Yesterday Tim Lincecum held his much awaited showcase, throwing 25 pitches for 20 scouts representing 15 major league teams. By all accounts, it went well. Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports that scouts walked away impressed, with most saying Lincecum was hitting 90-92 on the gun, and one saying he had Lincecum at 93. When Lincecum last pitched in the bigs, in 2016, he was barely touching the high-80s. Feinsand says the scouts were greatly impressed with Lincecum’s physical shape, calling him “ripped.” One source told Feinsand that Lincecum “was probably a little better than I expected him to be,” and that “he’ll definitely get a job, there’s no doubt about that.” Likely a minor league deal, but definitely an invite to a camp.
