    Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants have reached a preliminary agreement on a $23 million, two-year contract, avoiding an arbitration hearing.

    The 25-year-old right-hander said last week he thought the Giants might bring up his offseason marijuana arrest in Washington state during a hearing, but insisted there would be no hard feelings.
