Lance Lynn News
Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Lance Lynn picked up the win Thursday after tossing 6 1/3 innings against the Cleveland Guardians, giving up two runs on six hits while striking out six and walking one. It was his fourth win in a row and seventh of the year across 18 starts. Lynn doesn't have the ERA fantasy managers were hoping for, posting a 3.99 mark, but his 1.07 WHIP and 113:16 strikeout-to-walk numbers are dominant. Fantasy managers should continue playing the 35-year-old veteran in every league.
The Chicago White Sox reinstated right-hander Lance Lynn from the bereavement list on Wednesday for his scheduled start against the Kansas City Royals. Left-hander Tanner Banks was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move. Lynn was away from the team for four days, but he'll return to the starting rotation on Wednesday. The 35-year-old overall numbers don't look great, but he's been much better in the second half of the season, going 2-2 with a 2.83 ERA (3.75 FIP) with a .210 batting average against and 48 strikeouts in 41 1/3 innings over seven starts. Lynn is 3-5 on the season with a 5.00 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 83 K's in 77 1/3 innings over 14 starts. He's a good play against the rebuilding Royals.
Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Lance Lynn has endured an ugly 2022 season, but he had a strong day Sunday, earning his third win of the season in a 5-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers. Lynn allowed two runs on five hits and no walks in six innings. He struck out seven batters. Over his last six starts, Lynn has walked just two batters against 40 strikeouts. He has an unsightly 5.62 ERA with a 1.25 WHIP and 69 strikeouts in 65 1/2 innings over 12 starts this season.
Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Lance Lynn had yet another strong season in 2020 with the Rangers, going 6-3 with a 3.32 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 25.9% strikeout rate over 84 innings pitched. His profile was quite similar to what he has produced throughout his career. He relied mostly on fastballs (four-seamer 50.2%, cutter 22.2%, sinker 18.1%), yet once again managed to strike hitters out thanks to a swinging-strike rate of at least 9.6% for each of those pitches. He allowed slightly below-average exit velocity with a career-high 17.5-degree launch angle, yet still managed to outperform his 4.08 SIERA, as he has done for much of his career. Lynn will have a new home in 2021 and will leave what was a surprisingly pitcher-friendly home park in Globe Life Park to a slightly hitter-friendly park in Guaranteed Rate Field, but that should be more than offset by the upgrade in offense backing him up. At this point in his career, there is no reason to think that Lynn will do anything other than what he has done over the past several seasons given his consistency. He is currently being drafted at pick 60 overall, making him the 21st pitcher off the board. He may not be the most exciting fantasy player, but his current ADP seems reasonable given his performance.
