Tim Lincecum will enter MLB spring training looking like Canadian pop singer k.d. lang after lopping off his classic long locks. 

Good for the San Francisco Giants star that fell on hard times last season. It appears he is ready to bring a fresh new look to the season. 

Let's hope his new look brings a fresh start on the bump as well. 

The San Francisco Chronicle's Ann Killion tweeted this picture, which will undoubtedly have Giants fans shaking their heads in bewilderment. 

I was never a fan of Lincecum's old look, so I'm willing to jump on board this hairdo, made famous by every grade school kid heading to school for picture day. 

I would also like to draw your attention to his soul patch, now oddly out of place. If you were so inclined, I'm sure you could count all the hairs. 

My opinion: You don't want to grow a soul patch on a clean-shaven face, unless you are going to start doing some free-form jazz. 

Luckily, we have another angle of the finest haircut in the MLB, via Andrew Baggarly's tweet. 

"Big-Time Timmy Jim" is coming off his worst season—one that saw him toss a 5.18 ERA and a -2.0 WAR, according to ESPN. 

Hope could be on the horizon, and not just in the form of pictures. 

SF Gate reported back in December that the team is hoping extra shoulder conditioning and some extra weight might have Lincecum back on track to start the year. 

If not, then at least he will be looking dapper.
