Tim Lincecum was scratched from his second Cactus League start Saturday because of blister issues. Although his line wasn't pretty allowing three runs on four hits in 1 2/3 innings Lincecum was pleased with the effort as he looks to rebound from his disappointing 2012 season. San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum was scratched from a start against the Chicago Cubs because of a blister on his right middle finger. The Giants right-hander doesn't think the blister, on his middle finger, is serious and his start should only be pushed back for a few days. Lincecum made his Cactus League debut Tuesday against the Dodgers. A two-time NL Cy Young Award winner, Lincecum went 10-15 with a 5.18 ERA last year and was shifted to the bullpen in the postseason. He had appeared in one exhibition game, throwing two scoreless innings.
