Tim Lincecum to hold “showcase” for teams in January


In an effort to show that he’s healthy following September hip surgery free agent Tim Lincecum will hold a “showcase” in January for interested teams to watch him throw.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that Lincecum has been rehabbing with a specialist in Arizona and hopes to surprise teams with how good he looks after some rough, injury filled years with the Giants.

He’s still just 31 years old, but Lincecum hasn’t posted an ERA below 4.00 since 2011 and his raw stuff has declined significantly during that time, making him look more like a back-of-the-rotation starter than the Cy Young-winning ace of old.
