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.
