It's finally here, the much-anticipated return of Tim Lincecum to the MLB is about to happen; "The Freak", who was one of the most dominant pitchers during the late 2000's and early 2010's, will have another shot with the Texas Rangers.
The 33-year-old pitcher who recently signed a one-year deal and $1 million, is expected to arrive at the Rangers' Spring Training camp this Tuesday, according to Jon Heyman of Fan Rag Sports. According to various sources, Lincecum will compete for a place as a closer.
The two-time Cy Young winner will have another opportunity to prove himself in a Major League uniform this season, as he didn't play last season after an awful stint with the Los Angeles Angels in 2016, with a record of 2-6, with an ERA of 9.16 over 38 1/3 IP.
Far behind are the times where "the Freak" was the most feared pitcher in the whole league with the San Francisco Giants, where he held a record of 108-83, 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.
