Tim Lincecum Contract With Angels Is Now Official
Tim Lincecum has passed his physical with the Los Angeles Angels today and his deal with the team has been finalized.
Tim Lincecum is making his way back to the majors after having a pitching session last week and the Giants and Angels were noted to be front runners. Lincecum likely chose the Angels over the Giants due in part of the team giving him a shot in the rotation as the Giants likely wanted him in the bullpen.
The Angels are currently a mess in their rotation as they are dealing with injuries with C.J. Wilson, Garrett Richards and Andrew Heaney. It is likely that Lincecum will head down to AAA-Salt Lake City to get a couple of minor league starts before getting the call. Lincecum will likely be used as a backend of the rotation guy.
