Tim Lincecum is reportedly going to his hold showcase within the first two weeks of February.
"Well we heard all year long it was gonna be in January. The fact that it's not in January, now it's been pushed back into February, is kind of a little bit of a red flag," Giants broadcaster Mike Krukow said on KNBR 680 on Monday morning. "I hope that if he truly wants to stay in the game, he's able to physically, because he really is one of the best I've ever seen come through Mike Murphy's clubhouse."
The Giants selected Lincecum with the 10th overall pick in the 2006 draft.
He won back-to-back Cy Young awards in 2008 and 2009.
In the 2010 postseason, he went 4-1 with a 2.43 ERA. In Game 5 against the Texas Rangers, he allowed one run over eight innings while striking out 10 in the Giants' World Series clinching win.
Over five relief appearances in the 2012 postseason, he allowed just one run over 13 innings.
"He's such an incredible story -- the little guy that stood taller than everybody us -- and one of the most popular Giants of all-time and forever," Krukow declared. "He's always going to be welcome back to San Francisco for what he did for us. Always."
With the additions of Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija, it appears the Giants' starting rotation is set.
It's unclear whether Lincecum would agree to a bullpen role, or if San Francisco even wants him back for a 10th season.
"Will he be a Giant? I don't think the odds are in his favor," Krukow said. "There's not a lot of room. They don't have a lot of room for him in the rotation. Do you trust his command enough to be able to put him in the bullpen?
"It just gets back down to health. What type of velocity does he have? What type of command does he have? These are true concerns because in the past couple of years, he's really struggled with that ... I hope he can play another 10 years and do what he wants to do.
"As painful as it would be to see him in another uniform, he'd still be pitching. And he truly loves the game ... will he be a Giant? I don't know. I don't think so."
