The struggling two-time NL Cy Young Award winner was available out of the bullpen for San Francisco in Game 2 of the NL division series against the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday night. His team trailed 1-0 after losing Saturday's opener 5-2.
Manager Bruce Bochy named right-hander Ryan Vogelsong his Game 3 starter for Tuesday in Cincinnati - and Bochy said he already picked a pitcher for a potential Game 4.
Lincecum started Game 5 of the 2010 NL championship series then pitched in relief in Game 6 following a day off. Otherwise, the right-hander hasn't been a reliever.
Bochy called it a tough decision.
