Lincecum re-ups with the Giants

AN FRANCISCO (AP) - Two-time NL Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants have reached a verbal agreement on a two-year contract worth $40.5 million.

The deal includes a $500,000 signing bonus, a person familiar with the agreement said Tuesday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the terms were not announced

Lincecum had asked for a near-record $21.5 million in salary arbitration and had been offered $17 million by the club. He remains eligible for free agency following the 2013 season.

The 27-year-old, the winning pitcher in the Game 5 World Series clincher at Texas in 2010, earned $13.1 million last season when he completed a two-year deal worth $23.2 million.
