Lincecum Free Agent

Recommended Posts

Nobody will be signing him until later in the off season....putting on a showcase in Jan, wonder if he can really regain some velocity:

Tim Lincecum (hip) plans to hold a showcase for interested teams in January.

Lincecum underwent surgery in September to repair a torn labrum in his hip and fix an impingement. His rehab process is ahead of schedule and he could receive clearance to begin throwing when he visits his surgeon for a follow-up in December. The hope is that he might be able to regain some velocity now that his hip pain is gone.

I mentioned him a month or so ago as someone I'd consider on a contract with very low base and large incentives with a team option for a 2nd year.

What types of incentives are permitted?

OOOOOOOOOOOO 2016

Timmy got $40 Million for 2012 and 2013.

Timmy got $35 Million for 2014 and 2015.

What will he get as a free agent for 2016 (and perhaps) 2017 ???

Tim Lincecum Eyes February Showcase: Giants Seem a Dark Horse

(By John Shea)

I saw that article, was going to post the link. But you beat me to it.

I wonder if Tim would be some sort of DD sort of reclamation project. Maybe he should sign him for an incentive-laden deal.

Most of us have tried to forget Rowell....yet Timmy and his uncanny ability to win Cy Youngs and World Series rings has made this rather difficult.

Here is something we all forget, which softens the blow a bit....from wiki...you just can't figure out drafting...

Lincecum was selected by the Chicago Cubs of the NL in the 48th round (1,408th overall) of the 2003 MLB Draft, but did not sign.[7] He decided to attend college instead, and was selected by the Cleveland Indians in the 42nd round (1,261st overall) upon re-entering the draft in 2005, but rejected an offer including a $700,000 signing bonus.[6] The next year, he was drafted tenth overall by the San Francisco Giants, becoming the first player from the University of Washington to be taken in the first round.[2] He signed for a $2.025 million signing bonus on June 30, which at the time was the most the organization had ever paid to any amateur player.[8][a]

    • Imagine the possibilities if Macphail was allowed to trade draft picks. I hope that’s in the new CBA. 
    • I saw these lists on MLBTR and thought I hope @Luke-OH has some info on these guys. Thanks.   
    • Hopefully the Astros are forced to fire this guy and he can quietly take a role with us. 
    • I think it’s more of the “I’ll believe it when I see it” mentality.  Right now we have $2.5 million just chilling. Ready for us to spend it.  This is how you prevent 14 straight years of losing. Our last winning year was 2016. I don’t think we sniff winning till 2023 with the state of our pitching staff. That’s 7 years and half way there.  We spent our full draft pull money this year. Seems odd we keep having this international pool money left over. Odd or... maybe some of that old philosophy is still lingering. 
    • I haven't looked at the position players, but there are a number of pitchers on that list who are interesting.  From a simple performance based analysis, Juan Minaya 29yo with 128 innings of 3.93 ERA ball in the majors. It's nothing exciting, but he's been a solid middle reliever. He's also tinkered with his offspeed/breaking pitches a bit and there may be some potential improvements in pitch mix/selection.  Chasen Shreve 29yo with 203 innings of 3.71 ERA ball in the majors. He was stuck in AAA this year because of the strength of the Cardinals bullpen, where he had a 3.45 ERA, a full 2.4 runs under the league average 5.85 ERA. His FIP numbers aren't good, but he's one of those few guys who consistently beats his FIP numbers.  An interesting spin rate dude, Dan Winkler Of 600 pitchers who threw 50 of more 4S fastballs in 2019, Winkler had the 15th highest RPM/MPH on his fastball. There is evidence that he's not using the pitch as well as he could, locating primarily middle of the zone and down, exactly where a high spin fastball plays poorly. Winkler is also only a year removed from a strong year as an important part of the Braves bullpen. He's only 29 years old.  Finally, a guy who is probably the riskiest of the group, but has serious stuff but has never put it together, Bryan Mitchell He's coming off a lost year, but at his best he averaged almost 95mph as a SP and added a 90mph cutter, and nasty high spin curveball. He should miss bats, but he doesn't. He's also battled some injuries. If he's healthy, he's the type of guy you sell the opportunity of the wide open O's pitching staff and you see if you can't make some tweaks to get him on track. He's 28 years old.
