The Giants are going to lose, in all likelihood, Jake Peavy and Ryan Vogelsong. Or at least one of them. Maybe both. That leaves Madison Bumgarner and Tim Hudson as locks. Matt Cain if he’s healthy. Likely Yusmeiro Petit and . . .
Bochy on Lincecum: “Timmy, I see him going back in the rotation. We have a need there. That’s fair to say.”

Lincecum wasn’t used much in relief in the playoffs. He has been fighting it for years now, but it still seems like the Giants’ best bet would be to have him in the rotation.
