On Friday night at AT&T Park in a Spring Training game between the Oakland Athletics and the San Francisco Giants, you may have heard the stadium go silent in the 4th inning. It happened when Daric Barton hit a screamer right back up the middle that went off of the left leg, Lincecum’s landing leg when he pitches. Lincecum did his best to stay up and walk it off, but it wasn’t happening, as he would fall to the ground, pointing to the back of his left knee as the Giants trainers tended to him. He was assisted off the field with a man on each side, making an effort to put weight on his left leg as he walked off.

Lincecum says he’s feeling OK but won’t know until tomorrow if he’ll be able to make his first regular season start. #SFGiants

If Lincecum’s out, as Baggs said, the Giants could load up on eight relievers, which means Derek Law could get some big-league time, which would be cool for him. Front office has given hints though that they’d want him to go down once Law’s at the MLB level. So, could Edwin Escobar get called up? I believe he’s the story like Law is, so no to that one. With Timmy’s statement, it looks like we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see where we’re at. So until then, enjoy the last thirty seconds of these Sweet 16 games.
