San Francisco Giants re-sign Tim Lincecum to two-year contract.

The Dodgers were believed to be so interested in impending free-agent pitcher Tim Lincecum, a reporter asked general manager Ned Colletti on Monday whether he was interested in signing Lincecum.

Impending is the operative word, and Colletti declined comment on the grounds that Lincecum was still employed by the San Francisco Giants.

Colletti and 28 other general managers crossed Lincecum off their winter wish list Tuesday, when the San Francisco Giants re-signed the right-hander to a two-year contract worth $35 million. The contract is still pending a physical, and includes a full no-trade clause.

Lincecum, 29, is 9-6 with a 2.92 earned-run average in 23 career appearances (22 starts) against the Dodgers.

The $17.5 million average annual value on Lincecum’s contract might come as good news to Dodgers pitchers Clayton Kershaw and Ricky Nolasco, who are seeking pay raises. No word on that front Tuesday.
