Tim Lincecum is day-to-day with lower back soreness

5 Comments

Tim Lincecum didn’t participate in the Giants group throwing session today because of lower back soreness, according to Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com.

He did, however, throw alongside a trainer on a different field and is considered day-to-day with the minor injury, so nothing for Giants fans to get too worried about yet.

Baggarly notes that Lincecum “looked just fine” during a bullpen session over the weekend.

On Monday, the Pirates announced the club suspended reliever Keone Kela two games for an unspecified contract violation. Kela will begin serving the suspension tonight.

Kela, 26, went on the injured list in early May with a right shoulder injury. He was on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis for the last week and a half. Prior to the injury, Kela posted a 4.63 ERA with an 11/4 K/BB ratio in 11 2/3 innings.

After sitting out Monday and Tuesday, Kela can rejoin the Pirates on Wednesday in the middle of their four-game home series against the Cardinals.
