Lincecum Going Back To Old Mechanics

Aug 15, 2010 11:37 AM EST

Tim Lincecum said he plans to scrap the hands-over-head windup that he used for two starts and go back to his more familiar mechanics.

"I'm just trying to simplify things," Lincecum said. "I think I went too far with that windup. I wanted to stay over my back foot, but it wasn't working. It kind of sped me up more."

Lincecum said he had an encouraging side session after giving up a career-worst four runs in the first inning Tuesday against the Cubs. He also consulted with his father, Chris, who designed his unique mechanics. But they didn't get in depth.

"We haven't been talking much about baseball," Lincecum said.
