OUTTim Lincecum SP SF 4 weeks ago

Lincecum (hip) has not yet thrown a showcase for teams, and it is unclear when that will take place, or how his rehab his going, the San Francisco Chronicle's Ann Killion reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Multiple showcases have been rumored over the past couple months, as the free agent presumably intends on catching on with a team this season, but he has remained off the radar. His recovery from hip surgery was supposed to be complete in February, but that could be dragging on, and Lincecum is known as a perfectionist, so he may be delaying a showcase until he feels just right. Until he actually throws for teams, it's hard to pay him much mind in fantasy.

Lincecum is scheduled to throw in a showcase in Phoenix within the next couple weeks, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Lincecum has been throwing daily lately after undergoing hip surgery in September. The showcase was originally scheduled for mid-January, but has been moved back multiple times. The Padres are reportedly "very active" in their pursuit of the right-hander, but all 30 teams could be present at the showcase, which could complicate matters. His destination will probably become much clearer once he pitches in front of the teams, as they will be able to better assess how well he's healed and how good his arsenal still is.

Lincecum will report to the Giants' facility in Arizona on Wednesday to begin rehabbing his surgically-repaired hip, John Dickinson of 95.7 The Game reports. He's expected to require five-to-six months of recovery time.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Despite his standing as a two-time Cy Young winner, Lincecum is expected to see limited interest in free agency this winter on the heels of a four-year slide in his production. The 31-year-old could still have a second life as a reliever in the big leagues, but with the hip procedure likely keeping him out for all of spring training, he remains a risky investment for any team.

Lincecum was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Monday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Lincecum was already ruled out for the season, so the move to the 60-day disabled list was more procedural than anything, opening up a spot on the 40-man roster for Brett Bochy.

Giants' general manager, Bobby Evans, announced that Lincecum (hip) will miss the remainder of the season, CSN Bay Area reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Lincecum went to see a hip specialist in Colorado who recommended surgery for his ailing hip. Initially it seemed like the Giants placed Lincecum on the disabled list in order to give him a break from the rotation instead of sending him to the minors. Whether or not that is true, Lincecum ended up developing a degenerative hip issue and will miss the rest of the season.

Lincecum (hip) visited with a hip specialist in Colorado on Wednesday and they will determine the pitcher's next course of action Thursday, Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Lincecum has battled through a number of injuries throughout the season and it remains to be seen if he'll rejoin the roster again this season. Thursday's plan with Dr. Marc Philippon should shed some light on Lincecum's prognosis for the rest of the year, but even if he does make it back to the mound, it'll be in a low-leverage bullpen role in all likelihood.

Linecum (forearm) has encountered a setback in his recovery from hip and back discomfort, leading him to acknowledge the possibility that he may not pitch again this season, the San Jose Mercury News reports. "I really don't know. I mean, I hope not," said Lincecum. "I can't predict the future. I have good days and bad days. The bad days are outshining the good ones."

Competitive Edge Analysis

Originally placed on the disabled list with a forearm contusion, Lincecum is now bothered by both his hip and back, leaving him unable to throw for the past week. Even if he makes a late-season return, he'll likely be limited to a role in the bullpen. Lincecum will be a free agent after the season.

Lincecum (forearm), along with pitcher Tim Hudson (shoulder), is expected to be activated Sep. 1 or earlier, Andrew Baggarly of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Lincecum or Hudson could be available to pitch as early as Sunday, but manager Bruce Bochy did not provide concrete information regarding who the most likely candidate is.
