SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Right-handed pitcher Tim Lincecum, who was San Francisco's first round selection (tenth pick overall) in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft, was elected the 2007 Harry S. Jordan Award winner in a vote by his teammates this morning.

The Harry S. Jordan Award, which is named for a longtime minor league trainer for the club, is given in recognition of the player in his first big league camp whose performance and dedication in Spring Training best exemplifies the San Francisco Giants spirit.

Lincecum, in Major League Spring Training a year after competing as a collegian for the University of Washington, went 1-0 with a 6.43 ERA (5er, 7.0ip) in three Cactus League outings (one start). The 22-year-old right-hander, who compiled 58 strikeouts in 31.2 minor league innings last year, fanned seven batters against only one walk.

Tabbed as San Francisco's top prospect by Baseball America entering the 2007 campaign, Lincecum showed his immense potential in a March 11 relief stint against Seattle in which he struck out four over three-scoreless innings.

The following players have won the Harry Jordan award:
