The Orioles will be counted among the teams attending Tim Lincecum’s showcase later this week. The two-time Cy Young Award winner will throw Thursday at Driveline Baseball’s facility outside Seattle, allowing him to dive into a flooded free agent market. Executive vice president Dan Duquette indicated earlier today that the Orioles are more likely to sign a couple of veteran pitchers than consummate a trade, though both avenues remain open. The rotation still has three vacancies. Lincecum, 33, hasn’t pitched since making nine starts with the Angels in 2016 and going 2-6 with a 9.16 ERA and 2.374 WHIP over 38 1/3 innings. He won Cy Young Awards with the Giants in 2008 and 2009. “There will be a good contingent at that showcase, from what I understand,” Duquette said while appearing on “MASN All Access.” “Tim’s been working out at Driveline. He’s a big Driveline guy. He’s had some great years. Very colorful player. So we’ll be keeping an eye on that.” The Orioles also remain in the market for a left-handed hitter, left-handed reliever and perhaps a veteran utility player. They have a handful of candidates in camp for the latter position, but could go outside the organization.
