LOS ANGELES (AP) - Tim Lincecum has sought another opinion on his hip to determine whether the two-time Cy Young Award-winning pitcher needs surgery.

He was in Vail, Colorado, on Wednesday to be examined at the Steadman Clinic and discuss the issue with hip specialist Marc Philippon.

San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy says the team would meet with Lincecum upon his return and decide what the next step is.

Lincecum went on the disabled list in late July after being bothered by what the Giants have said is a degenerative condition in his hips. The problem has affected the 31-year-old pitcher’s velocity, and he has already sought multiple opinions in an effort to find a solution.

Lincecum is 7-4 with a 4.13 ERA this season. He has helped the Giants win three World Series titles.
