Orioles | Baltimore keeping tabs on Lincecum

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 13:17:20 -0800

The Baltimore Orioles are "one of several teams" that have expressed interest in free-agent SP Tim Lincecum (Giants), according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum went 7-4 with a 4.13 ERA and 1.48 WHIP in 15 starts last season with the San Francisco Giants before eventually undergoing hip surgery. The four-time All-Star hasn't posted a sub-4.37 ERA in four years and his strikeout totals have dropped precipitously over the last three. Lincecum's decline has been somewhat mitigated by the cozy dimensions of AT&T Park but would likely get exposed with the move to Camden Yards, making him a pitcher to ignore on draft day if he winds up in Baltimore.

Giants | Tim Lincecum unlikely to re-sign

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 11:03:45 -0800

Free-agent SP Tim Lincecum (Giants) is unlikely to re-sign with the San Francisco Giants with their starting rotation already full. Lincecum could, however, be considered for a bullpen role as he recovers from hip surgery. SP Chris Heston, who made 31 starts for the Giants last year, also appears headed for a bullpen role.

Fantasy Tip: Injury concerns are Lincecum's biggest hurdle heading into the 2016 season, and he'll likely sign somewhere for plenty of incentives. There's no guarantee he'll be a starter again wherever he lands, and there's plenty of fantasy risk surrounding him in NL-only leagues.

Marlins | MIA interested in veteran starters

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 17:21:44 -0800

The Miami Marlins are expected to attend the workouts of free-agent SPs Cliff Lee (Phillies) and Tim Lincecum (Giants).

Fantasy Tip: It's difficult to tell whether the Fish are seriously interested in the injury-plagued veterans or just doing their due diligence. The 37-year-old Lee missed the entire 2015 season because of a left elbow injury but has already resumed throwing. Lincecum, 31, is recovering from left hip surgery and is expected to throw for teams in mid-January. Both pitchers should be viewed as late-round fliers in deep mixed leagues regardless of where they wind up.

MLB | Tim Lincecum attractive to clubs

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 11:00:33 -0800

Free-agent SP Tim Lincecum (hip) is drawing interest from a good amount of teams after he has recovered nicely from hip surgery. He is set to throw for teams in mid-January.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum has fallen on hard times of late, and he hasn't posted a sub-4.00 ERA in the last four years. He won't be an option in shallow mixed leagues in 2016, but he could be worth a stab as a late-round flier in deep mixed or single-universe leagues if he lands in the right situation and proves healthy.

MLB | Tim Lincecum to throw in January

Tue, 24 Nov 2015 06:18:31 -0800

Free-agent SP Tim Lincecum (hip) will throw for teams in January after he recovers from September hip surgery, according to sources. Lincecum has spent the offseason funding his own rehabilitation in Scottsdale, Ariz., where he's receiving daily guidance from a hip-rehab specialist who worked at the Colorado clinic where he underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip and fix an impingement.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum could be worth a final spot on your fantasy pitching staff if he comes to spring training healthy with a shot at a rotation spot.

Giants | Tim Lincecum had left hip surgery

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 18:07:15 -0700

Updating previous reports, San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (hip) underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left hip Thursday, Sept. 3, and the doctor said his right hip was fine. The medical staff will continue to monitor the right side as his rehab continues.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) will begin the rehab process with range of motion exercises Friday, Sept. 4, and will remain in Colorado through the weekend before continuing to rehab in Arizona. According to trainer Dave Groeschner, he is expected to need five months of recovery time and should be ready to participate in spring training. The soon-to-be free agent may be worth a late-round flier in drafts for NL-only and deep mixed leagues next spring.

Giants | Tim Lincecum facing lengthy rehab

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 16:12:54 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (hip) is looking at a five-month recovery after having hip surgery Thursday, Sept. 3, according to head trainer Dave Groeschner. The procedure involved fixing a torn labrum and shaving down the bone to treat an impingement.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has enough time to recover in time for spring training next year, but that's far from a guarantee. Hip injuries can be tricky, especially for a pitcher like Lincecum of short stature who relies on plenty of torque from his hips to generate velocity. He probably shouldn't be drafted in shallow mixed leagues in 2016, but he could be worth a late-round flier in deeper leagues if he's throwing in spring training.

Giants | Tim Lincecum will have hip surgery

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 14:21:04 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (hip) will undergo season-ending hip surgery, according to general manager Bobby Evans. "The next step for him is to do everything he can and get back and get well, but it's going to take him out for the season," Evans said. "What that leads to in terms of his progression healthwise will dictate what opportunities he has with us or elsewhere."

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum has a long road ahead of him before returning to fantasy relevancy. After all, he owns a 4.68 ERA through his last 615 2/3 innings dating back to the beginning of the 2012 season. He might be best suited as a reliever going forward, too. At best, he is a late-round flier next spring and potential NL-only and cavernous mixed option.

Giants | Tim Lincecum done for the year

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 09:30:56 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (hip) has been shut down for the season, according to the Giants general manager.

Fantasy Tip: While it wasn't relayed, it's likely that Lincecum ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) will have surgery on his hip in the near future to fix a degenerative condition. The surgery should allow him to be ready for spring training in 2016 barring any setbacks. Lincecum will be a late-round flier in fantasy drafts next spring, and he could be a surprise performer if he can regain his velocity. He could also be pitching for another team next year, as he'll be a free agent this winter.

Giants | Tim Lincecum may need surgery

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 11:08:47 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (hip) will visit with a hip specialist in Colorado Wednesday, Sept. 2, to determine if he'll need to have surgery on his degenerative hip. He's already visited multiple doctors for his injury, and he's expected to make a final decision tomorrow. Lincecum doesn't have severe pain, but he's bothered by instability that has often caused him to slip on the mound during his rehab. Doctors have told him he would be ready for spring training if he undergoes surgery, and they believe his velocity decline is directly related to his hip. Lincecum wasn't progressing as he hoped after receiving multiple cortisone shots.

Fantasy Tip: Either way, Lincecum ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has likely thrown his last pitch for the Giants this year, so he can be ignored everywhere. If he recovers in time for the regular season next year, he could be a flier in the late rounds of fantasy drafts, and as a free agent this winter, his best chances to make a fantasy impact in 2016 may be somewhere other than SF.
