  • White Sox's Lance Lynn: Handed fifth loss

    Lynn (2-5) was charged with the loss in Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Royals after allowing four runs on seven hits with five strikeouts and a walk over six innings.

    He surrendered only two runs through his first five frames, but a two-run home run from Nick Pratto during the sixth inning soured Lynn's outing. The veteran right-hander allowed 14 runs in his final two starts before the All-Star break, but in four outings since he has a 3.43 ERA and 27:2 K:BB across 23.2 frames. Lynn lines up to finish the week with a start versus the Tigers on Sunday.

  • White Sox's Lance Lynn: Strikes out eight in win

    Lynn (2-4) earned the win against the Royals on Wednesday, allowing one run on four hits while striking out eight and walking none over six innings.

    Lynn pitched well Wednesday, throwing 57 of 89 pitches for strikes across six frames and allowing just four baserunners. He limited the damage to one solo shot and did not allow any free passes. The eight strikeouts tied Lynn's single-game high for this season. The veteran righty has struggled to get things going this year, picking up his third quality start in ten games. Opponents have scored four runs or more in half of his starts this season, so this could potentially be a turning point for him. Lynn will take a 5.87 ERA into his next start.

  • White Sox's Lance Lynn: Gives up three homers in loss

    Lynn (1-4) gave up five runs (four earned) on six hits and no walks while striking out eight over 5.2 innings to take the loss in a 7-3 defeat against the Athletics on Friday.

    Lynn's 2022 struggles continued on Friday night against the second-lowest-scoring team. The Athletics took Lynn deep for three home runs, including a couple which came on mistake pitches up in the zone. Lynn didn't make his first start of the season until mid-June due to a meniscus tear, and he has yet to find his groove since returning. The 35-year-old veteran starter has only one win this season to go along with a career-worst 6.42 ERA. He is tentatively expected to make his next start against the Royals next week.

  • White Sox's Lance Lynn: Throws six shutout innings

    Lynn allowed three hits and a walk while striking out six in six scoreless innings in a no-decision in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Guardians.

    Lynn was excellent in his second quality start of the year, but the White Sox's bullpen melted down in the seventh inning to cost him the win. Despite the positive start to the second half, he still owns a 6.43 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 41:10 K:BB through 42 innings in eight outings. The veteran right-hander is projected for a favorable home start versus the Athletics next week.

  • White Sox's Lance Lynn: Allows three homers in loss

    Lynn (1-3) took the loss Saturday, allowing six runs on seven hits over five innings against the Twins. He struck out six and did not issue a walk.

    The Twins hit three homers in the first three frames against Lynn -- Luis Arraez, Carlos Correa and Jorge Polanco all went yard. Lynn has not looked anything like himself since returning from surgery to address a tendon tear in his right knee. He now has a 7.50 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 36 innings this season, with 14 of his 30 earned runs allowed coming in his last two starts (nine innings).

  • White Sox's Lance Lynn: Hammered for eight runs

    Lynn (1-2) allowed eight runs on nine hits and two walks over four innings Monday, striking out three and taking a loss against the Guardians.

    Cleveland immediately jumped on Lynn, plating five runs in the first inning. He then turned in a few scoreless frames before coughing up three more runs in the fifth. The veteran righty has been tagged with 13 runs over his last two starts, ballooning his season ERA to 6.97 through 31 frames. Lynn has given up three or more runs in all but one of his six starts in 2022. He'll look for better results in Minnesota this weekend.

  • White Sox's Lance Lynn: Surrenders five runs

    Lynn allowed five earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out four across five innings Wednesday against the Twins. He did not factor into the decision.

    Lynn allowed at least one run in three of his five innings, with a two-run blast by Jorge Polanco in the fifth frame clinching another disappointing outing. He has worked at least six frames in each of his last three starts, but Lynn has allowed fewer than three earned runs only once in five appearances this season. As a result, he owns a 5.33 ERA across 27 innings on the campaign.

  • White Sox's Lance Lynn: Bounces back Friday

    Lynn allowed three hits and two walks while striking out five over six scoreless innings in a no-decision versus the Giants.

    Lynn has had mixed results since making his season debut June 13, but Friday's start was an impressive one. The right-hander threw 63 of 104 pitches for strikes in a duel with Giants starter Alex Cobb. The White Sox ultimately won 1-0 after scoring in the ninth inning. Lynn has a 4.50 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 22:5 K:BB through 22 innings in his four starts this year. He still has a 1-1 record, which he'll look to improve upon in a projected home start versus the Twins next week.

  • White Sox's Lance Lynn: Struggles in loss

    Lynn (1-1) gave up five earned runs on six hits and a walk while striking out eight over 6.2 innings against the Orioles on Saturday. He was tagged with the loss.

    Lynn's struggles continued in his third start since returning from the IL, and he has now given up 11 earned runs over those starts. The silver lining is that Lynn struck out a season-high eight batters and went fairly deep into the game while throwing 109 pitches. Three of his earned runs came in to score on a bases-loaded hit off Jose Ruiz, who was pitching in relief of Lynn in the seventh. Lynn appears to be completely healthy after suffering a meniscus tear during spring training, so there is reason to believe that the 35-year-old veteran will pitch closer to his career norms once he gets more starts under his belt.

  • White Sox's Lance Lynn: Survives for first win

    Lynn (1-0) allowed five runs (three earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out five across five innings to earn the win Monday against Toronto.

    Lynn showed flashes of brilliance, as he struck out the side in the first inning and also retired seven consecutive batters between the third and fifth innings. However, he still surrendered a two-run homer and a two-run double -- both hit by Teoscar Hernandez. Even so, it was a significant step forward for Lynn as he allowed only six baserunners across five innings after allowing 10 hits in his first outing of the campaign. He's also maintained a 9:2 K:BB across 9.1 innings.

  • White Sox's Lance Lynn: Escapes with no-decision Monday

    Lynn (knee) allowed three runs on 10 hits and struck out four in 4.1 innings, taking a no-decision in Monday's 9-5 win over the Tigers.

    The Tigers got all three of their runs off Lynn in the first two innings, though he was only a little sharper in allowing three hits after that point. This was the veteran right-hander's season debut, so a little rust could be expected. He logged a 2.69 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 176:45 K:BB across 157 innings last year, and he's only once posted a season ERA above 4.00 in his career, so there's reason to be optimistic about the 35-year-old going forward. He's projected to make his second start of 2022 at home versus the Blue Jays next week, as the White Sox are expected to roll with a six-man rotation for now.

  • White Sox's Lance Lynn: Reinstated prior to start

    Lynn (knee) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list prior to Monday's start against the Tigers.

    Lynn will make his season debut during Monday's series opener in Detroit after he missed the first two months of the year due to knee surgery. The right-hander was effective during his first season with the White Sox in 2021, posting a 2.69 ERA and 1.07 WHIP in 157 innings over 28 starts, but he gave up 10 runs in 10 innings during three rehab starts over the last few weeks.

  • White Sox's Lance Lynn: Season debut coming Monday

    White Sox manager Tony La Russa confirmed that Lynn (knee) will be activated from the 60-day injured list to start Monday's game against the Tigers, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    The right-hander was initially trending toward a Tuesday return from the 60-day IL, but he'll be cleared to make his season debut a day earlier than expected, while Dylan Cease will start Tuesday. Lynn made three rehab starts over the last few weeks and posted a 9.00 ERA and 1.70 WHIP in 10 innings.

  • White Sox's Lance Lynn: Tracking toward Tuesday return

    Lynn (knee) is expected to start Tuesday against the Tigers, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Previous reports indicated Lynn could return Monday, but there doesn't appear to be any setback behind the minor change of plans. He struggled in his latest rehab start for Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday, giving up seven runs on nine hits in three innings of work, but the White Sox nevertheless seem to think he's ready to make his season debut.

  • White Sox's Lance Lynn: Could return June 13

    Lynn (knee) will make another rehab start Wednesday and could join the big-league rotation at Detroit on June 13 if all goes well, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    He built up to 62 pitches in his most recent start and is targeting five innings in this next outing for Triple-A Charlotte. Manager Tony La Russa wouldn't commit to a June 13 return for Lynn but said it was a possibility.
