Tim Lincecum will be pitching for major league clubs on Friday attempting to impress the teams, scouts, managers in his attempt for a comeback in the latest MLB rumors.

The free agent right-hander’s comeback bid is confirmed by the Beverly Hills Sports Council’s spokesman Paul Kuo, which handles Lincecum’s career.

Through the 2015 season, the two time NL Cy Young Award winner Lincecum is credited a win-loss record of 108-83 with earned run average (ERA) of 3.61 with 1,704 strikeouts and 1.27 WHIP. Lincecum is a three-time World Series champion, in 2010, 2012 and 2014 and has made the MLB All-Star game four times, from 2008 to 2011. He is also a three-time NL strikeout leader from 2008 to 2010.

Lincecum is currently a free agent and teams mentioned to be watching his showcase event are the San Francisco Giants, San Diego Padres and Baltimore Orioles plus 20 other teams, according to the MLB Network.

Lincecum, already 31 years old but good for a few MLB years, is coming off an arthroscopic procedure in September last year and has been rehabbing the since then. He is also coming off a two year-deal worth $35 million with the Giants, his only MLB team since 2007 but there are MLB rumors that he could be joining another MLB team this season.

Nicknamed “The Freak” Lincecum will be part of MLB rumors as he searches for his next team in the big leagues. Does the veteran pitcher still have enough left to make a successful return to the MLB?
