Lance Lynn News
Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Lance Lynn (knee) is scheduled to face live hitters on Friday in New York. Lynn has been out all year to this point after having surgery in early April to fix a slight tear in his right knee. The two-time All-Star is making an important step this week, and he could make his season debut in early June, barring any setbacks when he embarks on a minor league rehab assignment eventually. After posting a career-low 2.69 ERA and 1.07 WHIP over 28 starts in his first year in Chicago for his second All-Star appearance, Lynn should be universally rostered and stashed in fantasy leagues for the anticipation of his season debut at some point next month.
Chicago White Sox pitcher Lance Lynn (knee) Lynn is getting close to facing live hitters. According to White Sox manager Tony La Russa, he's a bullpen or two away from facing live hitters. The 35-year-old is on track to return to the mound in early June. He underwent knee surgery just before the started and is ahead of schedule in his recovery. Lynn posted a 2.69 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and a 176:45 K: BB across 157 innings in 2022. Fantasy managers should continue to stash the right-hander as, barring a setback will return to action soon.
Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Lance Lynn (knee) is expected to make his 2022 debut in early June, according to White Sox general manager Rick Hahn. Lynn underwent knee surgery just before the season began and he has been rehabbing ever since. There had been some discussion of a late May return for the 34-year-old over the past few weeks, but that doesn't appear to be in the cards anymore. Lynn had a fantastic debut season with the Sox in 2021, going 11-6 with a 2.69 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP. We'll likely see him sent out on a rehab assignment at some point in the next few weeks.
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.
