Tim Lincecum may have thrown his last pitch as member of the Giants.
The two-time Cy Young Award winner will not take the mound again this year, Giants GM Bobby Evans announced on KNBR 680-AM Thursday morning.
"He won't be able to come back this season, that's evident," Evans declared. "He went to Colorado to see a specialist and get a second opinion and get evaluation with the prospect that he woud have surgery. The next step for him is to do everything he can to come back and get well, but it's gonna take him out for the season at this point."
Lincecum reportedly suffered a setback recently while rehabbing his hip and back injuries in Arizona.
He has been on the disabled list since June 28 after taking a line-drive off his right forearm. Soon after, he was diagnosed with a degenerative condition in his hips.
From 2008 to 2011, Lincecum went 62-36 with a 2.81 ERA, and was an All-Star all four years. He struck out 977 batters over 881.2 innings and claimed the Cy Young in 2008 and 2009.
In 2012, Lincecum went 10-15 with a 5.18 ERA and made only one start in the 2012 postseason -- Game 4 of the NLCS, allowing four runs in 4.2 innings in an 8-3 loss.
He was brilliant out of the bullpen, however, surrendering just one run over 13 innings while striking out 17.
In 2013, Lincecum went 10-14 with a 4.37 ERA.
In August 2014, Lincecum was removed from the starting rotation, finishing the year with a 12-9 record to go along with a 4.74 ERA.
During the Giants' run to the World Series title last year, he made just one relief appearance over 17 postseason games.
Lincecum got off to a great start in 2015: 4-2 with a 2.08 ERA through his first eight outings.
But he went 3-2 with a 7.53 ERA over his next seven starts.
The 31-year old will be a free agent after the season.
"What that (surgery) leads to in terms of his progression health-wise will really dictate what opportunities he has going forward, with us or elsewhere," Evans said.
