Why Time Lincecum ever stepping on the mound in Texas just wasn't meant to be

ARLINGTON - The Rangers went as long as they could in allowing Tim Lincecum to discover some semblance of his younger self.They were willing to go a little longer, too.What they couldn't do: Find a reliever in their major league bullpen, one of the few areas of the club functioning well, over whom he represented an upgrade.

Signed on March 7 for $1...

Rangers medical update: Adrian Beltre's dusty gloves and Tim Lincecum's situation

The reason: "I've lost my power [to more or less dictate recovery," Beltre said of his second hamstring injury of the season.
