ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Pitching is at a premium at baseball's general managers' meetings, with teams looking to increase depth for the long season ahead.

Pretty much all free agents are going for top dollar this early in the offseason.

Tim Lincecum got a $35 million, two-year contract to stay with the San Francisco Giants, who didn't want him going on the open market.

Outfielder Marlon Byrd agreed to a $16 million, two-year deal with the Philadelphia Phillies this week, a huge increase from the agreement he signed with the New York Mets last winter that wound up earning him $800,000 — including bonuses.
