Player Outlook
Is Lance Lynn the guy who one-hit Toronto with 11 strikeouts in early June or the guy who punched out 16 Mariners in mid-June, or the guy who won four of his first five starts with the Dodgers? Or is it the guy who allowed 15 earned runs and six homers over back to back starts against Miami and Atlanta? St. Louis will find out this season after signing him to a one-year, $10 million deal. Lynn finished the season with more than a strikeout per inning, but allowed the most homers we have seen at the big league level since Bronson Arroyo served up 46 homers in the 2011 season. Lynn works deep into games and could benefit from being back in a familiar setting, having pitched the first six seasons of his career with the Cardinals. Busch Stadium is a middling home park and St. Louis had an uncharacteristically poor defense last year. Still, Lynn is pretty affordable for a pitcher who should log 150-plus strikeouts and push for double-digit wins if he regresses somewhat toward his late-career norms.

  • Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Fans seven in no-decision

    Lynn allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks over five innings in a no-decision Monday. He struck out seven in the win over Arizona. Lynn coughed up a pair of runs in the second inning and one more in the fifth. Despite producing only one quality start through five outings, he's sporting a strong 2.81 ERA through 25.2 frames. Lynn produced 12 whiffs Monday, including eight with the fastball. The veteran righty will carry a 26:10 K:BB into his next start, which is lined up to be on the road against the Mets this weekend.

  • Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Picks up first win

    Lynn (1-0) got the win over the Athletics on Tuesday, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits and a walk while striking out one over seven innings. Lynn secured his first win as a member of the Cardinals since 2017, with the only damage against him being a fifth-inning solo home run from Kyle McCann. Tuesday marked just the second time in Lynn's lengthy career he picked up a win while striking out one batter or zero. He's allowed one earned run or fewer in three of four starts and currently owns a 2.18 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 19:7 K:BB in 20.2 innings. Lynn projects to take the mound again next week in a home start against the Diamondbacks.

  • Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Sharp vs. Phillies

    Lynn didn't factor into the decision Wednesday against the Phillies, allowing two unearned runs on one hit and four walks over five innings. He struck out six. After allowing a pair of unearned runs in the first inning, Lynn held the Phillies without a hit over his final four frames, though the Cardinals ultimately couldn't provide enough run support against Aaron Nola to get Lynn a victory. The veteran right-hander has yet to pitch into the sixth inning through three starts this season, though he's held opponents to four earned runs in his first 13.2 innings while striking out 18. Lynn's currently in line to face the A's on the road in his next outing.

  • Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Allows three homers in no-decision

    Lynn did not factor into the decision Thursday, allowing four runs on eight hits and a walk over 4.2 innings versus the Marlins. He struck out seven. Lynn was sharp early, blanking Miami through his first three innings. However, he'd give up a leadoff home run to Jake Burger in the fourth before Josh Bell and Burger tacked on three more runs with back-to-back blasts in the fifth. Lynn struggled with the long ball last year, allowing a league-most 44 homers while struggling to a 5.73 ERA across 32 starts between the Dodgers and White Sox. The veteran right-hander has given up four runs on 12 hits through 8.2 innings in his first two starts this season.

  • Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Survives early trouble Saturday

    Lynn didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 6-5 extra-inning win over the Dodgers, finishing with five strikeouts while allowing four hits and one walk over four scoreless frames. Lynn looked like he could be in for a long night when Los Angeles began the game by lacing three straight singles off him, but the veteran hurler bounced back by striking out Will Smith, Max Muncy and Teoscar Hernandez to escape the jam. The Dodgers put two more runners on base with one out in the second frame, but Lynn again got outs under pressure to emerge unscathed. The right-hander retired the final eight batters he faced but had his momentum stopped by a rain delay, and he didn't return to the mound after the interruption, having already thrown 70 pitches. Though Lynn certainly had some troubles Saturday, this was a positive season debut given the outcome, and it helps instill some hope that he can bounce back from last year's rough campaign during which he posted a career-worst 5.73 ERA.

  • Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Spring debut set for Friday

    Lynn is penciled in to make his Grapefruit League debut Friday versus the Nationals, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Lynn has been working on the back fields so far, giving the Cardinals an opportunity to evaluate other pitchers in spring games. Lynn will don the Cardinals' jersey for the first time since 2017 after signing a one-year deal with the team in November. The right-hander endured the worst season of his career in 2023, posting a 5.73 ERA and 1.39 WHIP with 44 home runs allowed over 183.2 innings between the White Sox and the Dodgers. He'll play most of 2024 at age 37, so it's unclear how much he'll be able to bounce back, though he'll at least have his home games in a pitcher-friendly stadium.

  • Cardinals' Lance Lynn: Returns to Cards on one-year deal

    The Cardinals signed Lynn to a one-year, $10 million contract with a $12 million club option for 2025 on Monday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Lynn could net as much as $13 million in 2024 if he hits his contract incentives, and there's a $1 million buyout on his 2025 option. It's a homecoming for the burly right-hander, as Lynn was drafted by the Cardinals and spent his first six major-league seasons in St. Louis. The 36-year-old finished the 2023 season with a 5.73 ERA over 32 starts and yielded a whopping 44 home runs, but he also had a 191:67 K:BB over 183.2 frames. The Cardinals will be hoping the home run ball becomes less of an issue at spacious Busch Stadium.

  • Lance Lynn: Hits market after option declined

    The Dodgers declined Lynn's $18 million option for 2024, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Lynn will receive a $1 million buyout instead and is now a free agent. Ardaya notes that it's still possible the Dodgers wind up re-signing Lynn, but they would do so at a lower salary. The big right-hander posted a 5.73 ERA and 191:67 K:BB over 183.2 innings in 2023, serving up a league-high 44 home runs in the process. Lynn should still have a decent market this winter from clubs viewing him as a bounce-back candidate -- from 2019 through 2022, the 36-year-old delivered a 3.42 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 10.01 K/9 over 571 innings.

  • Dodgers' Lance Lynn: Set up to start Game 3

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Monday that Lynn is a "safe bet" to start Game 3 of the NLDS versus the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports. Ryan Pepiot will also pitch, perhaps in a piggyback-type situation, but Lynn will take the hill first for the Dodgers. The burly right-hander was inconsistent for the Dodgers after coming over at the trade deadline but did finish with quality starts in three of his last four outings.

  • Dodgers' Lance Lynn: Finishes regular season strong

    Lynn (13-11) allowed two runs on two hits and four walks while striking out four over six innings to earn the win over the Giants on Friday. Lynn struggled in the first inning and allowed an RBI single to Wilmer Flores, who also had a solo home run in the third. Those were the only two hits Lynn gave up as he earned his third quality start in five outings this month. He won three of his last four starts and closes the regular season with a 5.73 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 191:67 K:BB over 183.2 innings across 32 starts between the Dodgers and the White Sox. His ERA was a more reasonable 4.36 with Los Angeles, which should be enough to earn him a spot in the team's playoff rotation during the NLDS.

  • Dodgers' Lance Lynn: Pitches well in no-decision

    Lynn allowed two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out six over six innings in a no-decision against the Giants on Sunday. This was Lynn's third straight win and his second quality start in his last five outings. He limited the damage to a two-run home run by LaMonte Wade in the fifth inning. Lynn is at a 5.83 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 187:63 K:BB through 177.2 innings over 31 starts between the Dodgers and the White Sox this year. He's projected for a road rematch with the Giants to finish his regular season, and he'll likely be in the Dodgers' postseason rotation.

  • Dodgers' Lance Lynn: Earns 12th win

    Lynn (12-11) allowed three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings to earn the win over the Tigers on Monday. Lynn gave up a three-run home run to Jake Rogers in the fifth inning, but that was the extent of the damage. While he's given up 10 homers over his last five starts, Lynn has won three of those outings. He's at a 5.92 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 181:60 K:BB through 171.2 innings over 30 starts between the Dodgers and the White Sox this season. The right-hander is projected to make his next start at home versus the Giants over the weekend.

  • Dodgers' Lance Lynn: Bounces back Tuesday

    Lynn (11-11) allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out three over seven innings to earn the win Tuesday over the Padres. Lynn threw 111 pitches (64 strikes) in a strong start, bouncing back from allowing 15 runs over nine innings across his previous two outings. He still gave up one home run, a solo shot to Fernando Tatis in the fifth inning, but the Dodgers were already firmly in control of the game. Lynn's allowed 41 homers this season, the most in the majors. He's at a 5.94 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 175:58 K:BB through 166.2 innings over 29 starts, though he's been marginally better with a 4.60 ERA over eight outings with the Dodgers. The veteran is projected for a favorable home start versus the Tigers early next week.

  • Dodgers' Lance Lynn: Hit with first loss as Dodger

    Lynn (10-10) took the loss against Atlanta on Thursday, allowing seven runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out one batter over 4.1 innings. The Dodgers gave Lynn a one-run lead after one frame, but the right-hander quickly gave that back -- and much more -- in the second. In that inning, Ronald Acuna tagged Lynn for a grand slam in what ended as a six-run outburst for Atlanta. The veteran hurler gave up just one more run the rest of the way, but he couldn't escape taking the loss despite a valiant Dodgers comeback that fell just short. This was the first defeat for Lynn since joining Los Angeles at the trade deadline, and it was also his shortest outing over six starts in Dodger blue. He's posted a 3.57 ERA and 27:8 K:BB across 35.1 innings during that stretch.

  • Dodgers' Lance Lynn: Knocked around in win

    Lynn (10-9) yielded four runs (three earned) on 10 hits and a walk over six-plus innings Friday, striking out one and earning a win against Boston. Lynn was tagged with three runs in the first two innings but his offense was able to pick him up later in the contest. While it was his worst outing since being acquired by the Dodgers, he's now 4-0 with a 1.70 ERA in five starts with his new team. For the season, Lynn owns a 5.56 ERA with a 170:51 K:BB through 150.2 frames. He's currently lined up for a home tilt with Atlanta next week.

  • Dodgers' Lance Lynn: Continues to thrive in Los Angeles

    Lynn pitched seven scoreless innings in a no-decision against Milwaukee on Thursday, allowing four hits and one walk while striking out three batters. Though Lynn finished without a win for the first time in four starts since joining Los Angeles in late July, the right-hander enjoyed arguably his best performance in Dodger Blue, going toe-to-toe with Corbin Burnes for seven scoreless innings and allowing just five baserunners. Lynn didn't rack up strikeouts as he did in his previous three starts, when he tallied 22 punchouts over 18 frames, but Milwaukee didn't manage to notch an extra-base hit against him. The veteran has appeared rejuvenated since joining Los Angeles, bringing back memories of his third-place finish in AL Cy Young award voting in 2021. Fantasy managers who dropped him during his rough tenure with the White Sox earlier this season are largely ruing that decision now.

  • Dodgers' Lance Lynn: Still undefeated for LA

    Lynn (9-9) allowed an unearned run on four hits and a walk while striking out nine over five innings to earn the win Friday over the Rockies. Lynn worked his pitch count up quickly, throwing 94 pitches (62 strikes) over his five frames, but it was solid work. He has a 2.00 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 22:4 K:BB over 18 innings across his three starts with the Dodgers, a vast improvement on his 6.47 ERA for the White Sox. Lynn's next outing is projected to be a home start versus the Brewers next week.

  • Dodgers' Lance Lynn: Moves to 2-0 as Dodger

    Lynn (8-9) allowed one run on four hits and two walks over six innings Sunday, striking out six and earning a win over the Padres. Lynn faced little trouble while tossing a quality start Sunday. In two outings since being traded to the Dodgers, he's gone 2-0 with a 13:3 K:BB. He's also lowered his season ERA from 6.47 to 6.11 in the process. Lynn coughed up 17 earned runs in just 16.2 frames over his last three starts with the White Sox prior to the trade. His next appearance is lined up to be at home against the Rockies.

  • Dodgers' Lance Lynn: Wins LA debut

    Lynn (7-9) allowed three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out seven over seven innings, earning the win Tuesday over the Athletics. Lynn completed seven frames for the fourth time this year, earning himself a quality start in his Dodgers debut. He'd given up 20 runs (17 earned) over his last 16.2 innings with the White Sox prior to getting traded out west. Lynn is at a 6.32 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 151:46 K:BB through 126.2 innings over 22 starts this season. He's lined up for a road start in San Diego over the weekend.

  • Dodgers' Lance Lynn: Dealt to Dodgers

    The White Sox traded Lynn to the Dodgers alongside Joe Kelly on Friday in exchange for Trayce Thompson (oblique), Nick Nastrini and Jordan Leasure, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Lynn hasn't exactly been at his best this season, holding a 6.47 ERA and 1.46 WHIP through 119.2 frames. However, the Dodgers have developed a reputation for rejuvenating pitchers' careers, so it's not out of the question to think Lynn could return to his old form with his new team. On a positive note, Lynn has been generating strikeouts at a prolific clip -- his 26.9 K% is the third-best rate of his career -- and his ability to eat innings should prove valuable for a Dodgers squad relying on rookie pitchers such as Bobby Miller and Emmet Sheehan, both of whom could have their workloads monitored more carefully down the stretch. Lynn made his final start with the White Sox on Wednesday, so he'll likely be ready to make his Los Angeles debut at some point during the Dodgers' three-game series with the Athletics that begins next week.
