NEW YORK — San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum, the former University of Washington ace participating in his first All-Star Game, wound up at a New York hospital this afternoon.
Lincecum was experiencing dehydration and flu-like symptoms, according to a Giants spokesman.
Lincecum was released from the hospital tonight and is resting comfortably, but is not expected to be at Yankee Stadium for the game.
Feeney, a senior vice president of scheduling and club relations, told reporters, "I don't think it was anything major."
Hangovers tend not to be too "major."
Lincecum, who pitched eight innings Sunday against the Cubs, wasn't scheduled to pitch tonight anyway, according to [Bud] Black.
Let's see...first AS Game...all the guys are there...in New York...not gonna pitch...sounds like a good night to get drunk? Just weak that he has to go the hospital afterwards. Goldenchild has lost some of my respect.
