Tim Lincecum fell to 5-5 on the year after allowing four runs on seven hits and a wlk with one strikeout over six innings against the Diamondbacks on Friday.
Lincecum recent struggles continued on Friday night, having now fallen to 1-2 over his last five starts. he is now sporting a 4.90 ERA and 1.48 WHIP through his first 15 starts with an unimpressive 77:35 K:BB rate through 82.2 innings. Although fantasy owners can live with his strikeout rate, the other areas of his game are far to inconsistent to make him worth starting on a regular basis. He will look to get back on track when he takes on the Padres next week. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
