San Francisco GIants Spring Training: Tim Lincecum Day-To-Day With Back Stiffness

According to CSN Bay Area’s Andrew Baggarly, San Francisco Giants ace Tim Lincecum is seen as day-to-day after being diagnosed by team medical staff to have some lower back stiffness on Tuesday in Scottsdale, sitting out of the majority of his workout at the team’s Scottsdale Stadium training facilities.

Lincecum didn’t throw in his usual scheduled group bullpen session Tuesday morning, instead deciding on throwing on a back field away from the other pitchers under the supervision of head team medical trainer Dave Groeschner.

According to Baggarly the session lasted merely a few minutes before Timmy called it quits with Groeschner accompanying him into the clubhouse for further treatment. Baggs reported on Sunday that Lincecum looked perfectly normal during his bullpen session two days ago.

Hopefuly the Freak won’t miss much time but comes as the second Giants starter to already have back issues, joining Ryan Vogelsong who will miss about another week still with his sore back.
