|Tim Lincecum tosses three scoreless innings Friday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/7/14) Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum maintained a 0.00 spring ERA by throwing three scoreless innings Friday, allowing just two hits in his team's 5-0 win against the Royals.
"My curveball felt good, I threw a few sliders in for first pitches -- and that was a pitch that it didn't take too long to get the feel for," Lincecum told MLB.com after the start.
Lincecum threw two scoreless innings in Monday's debut. He'll look to continue last year's improvement from a dismal 2012 season when the regular season begins.
|Tim Lincecum tosses two scoreless innings vs. Padres |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/3/14) Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum allowed just one hit and one walk while striking out one in two innings of action Monday as the Giants fell to the Padres, 7-2.
Lincecum is starting his 2014 spring-training season off on the right foot after giving up 18 earned runs in 15 1/3 innings last spring. He went 10-14 with a 4.37 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 193:76 K:BB ratio in 197 2/3 innings last season.
|Tim Lincecum soaking in words of wisdom from Tim Hudson |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(2/21/14) Conversations with veteran teammate Tim Hudson has convinced struggling Giants right-hander Tim Lincecum that he needs to keep the ball low and pitch more to contact.
Lincecum has gone through a surprising career slump after four sensational seasons, though he did rebound from a miserable 2012 with a more respectable season in which he had a 10-14 record with a 4.37 ERA. But his WHIP has soared, leading him to believe he needs to change his approach. His talks with Hudson have centered on a need to keep the ball down.
"When I take a look back at years where I've scuffled ... I look at guys like (Hudson) who have had success even in later years and look at how they did that," Lincecum explained to the San Jose Mercury News. "He was just more about sticking to the bottom of the zone and relying on movement, taking away the stress of 'can I get guys out up in the zone and is my stuff going to be there.' I've been more awry than not the last couple of years."
Lincecum is listed as third in the rotation in the Giants depth chart heading into the 2014 season.
|Tim Lincecum 'pretty confident' after change to offseason routine |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(2/16/14) Giants starting pitcher Tim Lincecum changed up his offseason routine. Lincecum used to avoid throwing off a mound in the offseason, but this winter he rented a warehouse in Seattle, installed an artifical mound and threw many times.
"I feel strong. I'm pretty confident," Lincecum said, per the San Jose Mercury News.
|Tim Lincecum will study hitters this season |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(2/2/14) Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum will begin studying opposing hitters this season, according to the Associated Press.
Lincecum said he was initially opposed to the idea. "It was one of those things I didn't want to admit that I needed," he said. Lincecum has dealt with a reduced fastball the past two seasons, and hasn't been able to get back to Cy Young form. By studying hitters, he can hopefully become more effective despite dimished stuff. Lincecum said he also plans to speak with new Giants pitcher Tim Hudson on how to throw a more effective sinker.
|Tim Lincecum is coming off the two worst seasons of his career and hasn't been in the Cy Young mix since 2011. Yet, the Giants still chose to pay Lincecum like an ace, signing him to a two-year, $35 million contract extension in the offseason. Although he finished with more losses than wins for a third straight season, Lincecum still managed double-digit victories for a sixth straight season in 2013 and did improve after posting a career-worst 5.18 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 2012. Lincecum had a 4.37 ERA and 1.32 WHIP last season. Lincecum helped his cause by getting his walk rate (3.5 BB/9) back to his career norm and striking out 190-plus batters for a sixth straight season. However, Lincecum was still burned by the long ball at times, surrendering 20-plus homers for a second straight year. Though, one of his best efforts last season came when he threw a no-hitter July 13 at San Diego. Fantasy owners can no longer make the high-end investment you did when Lincecum was a perennial All-Star. He still might possess the ability to be a high-end Fantasy option, but he's more of a mid-to-late-round Fantasy selection.
