Giants | Tim Lincecum unlikely to be moved, become RP
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.
