Angels to sign two-time Cy winner Lincecum

The Angels are closing in on a deal to sign two-time Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum, a free agent trying to come back from hip surgery, the Associated Press reported.

Lincecum threw 41 pitches on May 6 for about three dozen scouts representing nearly every major-league club in Scottsdale, Ariz., the spring training home of the Giants. That's the only team the 31-year-old right-hander has ever pitched for.

Lincecum won the NL Cy Young Award in 2008 and 2009 but has struggled with injuries and ineffectiveness since 2012.

RANGERS-JAYS BRAWL: Major League Baseball is expected to announce punishments today for Sunday's bench-clearing brawl. Multiple players face suspensions, including Texas 2B Rougned Odor, who punched Toronto RF Jose Bautista.

OBITUARY: Dick McAuliffe, an infielder for the 1968 World Series champion Tigers, died Friday. He was 76. The three-time All-Star was known for his unique batting stance and 1968 fight with LHP Tommy John.

YANKEES: DH Alex Rodriguez (strained right hamstring) is expected to be activated from the 15-day disabled list Thursday, and LHP CC Sabathia (left groin strain) is set to come off the DL and start on Friday.
