Angels Tim Lincecum Has Been Designated For Assignment

Tim Lincecum Designated For Assignment

Tim Lincecum only played in 9 games for the Angels this season before they recently designated him for assignment. In those 9 games, The Freak went 2-6 with a 9.16 ERA.

It’s a shame to see this happen to Lincecum, who had been so undeniably good in his early career. For a guy who achieved so much in his career, you hate to see him fall apart at only 32 years of age. I guess some guys just don’t have it in them to pitch consistently over their entire stretch at the professional level.

The Angels have called up Jose Valdez in the process of Lincecum being DFA’d.
