Tim Lincecum reportedly on verge of signing with Angels

Tim-Lincecum-John-Smoltz

Over a month into the 2016 season, Tim Lincecum finally has a new home, and he’s staying on the west coast.

The longtime San Francisco Giant is reportedly closing in on a major league deal with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

It seems as though it came down to where Lincecum could start. Though he’s still weeks away from being in game shape, the Angels have plenty of injured starters and that won’t be addressed anytime soon. The Giants could only offer him a bullpen role, likely to the disappointment of Tom from MySpace.

There’s no way of knowing how effective Lincecum will be – he reportedly topped out at 92 MPH at his recent showcase – but the Angels are struggling and short of options, so they don’t have much to lose here.
