Lance Lynn News
Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Lance Lynn could be utilized by manager Tony La Russa out of the bullpen in Game 4. The team is trailing the Houston Astros 2-1 in the ALDS and they are facing elimination in Game 4, which is set for Tuesday after being postponed on Monday. Carlos Rodon will be starting the game for the White Sox, but Lynn, who pitched Game 1 of the series, could work in a tandem role after him. On Monday, La Russa stated, "Lance was actually in spikes and uniform in the bullpen last night." If the White Sox are able to win Game 4 without Lynn, then he would instead be the likely starter for Game 5. If Lynn pitches in a White Sox win on Tuesday, expect to see Lucas Giolito on the mound for Game 5.
Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Lance Lynn struggled in a Game 1 loss to the Houston Astros to open up the ALDS. The veteran only lasted 3 2/3 innings in the contest and allowed six hits, five runs, two walks and struck out four on the afternoon. The big hurler had a great regular season with a 11-6 record to go along with a 2.69 ERA, but just didn't have his best stuff on Thursday. Manager Tony La Russa pulled Lynn with just 76 pitches and it's fair to wonder if he will be in play for Game 4, if necessary.
Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Lance Lynn (knee) is expected to complete a bullpen session on Friday, according to James Fegan of The Athletic. Lynn, placed on the injured list on August 31, experienced right knee inflammation before being sidelined. Fantasy managers are hoping he can make a quick recovery as he's been pitching some of the best baseball of his career this season. He has a 2.59 ERA with a 27.3 K% and a 1.08 WHIP over 135.2 innings. If manager Tony La Russa is right, Lynn should be back on the mound for Friday's game against the Boston Red Sox.
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.
