MLB: Giant's Tim Lincecum Files for Arbitration

By Kristofor Molson     Jan 15, 2010 in Sports
The San Francisco Giants' top pitcher and two time Cy Young Award winner is looking for a huge raise after filing for arbitration on Friday
The San Francisco Giants starting pitcher and two time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum has filed for arbitration Friday which could gain the young pitcher an enormous raise worth millions of dollars. Lincecum has been one of baseball's best bargains and under paid pitchers by earning only $405,000 from the San Francisco Giants in 2008 with a minor raise in 2009 receiving $650,000.
The deadline for players to file for arbitration was Friday and Tim Lincecum is eligible for the first time of his career. Lincecum is the first player to repeat as the National League’s Cy Young winner since Randy Johnson did it from 1999-2002. Tim Lincecum has a record of 33-12 over the past two years and these accolades could earn him almost $10 million or more this year.
