Daniel Lynch News
Kansas City Royals left-hander Daniel Lynch (finger) is reportedly set to begin a rehab assignment on Monday with the organization's Triple-A affiliate. Lynch previously made 15 starts for Kansas City this season, pitching to a 5.05 ERA, a 4.24 FIP, 73 strikeouts, and 33 walks in 71.1 innings. He'd also registered three wins for the Royals. The 25-year-old previously went on the 15-day injured list due to a blister. Kansas City's current rotation options include Zack Greinke, Brad Keller, Brady Singer, and Kris Bubic.
Kansas City Royals left-hander Daniel Lynch (finger) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Omaha on Monday. The 25-year-old landed on the 15-day injured list this past Sunday due to a blister on the middle finger of his left hand. While Lynch has made some strides since his bumpy rookie year in 2021, he's still been mostly struggling to keep opposing offenses at bay. Across 15 starts this season, he's gone 3-7 with a 5.05 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP. He's increased his strikeout rate from just 17.7% last year to 22.3% this season.
The Kansas City Royals placed left-hander Daniel Lynch (finger) on the 15-day injured list on Sunday. He developed a blister on the middle finger of his left hand during his start last Monday and he was forced to leave the start. He wound up making his next start on Saturday and the issue either got worse or just didn't go away like the team had hoped. This new blister is unrelated to the blister that forced him to miss time earlier this year. The 25-year-old has made 15 starts this season and he's gone 3-7 with a 5.05 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP.
The Royals debuted some promising arms in 2020 but the best is yet to come with southpaws Asa Lacy and Lynch. The latter pitcher has an intriguing mix of stuff and control to go with excellent pro results to date. Unfortunately, there are also some durability/health concerns with Lynch. After throwing more than 100 innings for the first time in 2018 between college and pro ball, the tall lefty missed significant time in 2019 with an arm injury. The lack of a minor league season in 2020 meant he was unable to build back up and show that he was capable of handling significant innings. Because of these concerns, there is a chance that Lynch could end up pitching out of the bullpen rather than reaching his potential as a No. 2/3 starter. When healthy, he shows four pitches with average-or-better potential with at least two looking like future plus offerings. At 6-foot-6, Lynch possesses an ideal pitcher's frame and an easy delivery so there is a lot to like here if he can leave the injury concerns behind him. The Royals have some starting pitching depth built up so this young pitcher will need some help to find meaningful innings at the MLB level but, when he's healthy, his stuff can rival or surpass that of any of the pitchers on the Royals' current starting staff. He's a strong option in dynasty leagues with a chance to be useful in redraft leagues in 2021.
