Tim Lincecum won’t be making his MLB comeback this yr, at the very least not with the Rangers.

In accordance with a number of studies, the Rangers will grant the 2-time Cy Younger winner his unconditional release.

The 4-time All-Star signed a one-yr, $1 million cope with the Rangers earlier than the season and pitched on the Triple-A degree this yr.

He posted a 5.sixty eight ERA in 10 appearances and a 1.eighty two WHIP with 14 hits and 9 walks allowed in 12 2/three innings.

The Rangers needed to decide on Lincecum by Wednesday on whether or not to name him up or give him his release, since his 30-day rehab task within the minors ended Tuesday. They apparently selected the latter.

Texas technically will activate Lincecum from the 60-day disabled record after which grant him his release.

Lincecum has not pitched in MLB since 2016 when he was ultimately launched by the Angels.
