FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Tim Lincecum was yanked early after allowing five runs on five hits and three walks with two strikeouts over just 3.1 innings against the Pirates on Wednesday.

And there you have it, sports fans. After a brilliant five-start run that began with a no-hitter, the fantasy turd that Lincecum is has officially returned. We weren't going to jump all over him after his last start which was a hideous bowl-swirling mess, but now with this latest fiasco, it's safe to say that the run in late June/early July was indeed the aberration while this crap he's offered in his last two starts is much closer to the norm. He'll face the Brewers next week at hitter-friendly Miller Park. You don't want him active. ANALYST: Howard Bender
