Free agent Tim Lincecum held his throwing session for scouts Thursday, and sources told FanRag's Jon Heyman that he was throwing 90-93 mph.
He had 25-30 scouts watching him, Heyman reports. It'd be awesome to see Lincecum pull off a successful comeback, but most don't realize just how bad he was in his final four years in San Francisco; white he was OK in 2015 before getting hurt, it's the only time since 2011 that he's been anything close to average. There shouldn't be any expectations here. Feb 15 - 4:27 PM

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Cardinals will be among the teams at Tim Lincecum's showcase on Thursday.

The list of confirmed teams planning to send representatives also includes the Angels, Orioles, Twins, Giants, Dodgers, Yankees, Brewers, Padres, Tigers, Phillies, and Rangers. Lincecum will go through a throwing workout at the Driveline Baseball Research Lab in Kent, Washington in the hope of getting another shot at the major league level. He sat out the 2017 season after posting a 9.16 ERA and 2.37 WHIP in nine starts with the Angels in 2016.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Angels will attend Tim Lincecum's showcase on Thursday in Kent, Washington.

Lincecum posted a horrendous 9.16 ERA and 2.37 WHIP over nine starts with the Angels in 2016 and didn't pitch at all in 2017, but the club is apparently intrigued by the progress he has made this winter in his workouts at the Driveline Baseball Research Lab just outside of Seattle. That is where Thursday's showcase for interested teams is scheduled to take place. There will also be representatives from the Orioles, Twins, Giants, Dodgers, Yankees, Brewers, Padres, Tigers, Phillies, and Rangers. And probably some others as well.
Feb 14 - 11:35 AM

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said his club will have representation at Tim Lincecum's showcase on Thursday.

Lincecum is scheduled to throw for scouts and front office members of interested teams this Thursday at Driveline Baseball Research Lab outside of Seattle. Word is the Giants, Dodgers, Yankees, Brewers, Padres, Tigers, Phillies, Rangers, and Twins will also be in attendance. There will probably be some others as well. Lincecum didn't pitch anywhere professionally in 2017 and posted a 9.16 ERA over nine starts with the Angels in 2016, but the 33-year-old right-hander has reportedly looked quite impressive in recent private workouts.
Feb 13 - 4:43 PM

According to Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com, the Twins will be present for Tim Lincecum's showcase on Thursday.

Add another team to the list. The Yankees, Brewers, Giants, and Padres are among the other clubs expected to attend. Lincecum didn't pitch at all last season and had an unsightly 9.16 ERA over nine starts with the Angels in 2016, but he's gotten in great shape in hopes of resurrecting his career. The Twins have an obvious need for a starter, though Lincecum is a huge wild card at this point.
Feb 13 - 2:31 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Yankees and Brewers will be at Tim Lincecum's showcase on Thursday in Seattle.

Add them to a list that includes (so far) the Giants and Padres. Lincecum last pitched in 2016 with the Angels, putting up an ugly 9.16 ERA over nine starts. He's reportedly gotten himself in better shape and is throwing harder in workouts this offseason.
Feb 12 - 11:21 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Padres will be at Tim Lincecum's showcase on Thursday in Seattle.

Heyman notes that the Padres scouted Lincecum last year, although they obviously opted against signing him. Lincecum didn't pitch anywhere in 2017 and held a 9.16 ERA across nine starts for the Angels in 2016, but he's reportedly been topping 90 mph on the radar gun lately in workouts. Heyman has also reported that the Giants will be at the showcase.
Feb 12 - 7:50 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Giants will be in attendance at Tim Lincecum's showcase on Thursday in Seattle.

Lincecum didn't pitch anywhere in 2017 after posting a 9.16 ERA across nine starts for the Angels in 2016, but he's gotten himself in better shape and is reportedly topping 90 mph on the radar gun in workouts. Several teams are expected to be at Lincecum's showcase later this week, with the Mets being one club that's been monitoring him, according to Heyman. Lincecum "is believed to relish the opportunity to return to his old stamping grounds" in San Francisco, Heyman says.
Feb 11 - 3:26 PM

Free agent right-hander Tim Lincecum is scheduled to throw for scouts from interested teams on Thursday, February 15.

The showcase will take place at Driveline Baseball Research Lab in Kent, Washington, where Lincecum has been working out all winter. The 33-year-old former two-time Cy Young Award winner did not pitch professionally in 2017 and he struggled mightily with the Angels in 2016, but he should be able to find a minor league contract and camp invite if things go well during next week's workout. Lincecum has built an impressive amount of upper-body muscle and reportedly regained some velocity on his fastball.
Feb 6 - 7:03 PM

Tim Lincecum is planning to throw for teams at a showcase "in the near future."

That information comes from Kyle Boddy of Driveline Baseball, who shared a picture of a jacked-up Lincecum working out at his facility on Tuesday evening. Lincecum didn't pitch anywhere professionally in 2017 and he allowed 41 runs -- 39 earned -- over 38 1/3 innings with the Angels in 2016, but the two-time Cy Young Award winner is only 33 years old and will probably get a spring training invitation from some club if his upcoming showcase goes well. Reports have been very positive about his recent training efforts.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, "several" teams have shown interest in free agent Tim Lincecum.

That's surprising after Lincecum fell flat in his brief stint with the Angels last season. The 32-year-old has reportedly been throwing in his native Seattle in preparation for an upcoming showcase. The best he can probably hope for is a minor league deal.
Thu, Feb 23, 2017 05:04:00 PM

Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reports free agent Tim Lincecum has no plans to retire.

Lincecum didn't look like he had much left in the tank last season but isn't ready to hang up his cleats just yet. The two-time Cy Young winner is still hoping to get another shot as a big-league starter, though a minor league deal is probably the best he can hope for. Lincecum logged a dismal 9.18 ERA over nine starts for the Angels last season. He turns 33 in June.
Sat, Jan 21, 2017 05:02:00 PM

Tim Lincecum will not be called back up by the Angels this season.

Lincecum was pushed off the Angels' 40-man roster in early August after posting a dreadful 9.16 ERA and 2.37 WHIP across nine starts. There's no real reason to add him back to the mix now, even though he had been pitching pretty well at Triple-A Salt Lake. The 32-year-old right-hander will be a free agent this winter.

Angels sent RHP Tim Lincecum outright to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Lincecum was designated for assignment over the weekend and has decided to accept an assignment to Triple-A rather than test free agency. It's unclear whether he'll start or relieve in the minors, but his future in the majors is in serious question right now.
Tue, Aug 9, 2016 02:28:00 PM

Tim Lincecum is undecided about whether to accept an assignment to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Angels general manager Billy Eppler has been in touch with the former Cy Young Award winner since he was designated for assignment over the weekend, but he's still mulling over his options. The Angels want Lincecum to go to Triple-A to work on things, but he could try his luck in free agency. It's unlikely he'd draw much interest at this point. Lincecum was rocked to the tune of a 9.16 ERA over nine starts prior to getting the boot.
