UPDATE #1 (11:30am ET): Ken Rosenthal reports (via Twitter) that the agreement is a 2 year, $23 million deal.

As a Super 2, the contract will avoid the first two of four years Lincecum is salary arbitration eligible.


BREAKING: Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News (via Twitter) has said a multi-year deal has been reached between the Giants and Lincecum, pending a physical. Contract details as they become available.


The salary arbitration hearing scheduled this morning in Tampa between Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants has been delayed as the sides work to negotiate a multi-year deal, according to Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports, who cites two different sources.

As a first time salary arbitration eligible player, Lincecum is seeking a record $13 million while the Giants have filed a $8 million offering figure, a record for any club for a first time player.

Reports yesterday said a 3/$37 million deal had been discussed, but that Lincecum's representative, Rick Thurman of the Beverly Hills Sports Council rejected the offer.

More details as they become available
