Tim Lincecum and the Rangers have reportedly agreed on a one year major league deal. By Adam J. Morris Feb 27, 2018, 10:56am CST. UPDATE III — Evan Grant says an agreement in principle is in place between the Rangers and Lincecum .

Tim Lincecum will not be making his MLB comeback this year, at least not with the Rangers.

According to multiple reports, the Rangers will grant the two-time Cy Young winner his unconditional release.

The four-time All-Star signed a one-year, $1 million deal with the Rangers before the season and pitched at the Triple-A level this year.

He posted a 5.68 ERA in 10 appearances and a 1.82 WHIP with 14 hits and nine walks allowed in 12 2/3 innings.

The Rangers had to make a decision on Lincecum by Wednesday on whether to call him up or give him his release, since his 30-day rehab assignment in the minors ended Tuesday. They apparently decided on the latter.

FOR RELEASE : Yes, this is Tim Lincecum at @DrivelineBB. This season, the best-case scenario for Lincecum and the Rangers might be something decidedly un-Freakish: the drawing of a line between his freakish throwing—which came so naturally, until it didn’t—and more classical pitching.

Texas technically will activate Lincecum from the 60-day disabled list and then grant him his release.

Lincecum has not pitched in MLB since 2016 when he was eventually released by the Angels.
