Tim Lincecum passed his physical, making his one-year deal with the Angels official:

Lincecum drew interest from over 20 teams after throwing a showcase two weeks ago in Scottsdale, and was said to be choosing between the White Sox, Giants and Angels as of last week. He will likely go to the minors for a bit before joining the Angels' starting rotation, which has been decimated by injuries.

Neither the Twins nor the Rays have had much success in recent drafts.
