It looks like the stars are aligning for Tim Lincecum, as his former team, the San Francisco Giants, are reportedly to assist to his showcase on Thursday, according to Joh Heyman of FanRagSports.

"The Freak" won two Cy Youngs and three World Series with the Giants, as he was an important part of the team that achieve those championships in 2010, 2012 and 2014. 

 

But since 2015, his last season as a Giant, things are not going good for the former ace. He had an awful tenure with the Los Angeles Angels in 2016, with a record of 2-6, with an ERA of 9.16 over 38 1/3 IP.

Still only 33 years-old, Lincecum spent the whole 2017 without a team, but it is reported that the pitcher spent last year trying to improve his game in order to come back for the next season. Even the Giants allowed Lincecum to train in their Spring Training facilities in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Besides San Francisco, other teams interested in signing the Freak are the Red Sox and the Mets, but only the Giants are confirmed to attend to the showcase.

The team of the Bay are not strangers to rescue some of their former stars. One example is Pablo Sandoval, who returned to the Giants mid-through last season, after spending three miserable seasons at Boston.

Tim Lincecum has a career record of 110-89, with an ERA of 3.74 and 1,736 K's, being the 4th all-time strikeout leader in Giants history. Besides his 2 Cy Young awards and 3 World Series rings, Lincecum was also named to 4 All-Star games.
