Lincecum Engages in Baseball Activities

Saturday, August 1

John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reported Lincecum threw 50-60 pitches. When asked whether or not he'll return again this season, Lincecum said"Yeah, definitely. The way things are progressing ... I don't see why not."

Shea also added from Lincecum that he's receiving cortisone shots, has good days and bad and has thrown off flat ground five times.

Manager Bruce Bochy said X-rays on Lincecum's arm were negative June 27, per Pavlovic, who added Lincecum expected to be sore for a few days.

"I was lucky," Lincecum said about not suffering a worse injury, per San Jose Mercury News reporter Andrew Baggarly.

Lincecum allowed three earned runs in 1.2 innings while giving up four hits and walking two before exiting.

He had a rough June, posting a 6.62 ERA in four outings while giving up five runs in less than two innings his last time out against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Lincecum's optimism toward a return is encouraging for a Giants team that just added Mike Leake to its rotation as it continues to make a playoff push.
