Lincecum Eyeing Comeback

Published

on

Two time Cy Young Winner Tim Lincecum is eyeing a comeback in 2018. Lincecum who last pitched for the Angels in 2016 held a showcase for teams up in the Seattle area. Lincecum fastball was reported being between 90-93 mph by John Heyman MLB network insider. The 93 Mph was an upgrade from his 88 mph in 2016 when he pitched for the Angels. A scout who was at the workout reported that Lincecum was around the strike zone and is in great shape adding some muscle. It was reported that Lincecum had an offer from a major league team.

Lincecum who had his best years with the Giants from 2008 to 2011 were he posted a 62-36 record with a w 2.81 ERA, 10 k/9innings. Also in that time frame, Lincecum became the first pitcher ever to win back to back Cy Young awards. Lincecum helped lead the Giants tot there first World Series win since 1958 in 2010 against the Rangers. In his last year with the Angels Lincecum was not really good, he made 9 starts and posted a 9.14 ERA which is not good.

It would be nice to see Lincecum get back into baseball and pitch some good games whether it is starting or in relief. Lincecum is to good of a pitcher to go out like he did with the Angels. Hopefully, he can redeem his self from his later years and get some his early magic back.
