Two-time NL Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum has signed a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Angels, the team announced Friday.

According to ESPN’s Buster Olney and media reports, Lincecum’s base salary will be just short of $2 million — a prorated portion of a $2.5 million salary. He also has the ability to earn additional incentives in his contract.

The 31-year-old free-agent right-hander is trying to come back from left hip surgery. He didn’t pitch after June 27 last year with the San Francisco Giants — his only other major league team — because of degenerative issues with his hips. He had surgery Sept. 3 and didn’t sign with a team after concluding a $35 million, two-year deal last season.

Lincecum went 7-4 with a 4.13 ERA in 15 starts last season. He threw a showcase for interested clubs May 6 in Arizona. He hopes to start, and that could happen with the injury-plagued Angels.

Lincecum won the NL Cy Young Award in 2008 and 2009 and made four All-Star Game appearances. He helped the Giants win three World Series titles in five years, and he had a pair of no-hitters against San Diego in an 11-month span during the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
