ANAHEIM — Tim Lincecum signed a $2.5 million, one-year deal with the Los Angeles Angels on Friday, giving the injury-plagued team additional depth for their rotation.

The two-time NL Cy Young Award winner is attempting to come back from left hip surgery. Lincecum didn’t pitch after June 27 last year with the Giants — his only other major league team — because of degenerative hip problems.

He had surgery Sept. 3 and didn’t sign with a team after finishing a $35 million, two-year deal last season.

Lincecum’s free-agent deal with the Angels includes $1,175,000 in performance bonuses and $500,000 in roster bonuses. He would receive $25,000 for making 11 starts, $50,000 for 13, $100,000 for 15, $200,000 for 17 and $400,000 each for 19 and 21 starts.

In addition, he would receive $125,000 each for four, 30, 60 and 90 days on the active roster, excluding disabled list days spent due to a right hip injury.

The 31-year-old right-hander 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 Angels, who have 10 players on the disabled list including pitchers Garrett Richards, Andrew Heaney, C.J. Wilson, Huston Street and Cory Rasmus.
