San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (9-7) allowed six runs on nine hits over 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday, July 25, with no walks and six strikeouts. It was his first appearance since he recorded a save in an extra-inning game against the Philadelphia Phillies Tuesday, July 22. However, manager Bruce Bochy did not feel Lincecum was tired Friday because of his Tuesday appearance, since he usually throws a bullpen session on that day between starts.

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum has pitched well since he was beat around by the Cincinnati Reds Tuesday, June 3. He has won five of seven starts, struck out 37 batters in 48 1/3 innings pitched and posted a 1.86 ERA.
Fantasy Tip: Lincecum's ho-hitter helps the overall stats, but he has allowed two earned runs or less in five of his last seven outings. Until he proves otherwise, start Lincecum in all formats.

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum followed up his no-hit performance by tossing eight sharp innings to beat the St. Louis Cardinals Tuesday, July 1. He allowed just four hits while striking out six and walking two in the outing. Lincecum threw 73 of his 113 pitches for strikes against the Cardinals.
Fantasy Tip: Lincecum has been in his Cy Young form in his last two starts. Whatever he's doing, it's working, and if he's on your waiver wire still, now is the time to give him a shot in hopes that he can at least keep some of this momentum going.

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum threw a no-hitter Wednesday, June 25, against the San Diego Padres. It's his second no-no; his first also came against the Padres last year. Lincecum walked just one batter while striking out six.
Fantasy Tip: He was rather efficient, throwing 113 pitches. Still, it might not be a bad time to sell him. His value won't be higher this season.
