Tim Lincecum ready for what could be his final start with the Giants

Tim Lincecum’s two-year, $40.5 million deal is set to expire at the end of the season and his recent struggles suggest he may not be with the Giants next year.

Pay per head services know that Lincecum won back-to-back National League Cy Young Awards in 2008-09 and helped deliver the Giants World Series victories in 2010 and 2012 but he went 10-15 with a 5.18 ERA last season, setting a career-high for losses in a season, and he is 10-14 with a 4.44 ERA through 31 starts this year.

The right-hander pitched to a 3.77 ERA over a five-start unbeaten streak (4-0) before taking a loss to the Yankees on Friday, when he gave up four runs on five hits and two walks over 6 2/3 innings.

Lincecum did strike out six to surpass 1,500 for his career, becoming the seventh pitcher in Giants history to reach that mark and first since Gaylord Perry in 1971.

He is 9-6 with a 2.93 ERA in 22 career games (21 starts) against the Dodgers, including 2-1 with a 3.86 ERA in three outings this season.
