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.

Giants | Tim Lincecum received cortisone shot

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.

Giants | Tim Lincecum to DL

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 09:09:33 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (forearm) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right forearm contusion. The move is retroactive to June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum probably won't have a rotation spot to return to, barring another injury. He can be dumped in most formats. Matt Cain ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) takes his spot, but he's a watch list guy right now.

Giants | Tim Lincecum going on DL

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 14:48:20 -0700

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum (elbow) will be put on the disabled list when SP Matt Cain (elbow) is activated from the DL Thursday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Lincecum ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) went 3-2 and allowed 16 earned runs in 19 1/3 innings in five starts in June before being hit by a line drive in his last outing. He can be dropped in the majority of formats now that he's bumped out of the rotation. Cain ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is worth an addition in shallow mixed leagues if you have the room for a matchup play. He could pan out as a great sleeper play against the offensively-challenged Miami Marlins in his first start back Thursday, too. However, there's still plenty of risk attached, especially if he has a pitch limit.

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.
