The Dallas Morning News is reporting that two-time NL Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum has reached an agreement on a one-year deal — pending a physical — with the Texas Rangers.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because no contract had been reached. The 33-year-old Lincecum pitched in a showcase for major league teams, executives and scouts earlier this month near his hometown of Seattle.

He hasn’t pitched in the majors since a disappointing nine-start stint in 2016 with the Angels. Texas would likely consider him for a bullpen role, perhaps as a closer.

In 2015, Lincecum went 7-4 with a 4.13 ERA in 15 starts for San Francisco after throwing no-hitters — both against San Diego — in July 2013 and June ’14. He had surgery last Sept. 3 and didn’t immediately sign with a team after concluding a $35 million, two-year deal with the Giants. In nine seasons with the Giants, he helped San Francisco win three World Series titles — in 2010, ’12 and ’14.

Yahoo Sports first reported Lincecum and the Rangers were nearing an agreement.
