Report: Giants could bring back Tim Lincecum
Tim Lincecum is still looking for a way back into Major League Baseball, and his former team could be willing to give him that route.
According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the San Francisco Giants have been eyeing Lincecum and will attend his scheduled showcase for teams on Thursday.
While numerous teams are expected to attend the showcase, the Giants may have the inside track. According to Heyman, Lincecum still maintains excellent relations with the organization, and they may be able to offer him a bullpen role.
Lincecum won two Cy Young awards and three World Series titles in San Francisco before his career flamed out, with his most recent big league stint coming in a brutal spell with the Los Angeles Angels in 2016. The 33-year-old has been working out with the aim of finding a job for 2018.
