Lincecum (forearm) threw three simulated innings on the bullpen mound Friday, CSN Bay Area reports.

Manager Bruce Bochy said Lincecum still "needs a little work" and that he was "a touch behind" Tim Hudson (shoulder), who also tossed three simulated frames. It's still a step in the right direction for Lincecum, though the team does not have any immediate plans to send him for a rehab assignment and it doesn't have any incentive to rush him back with both Matt Cain and Jake Peavy pitching well.

Lincecum (forearm) played catch Monday, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

Though it resulted in his placement on the DL last week, Lincecum's forearm contusion isn't expected to sideline him much further beyond the 15-day minimum. Even so, it seems unlikely at this point that Lincecum will have a rotation spot awaiting him in the second half, as the Giants have since bolstered their rotation with the additions of Matt Cain and Jake Peavy from the DL. After a decent start to the season, Lincecum fizzled out before being sidelined by the injury, and now sports a 4.13 ERA and 1.48 WHIP over 76.1 innings.
