | Tim Lincecum throws bullpen

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 18:19:22 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (arm) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain when Lincecum ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) will be able to make his way back to the rotation, if at all this season. FantasyScore players will want to steer clear until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game or two.

Giants | Tim Lincecum starts soft toss

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 05:31:08 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (arm) started doing some soft toss Saturday, Aug. 1. Manager Bruce Bochy said Lincecum is making progress.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has been on the disabled list since getting hit in the arm, but he's also dealing with deterioration of his hips. It is unclear when he'll be able to return to the mound this season, and he should only be stashed in deeper NL-only leagues.

Giants | Tim Lincecum has fraying in hips

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 09:07:22 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (hips) was diagnosed with fraying in the labrum of both of his hips. He is trying to rest and rehab after receiving cortisone shots in the hips in a final attempt to get back on the mound this year, according to people familiar with the situation. The issues have bothered him for a couple of years, and surgery is an option if the cortisone shots don't alleviate the problem.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum doesn't have a clear path to a rotation spot when he returns, and a return sounds questionable right now. He's worth stashing on the DL in NL-only formats if you have the room. Otherwise, it's time to cut bait with the two-time Cy Young winner.

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 17:23:05 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (hip) was examined in Nashville, Tenn., Monday, July 20, and he received a cortisone shot for a degenerative hip condition.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) hasn't pitched since June 27, and he doesn't appear anywhere close to a return. Fantasy owners should feel free to move on.

Giants | Tim Lincecum not close to returning

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 17:41:57 -0700

No timetable has been established for San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum's (forearm) return, according to manager Bruce Bochy. "He'll be out here doing some running and some throwing, but he's still in a rehab mode," Bochy said.

Fantasy Tip: Barring another injury to one of San Francisco's starters, Lincecum ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is likely to pitch out of the bullpen when he returns from the disabled list due to the logjam the team has in their rotation. As long as he's pitching in relief, Lincecum won't have any FantasyScore value.

Giants | Tim Lincecum plays catch

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 17:45:19 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (forearm) was able to play catch Monday, July 6, as he makes his way back from a forearm contusion.

Fantasy Tip: Linecum ($4,200; or 8.4% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and make his way through a full start without any setbacks.
