The "Freak" question remains one of the greatest unanswered mysteries of the 2016 season. Okay, maybe just for the week of May 9th.
Lincecum (aka The Freak) last pitched in a major league game on June 27th, 2015. I know, because I was there. As part of my 30 stadium tour, I was a witness on that fateful day last June when Lincecum threw his last big league pitch. He would later be diagnosed with an old person's disease (degenerative hips), and had surgery last September. A surgery than some through would end his career. Of course, it did not.
Last Friday, Lincecum held a pitching showcase (see video below) with 35-40 pro scouts in attendance, and by all accounts was looking good.
It's been reported that Lincecum's choice is down to 3 teams.
The decision will probably come down to 3 factors:
- Strength of contract
- Pitching role
