More teams are reported to attend to Tim Lincecum's showcase

The Freak will be throwing in Seattle this Thursday

A lot of teams are interested to see if Tim Lincecum still got it, or if he is capable of come back to his former self. According to Jon Heyman of FanRagSports, at least 10 teams are confirmed to attend to Lincecum's showcases this Thursday in Seattle, including sides like long-time rivals Dodgers, Red Sox, Yankees, Tigers and of course, the Giants.

 

Some reports say that the 33 year-old pitcher was able to gain some velocity on his pitches during recent workouts. Even though, "The Freak" is able to convince a team to sign him, it is unlikely that they would offer a place on their starting rotation, as it looks like he's more suitable for a role in the bullpen.

 

Besides the interest in more teams to see Lincecum's showcase, is his former team, the San Francisco Giants, are the favorites to give the pitcher another chance in the Majors, as the team allowed "The Freak" to work out in the organization's spring training facilities in Scottsdale, Arizona during the offseason.

 

During his time at the Bay, Lincecum won two Cy Young Awards and 3 World Series rings, being named an All-Star in 4 ocassions. He was released from the Giants in 2015 and was signed for the Angels for the 2016 season, having a tough tenure with the Halos, with a record of 2-6 and a 9.16 ERA.

 

He has a career record of 110-89, with a 3.74 ERA and 1736 K's
