Tim Lincecum’s professional baseball comeback will take another step Monday as the Texas Rangers right-hander is slated to pitch one inning for the team’s Triple-A Round Rock Express, per a SportsDay report.

The outing represents Lincecum’s initial steps in his injury-rehabilitation assignment after signing with the Rangers on a one-year deal in March. Lincecum sat out the entire 2017 season and last pitched on Sept. 4, 2016 in the Pacific Coast League while a member of the Los Angeles Angels’ Triple-A club.

“I’m definitely looking forward to getting out there and get my feet wet, get a hold of my emotions and all that good stuff,” Lincecum said on Sunday at Globe Life Park. “It’s not going to be anything foreign to me, but I’ve got to get on the bike.”

Lincecum was out the majority of spring training and the start of the regular season due to a blister on his right middle finger. He was placed on the 60-day DL in April and the earliest he can be activated is May 28.

The Rangers expect Lincecum, 33, to settle into a bullpen role once his rehab is complete. Once a dominant starter, Lincecum will need to adjust to being a reliever after only appearing in nine games, eight of them starts, with the Angels in 2016.

In his 10-year MLB career, nine of which were spent starring with the San Francisco Giants while winning two Cy Young Awards, Lincecum posted a 110-89 record with a 3.74 ERA and 1.293 WHIP. While Lincecum may no longer be “The Freak” of yesteryear, the Rangers hope for him to be a positive contributor to the team’s relieving corps once activated.
