Tim Lincecum passes a test for Angels with extended spring outing

Tim Lincecum set to have two starts in AAA, then his Angels debut against the Indians

Tim Lincecum was in Tempe this morning to get in a start with the rookie ball Angels, facing the rookie ball Mariners, and it looks like he got a good workout. Tim pitched five innings, throwing 75 pitches in the process, and gave up two runs right towards the end of his day. His velocity was sitting around the 87-91 mph mark, as expected, but he's still got plenty deception and movement to keep batters on their toes. We're kind of getting a more clear timeline now, regarding that landmark day when The Freak make his first Halos start, so there's also that good news. According to beat...

Padres bounce back with a 10-run desert fiesta

The Friars dominate the Diamondbacks 10-3. Let it be known, for every long span of scoreless innings for the Padres there will be a game packed full of runs to follow. Tonight, following an ugly sweep from the Giants, the Pads piled on runs at every turn, and saw yet another solid pitching effort. Christian Friedrich took the Dbacks head on, and emerged victorious. He went a full 7-innings giving up not a single run. In his last 3 starts, he has only given up 3 earned runs. Tonight, he gave up only 3 hits and struck out 5. He threw just over a hundred pitches (104) with over half of them...

What can the Angels expect from The Freak?

With pen finally put to paper, but we can now comfortably start to envision what Tim Lincecum will look like in an Angels' uniform. With 4/5 of their projected starting rotation on the shelf, the Halos were a natural fit for Lincecum in his comeback bid: west coast team, some semblance of being competitive and a guaranteed rotation spot in a pitcher-friendly ballpark. Timmy threw only 76.1 IP last year before his season ended in June with a bum hip. His fastball averaged well under 90 MPH for the first time in his career and he posted his fourth consecutive below-average season. So what,...

2016 MLB Draft: Consensus Rankings, First Draft Board

The 2016 MLB Draft will be held on June 9-11 and can be viewed on MLB Network and MLB.com. Let's begin to take a look at who might be available when the Angels select in the middle of round one. Those of you who were around last year about this time may recall that the 2015 MLB Draft really did me in. After many weeks of careful study of the top few hundred draftables, after reading tens of mock drafts, building composite rankings and offering up tiered recommendations, the Angels drafting brain trust went forth and selected a backup defensive catcher with their first pick. The sort of...
