Tim Lincecum to Attempt Comeback with Rangers

  • Pin It

The two time Cy Young award winner is giving it one last go around.

Tim Lincecum, once one of the most feared pitchers in the game, is making an attempt at a comeback, signing a one year deal with the Texas Rangers on Wednesday.

Lincecum at 5’11” dominated Major League Baseball from 2007-2011. Five years of pure dominance shook Major League Baseball to its core and he helped lead the San Francisco Giants to the 2010 World Series title during that reign at the top. He was also a part of the 2012 and 2014 World Series winning teams during his decline from the upper echelon of starting pitchers.

After a mediocre 2015 season and mulling potential retirement due to injury and decline in play, Lincecum was signed by the Los Angeles Angels for the 2016 season and posted abysmal numbers. A 9.16 ERA in 38 1/3 innings and an atrocious 2.37 WHIP spelled the end for Lincecum.

However, after fixing some mechanical issues and holding workouts for a few teams, Lincecum gets one more shot in the majors . . .

As a reliever.

Lincecum is trying to reinvent himself and bring his once dominant self back to the mound in late inning situations. The 33 year old will have his shot to prove he can still go.

This may be his final opportunity.
