As it turns out, the San Francisco Giants have re-signed Tim Lincecum, something that he wanted all season long. The deal will reportedly cover him through the 2015 season, and is worth $35 million dollars. Lincecum has full no-trade clause in the deal, and it is pending his physical.

In this past season, Lincecum had a record of 10-14, with 193 strikeout in 32 starts, but he started to look better closing the season. His ERA was 4.37, but right now, he’s lucky to be getting this deal. There was a lot of speculation about whether the Giants should re-sign him or not, and now he has a couple more years to get back into his groove. Manager Bruce Bochy was more eager on focusing on the progress that Lincecum had made.
Lincecum just finished a deal for 40 million dollars over the past two seasons. He was paid 22 million dollars last season, and it was beginning to look like an overpayment. Nevertheless, the Giants decided to re-sign him to this deal, and are looking to do a little better than 76-86.
Will Lincecum help them?
