Tim Lincecum to Pitch for Clubs Friday in Comeback Bid
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Two-time NL Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum will pitch for major league clubs in a showcase event Friday as he attempts to make a comeback bid from hip surgery last year.
The free agent right-hander is set to throw in a showcase event Friday in Arizona, according to Paul Kuo, spokesman for Lincecum's agency, Beverly Hills Sports Council. A location and time were not yet announced for the session.
The San Francisco Giants have planned to be in attendance, not necessarily meaning they will re-sign the pitcher who helped them win three World Series in five years.
The 31-year-old Lincecum underwent an arthroscopic procedure on his hip Sept. 3. He hopes to pitch for a big league team this season.
