Tim Lincecum Plans To Throw For MLB Teams In Showcase

Published

on

Former San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum hasn’t pitched a major league game since the 2016 season, but he is embarking on a comeback.

Lincecum’s last season in the majors was a nightmare. In a stint with the Los Angeles Angels he posted a putrid 9.16 ERA, 2.37 WHIP and 32 strikeouts in 38.1 innings.

Lincecum, 33, is hoping his resume will help him draw interest from teams. Lincecum is a two-time National League Cy Young Award winner, three-time World Series champion and four-time All-Star.

Kyle Boddy, founder and president of Driveline Baseball, shared an image of Lincecum on Tuesday and stated that Lincecum will be throwing for teams in a showcase, the first official steps in his comeback.
