Tim Lincecum, seen here throwing for MLB scouts in Scottsdale, Ariz., in May 2016, was placed on the 60-day disabled list by the Rangers on Sunday. It gives the right-hander more time to prepare and it gives the Rangers more roster options and protection in case Lincecum struggles to perform during a rehab assignment, which he can start April 28. He's eligible to join the Rangers' roster on May 28.
