Lincecum scratched from start with blister issue


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Tim Lincecum was scratched from his second Cactus League start Saturday because of blister issues.

The Giants right-hander doesn't think the blister, on his middle finger, is serious and his start should only be pushed back for a few days.

Lincecum made his Cactus League debut Tuesday against the Dodgers. Although his line wasn't pretty -- allowing three runs on four hits in 1 2/3 innings -- Lincecum was pleased with the effort as he looks to rebound from his disappointing 2012 season.
