Lincecum reports he's added pounds
OAKLAND -- Tim Lincecum's able to put a little more on his pitches besides his hand.

Lincecum told reporters from The Associated Press and the San Francisco Chronicle on Saturday that he weighs 167 pounds, representing a 10-pound gain from his season-opening weight. That could account for Lincecum's improvement against Oakland on Friday night, when he recorded only his third quality start of the season. He lasted six innings and yielded three runs and three hits, all in the first inning, as the Giants defeated the A's, 5-4.

The slightly built right-hander has a penchant for dramatic changes in weight. Shortly before Spring Training began, Lincecum said that he weighed 175 pounds after finishing the 2011 season at 187 and bulking up to 196 early in the offseason.
