Giants, Lincecum agree to terms on two-year deal

The Giants and right-hander Tim Lincecum have agreed to terms on a deal that will keep one of the team's most familiar faces in orange and black for at least the next two seasons.

TIM.jpegThe parties agreed to terms on a two-year deal covering the 2014-15 seasons pending a physical, a team official announced today. The date of the physical is still to be determined.

Terms of the deal were not announced, though multiple outlets reported the deal is for $35 million. Lincecum (pictured), the two-time Cy Young Award winner, is 89-70 with a 3.46 ERA in seven seasons in his career with the Giants and went 10-14 with a 4.37 ERA in 2013.

Lincecum was due to become a free agent for the first time in his career. He went 20-29 over the last two seasons but remained adamant toward the end of this past season that he wants to remain a starter for now and did throw his first career no-hitter against the San Diego Padres in July.

The Giants have now taken care of their top two offseason priorities, per general manager Brian Sabean in his end-of-season news conference. The Giants also inked right fielder Hunter Pence to a five-year deal just before the season ended.
