Giants Have No Plans To Rest Lincecum

Jun 13, 2012 8:26 AM EST

Tim Lincecum is struggling, but the Giants have no plans to rest the right-hander or send him to the bullpen to work out his issues.

The two-time National League Cy Young award winner is winless over his last eight starts. Lincecum also has a 6.00 ERA.

Bruce Bochy met with general manager Brian Sabean, pitching coach Dave Righetti and bullpen coach Mark Gardner to discuss what to do with Lincecum and decided to keep him in the rotation.

"(We) talked about a lot of things, including Timmy," Bochy said. "Just talked about ways we could maybe help Timmy. Really right now the best thing is to keep throwing Timmy out there."
