MLB: Lincecum designated for assignment by Angels - Mercury News

Angels: Tim Lincecum was designated for assignment on Saturday, bringing into question the professional future for the former Giants two-time Cy Young Award winner. The Angels made the move a day after Lincecum allowed six runs in the first inning of a 6-4 loss to Seattle. Lincecum is 2-6 with a 9.16 ERA in nine starts in his return from left hip surgery last September. Lincecum signed a $2.5 million, one-year contract with the Angels in May. Manager Mike Scioscia said the Angels are hopeful that Lincecum will accept an assignment to Triple-A.

Tim Lincecum’s debut for Angels goes better than he expected in 7-1 win over A’s - LA Times

The Freak is back with the freak turned low.

In the sixth inning, Lincecum clapped for his teammates when they turned a quick double play behind him. Lowrie lined his next pitch into left field, Robinson secured it, and fans again stood up to commend Lincecum on his performance.

His day was done. To use his favored idiom for fastball velocity, he did not pump any cheese, but he induced the kind of weak contact he could not in recent seasons for San Francisco.

“I’ve tried to scratch what’s been going on the last few years and tried to move on,” Lincecum said. “I’ve tried not to dwell on the past. I had some success in the last four years and a lot of not. So, I’m trying to let that go and move on to wherever I’m at right now.”

Tim Lincecum determined to be a major league starter again

“I think he threw the ball fine,” said Bud Black, the Angels’ special assistant to the general manager. “You could tell he might have been a little rusty the first innings but he looked good physically. The hip injury didn’t seem to be an issue and his arm motion looked the same. He was throwing 90 miles and his secondary pitches looked fine. He just needs to build some stamina.”
