Angels reportedly have interest in Tim Lincecum again

Tim Lincecum has not given up on pitching in the major leagues, and it sounds like there will be plenty of teams willing to give him a look at his showcase on Thursday.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, several teams are planning to send scouts to watch Lincecum. Among them will be the Los Angeles Angels, whom the right-hander played for in 2016.

Lincecum was one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball for several years, and he has two Cy Young Awards and three World Series championships to his name. His success came with the San Francisco Giants, who also are reportedly considering bringing him back.

It goes without saying that Lincecum will never return to the form that earned him the nickname “The Freak,” but he’s still just 33. If he’s healthy after his latest hip procedure, there’s a chance he could pitch in the majors again in 2018.
