Tim Lincecum may not make Angels debut for two weeks
Tim Lincecum is expected to make at least one more start in the minors before joining the Los Angeles Angels.
Lincecum told reporters on Tuesday that he will pitch for the Triple-A Salt Lake Bees again on Sunday and evaluate things from there.
Lincecum told us he will have one more outing with the Bees and "see how he's feeling."

Lincecum threw five innings for the Bees on Tuesday, surrendering two earned runs on three hits and two walks. He struck out five batters. Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register noted that Lincecum’s velocity hovered in the 88-91 range, which was the same as his first start in Triple-A. He may have been reaching back for a bit more in his showcase for scouts last month.
No one expects Lincecum to be the pitcher he once was with the San Francisco Giants, but the Angels don’t have much to lose. If he can give them a solid five or six innings in the majority of his starts, they’d be happy with that.
