article imageMLB: San Francisco Giants ace gets 2-year, $23 million deal

By Matt Harding     Feb 12, 2010 in Sports
San Francisco - San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum avoided a salary arbitration hearing Friday morning by agreeing to a two year contract, pending a physical examination.
The Giants have confirmed that their 2-time all-star and 2-time Cy Young Award winner will be receiving a 2-year, $23 million deal.
Lincecum had originally filed for $13 million through the arbitration process; the Giants countered with $8 million. If his 2010 salary were to surpass $10 million, he would become the highest-paid third-year player in Major League Baseball history.
In three Major League seasons, Lincecum had 40 wins compared to only 17 losses. He also had a 2.90 earned run average, as well as 676 strikeouts. He accumulated these numbers in 598.2 innings pitched.
