Will Timmy come back?

That's Tim Lincecum, in case you were wondering. 

Chris Haft of reports that a decision is still months away. 

GM Bobby Evans talked about this and a lot of other issues in an Oct. 6 news conference. I was so bummed at how the season had ended that I didn't ready about it until just now....

As of now, Jake Peavy, Matt Cain and Chris Heston would join Bumgarner in the rotation. But that doesn't mean the Giants will proceed as if they have just one opening for a starter. "We have to keep an open mind," Evans said.
Evans announced that center fielder Angel Pagan, who's entering the final year of his four-year, $40 million contract, will undergo right knee surgery Tuesday. Evans said that this procedure should enhance the mobility of Pagan, who ranked 23rd among Major League center fielders in multiple defensive metrics this season, according to
Evans noted that infielder Kelby Tomlinson will report to the Giants' instructional league camp next Monday to begin learning the rudiments of playing outfield, as has been expected. Evans also said that the signing of Cuban outfielder Eddy Martinez isn't final, though an official announcement is expected soon.
Evans addressed a host of other issues, including:
• Retaining free-agent right-hander Mike Leake. Evans indicated that the sides had mutual interest, but the Giants might not act as fast as Leake would prefer.
• Holding onto Tim Lincecum, who's recovering from hip surgery. Evans suggested that no decision could be made until Lincecum regains his health, which won't happen for months.
• Whether to tender a contract to arbitration-eligible right-hander Yusmeiro Petit. "It'll be a hard decision to make if we decide not to tender him," Evans said.
