The 31-year-old free agent fired off 41 pitches, hitting 92
miles per hour during an exhibition designed to showcase his
Lincecum went 7-4 with a 4.13 ERA in 15 games for San Francisco
last year but did not pitch past June and underwent a
season-ending hip procedure in September.
He became a free agent at seasonís end.
Despite a decorated career that has included three World Series
titles and four All Star appearances, Lincecum must now prove
himself all over again.
"I was able to throw strikes on my pitches, stay within myself,"
Lincecum told reporters. "To be honest, I feel like I could
pitch for a good five or six more years until I can't anymore."
Lincecum has spent all nine of his seasons with the Giants and
has a 108-83 career record and 3.61 ERA.
San Francisco is reportedly interested in bringing Lincecum back
as a reliever and he is said to have drawn particular intrigue
from San Diego and Baltimore.
"If (a job) leads towards getting to a starter, I would want to
work on that," Lincecum said. "I prefer whichever team needs me.
Wherever, I've got to keep my doors open."
