What Happened to Tim Lincecum’s Workout?

It’s now March 6th, and still no final word on when Tim Lincecum‘s pitching session for scouts will occur.  For something that was originally shooting for a January date, and now well into spring training, it sure isn’t a good sign for Timmy’s future.

Whenever he’s ready to throw before scouts, at least some teams will sends scouts to watch.  However, the chances of him getting a major league contract for 2016 seem increasingly slim, since he will almost certainly have to spend time pitching in the minors to make up for his late start.

It’s now more than six months since his September 3rd hip surgery, and there’s got to be disappointment throughout his camp that he’s not ready yet.  At the end of the day, it’s far more important for Tim to wait his hip is really healed before he tries to go back out there.  It’s just a cause for concern that the previous hoped-for time-frames haven’t been met, and we’re currently in a void of media silence.

    Ask and ye shall receive. mlbtraderumors.com reports that Lincecum’s agent says the show-case will occur in the next two weeks. We shall see.

  2. Burly Says:

    Lincecum is reported by Jon Heyman to be throwing 90 mph on flat ground and that Timmy wants to be “perfect” when he holds his long-anticipated show-case. However, still no word on when that show-case is likely to occur.

  3. Burly Says:

    The latest news is that Timmie is pitching up to 70 pitches in a session and that his showcase will be “soon.” We’ve heard that before.

  4. Burly Says:

    espn.com is reporting that Tim’s “showcase” will be this coming Friday. Scouts from as many as 20 teams are expected to show up. Given the way Matt Cain and Jake Peavy have pitched so far in 2016, I would not be surprised if the Giants end up bringing Lincecum back if the price is right.
