MLB Injury News:
Fresh off of a 148 pitch no-hitter, Tim Lincecum is garnering some interest from teams, A team that is interested in him is the Detroit Tigers, according to Jon Morosi of Fox Sports.
While the level of interest isn't clear, we still have to figure out if the Giants will be buyers or sellers at the deadline. The thought before the teams four game series against the Padres was that they were going to sell, but after the Giants started to hit and pitch to it's known ability, those opinions started to change.
If the Tigers did acquire Lincecum, Morosi says that they would use him as a reliever. Lincecum has experience as a reliever, as he pitched in relief in the Giants World Series run last year. He did struggle as a starter then, but when the Giants moved him to the 'pen, he looked like a completely different pitcher, in a good way.
The Tigers likely wouldn't give up any elite prospects for Lincecum, as he has been inconsistent in the past few years and he has a 22 million dollar salary for 2013. After this year, Lincecum is a free agent, so if a team were to want a player to help push them towards the World Series, Lincecum could be a likely target. On the year, Lincecum is 5-9 with a 4.26 ERA and a 125/48 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Lincecum has pitched better recently, as he has added what looks like he has added a new type of curveball. It is keeping hitters off balance and it appears that some of the old Tim Lincecum has shown itself. If Lincecum can be half as good as he was in the past, the Giants or someone else, could feel the benefits of it.

WHAT A PLAY
Tim Lincecum and his soul patch threw his first career no-hitter Saturday night against the Padres, but Lincecum is going to owe Hunter Pence dinner or naming rights to his first born or something after Pence made a remarkable diving grab to end the eighth and keep the no-no in tact. Lincecum also got some nifty help from Pablo Sandoval an inning earlier. It’s the Giants’ 14th...

Tim Lincecum discusses his first career no-hitter.
Despite Brian Kenny's protestations, a no-hitter is still an event to get excited about, like Christmas morning even after you know Santa Claus isn't coming. The combination of talent meeting luck, as an entire team is stymied by the pitcher and nine men who, for one day, are positioned in just the right way so no hard liners, bloop singles, or slow rollers can find safe...
The Tigers’ bullpen has been serviceable as of late with Joaquin Benoit taking over the closers role while Drew Smyly has been murdering left handed hitters while taking on the 7th and 8th innings. The jury is still out on Bruce Rondon and whether or not he’ll eventually come around but despite things being somewhat quiet for the Tigers in terms of the bullpen there’s still...
