The Lincicum Watch

What a line for Tim Lincecum in his AAA Fresno season debut:

83 pitches
5 innings
2 hits
3 walks
8 strikeouts
0 runners even close to scoring

With the starting rotation as a strength to the current Giants squad, Lincecum just needs to bide his time at the moment. He's going to be tough to ignore though if he keeps pitching like this and the Giants keep losing.

Other hot starts for the Giants minor leaguers:

Nate Schierholtz is 8 for 16 with 3 homers and 7 RBI in Fresno's first four games
Travis Blackley, acquired from the Mariners in the Jason Ellison trade, pitched 5 innings of two-run ball, striking out 7 for the win
Emmanuel Burriss, ranked as the Giants #4 prospect by Baseball America, has 3 stolen bases in San Jose's first 3 games
Brian Bocock has 6 stolen bases through Augusta's first 4 games.
