According to the Boston Globe’s Nick Cafardo, Tim Lincecum will be available via trade after the end of this season.
Lincecum had a down year for the Giants, having a 5.18 ERA over 33 starts. The Giants believe that Lincecum’s struggles were “strictly mechanical.” I find it hard to believe that flawed mechanics are going to make your fastball go from 96 MPH to 92 MPH,...
