SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco Giants right-hander Tim Lincecum has left his final exhibition start of the spring with a left foot injury.
Lincecum went down writhing in pain when he was hit in his back leg by a hard-hit grounder from Oakland's Daric Barton in the top of the fourth inning Friday night. Lincecum tried to run toward first but immediately fell to the ground, unable to put any pressure on his foot. He limped off the field with the assistance of two trainers.
The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner is suddenly a question mark with the season opener Monday at Arizona. He was set to pitch Thursday in the series finale against the Diamondbacks.
Lincecum signed a $35 million, two-year contract in late October to stay with San Francisco.
