  • Royals' Daniel Lynch: Takes loss despite strong effort

    Lynch (4-12) allowed two earned runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four across six innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Tigers.

    Lynch managed to complete six innings for only the fourth time this season, and for the first time since Aug. 17 -- a span of six starts. He tallied 13 swinging strikes on 101 total pitches, and his only blemish came on a two-run home run by Miguel Cabrera in the first inning. Lynch owns a 4.96 ERA and a 120:50 K:BB across 127 frames for the campaign.

  • Royals' Daniel Lynch: Allows two in no-decision

    Lynch did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits and one walk over four innings against Minnesota. He struck out three.

    Lynch allowed an RBI single from outfielder Matt Wallner to get the Twins on the board in the second inning, but Wallner's RBI double in the fourth wasn't earned as it was preceded by a Minnesota fielding error. The lefty has not impressed in his last seven starts, posting a 6.48 ERA and 1.77 WHIP over 33.1 innings. Furthermore, the 25-year-old has allowed at least two homers in four of his last nine outings.

  • Royals' Daniel Lynch: Fans eight in loss

    Lynch (4-11) took the loss against Minnesota on Thursday, allowing three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out eight batters over five innings.

    All three runs against Lynch came via the long ball, as Carlos Correa launched a solo shot in the first inning and Nick Gordon swatted a two-run homer in the second. Lynch didn't allow a run over his final three frames, but the Royals were able to provide him with only two runs of support. On a positive note, the southpaw racked up 16 swinging strikes and finished with eight punchouts -- his most since June 17. He's struggled to a 5.15 ERA this season, and the long ball has been a problem of late, as Lynch has allowed multiple homers in all three of his September starts.

  • Royals' Daniel Lynch: Torched for six runs in loss

    Lynch (4-10) took the loss to the Tigers on Friday, allowing six runs on 10 hits while striking out four and walking none over 3.2 innings.

    The good for Lynch was that he did not walk any batters, but the rest of his stat line makes up the bad and the ugly. He threw 56 of 88 pitches for strikes. Lynch has had some ugly outings lately, giving up 24 earned runs across his last 40.2 innings for a 5.31 ERA since the start of August. The young lefty has earned just two quality starts this season. His ERA now sits at 5.14 on the season.

  • Royals' Daniel Lynch: Tagged with four runs

    Lynch yielded four runs on five hits and three walks over five innings against the Tigers on Friday. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.

    Lynch cruised through four shutout innings before the Tigers piled on seven runs in the fifth, highlighted by Javier Baez and Willi Castro homers. The Royals lost the game, but the 25-year-old southpaw avoided taking a third loss in his last four starts. Lynch has allowed at least three runs in five of his last six outings and his season ERA has risen to 4.82 in the process. He's lined up for a home matchup with the Guardians next week.

  • Royals' Daniel Lynch: Allows four runs in loss

    Lynch (4-9) took the loss to the Padres on Saturday, allowing four runs on nine hits while striking out six and walking one over five innings.

    Despite striking out six batters and allowing just one walk, Lynch was knocked around for four runs on a Wil Myers two-run homer and RBI singles from Manny Machado and Brandon Drury. Lynch lacked efficiency in the contest, throwing 58 of 91 pitches for strikes across five frames. The lefty has recorded one quality start this season in an Apr. 26 matchup with the White Sox. Since then, he has made it through six innings only one time. Although he has a 3.94 ERA this month, he will take a 4.70 season ERA into his next appearance.

  • Royals' Daniel Lynch: Shaky in short outing

    Lynch yielded three runs on seven hits and four walks over 4.2 frames against the White Sox on Monday. He failed to record a strikeout and did not factor in the decision.

    Lynch worked through three shutout frames before the White Sox broke through with three runs in the fourth inning. The Royals would go on to win the game but the 25-year-old southpaw is still looking for his first win since Aug. 1. Lynch has given up three or fewer earned runs in eight of his last nine starts, registering a 3.25 ERA during that stretch. He'll carry a 4.58 ERA into his projected home matchup with the Padres this weekend.

  • Royals' Daniel Lynch: Gets no support in quality start

    Lynch (4-8) took the loss Wednesday, giving up four runs (three earned) on five hits and a walk over six innings as the Royals were downed 4-0 by the Twins. He struck out two.

    The southpaw didn't allow much traffic but had trouble shutting the door when he did, with a two-out, two-run homer by Jose Miranda in the first inning giving Tyler Mahle (shoulder) and the Minnesota bullpen all the run support they would need. While it barely qualified, the quality start was Lynch's second of the season and his first since late April. He'll take a 4.52 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 91:38 K:BB through 93.2 innings into his next outing.

  • Royals' Daniel Lynch: Throws five scoreless frames

    Lynch gave up two hits and four walks while striking out three over five scoreless innings in an 8-3 loss to the Dodgers on Friday. He did not factor into the decision.

    Lynch held his own against a formidable Dodgers lineup, lasting five innings without giving up a run. He found himself in serious trouble in the top of the fifth with the bases loaded, nobody out and Trea Turner at the plate. Lynch got Turner to pop out before striking out Freddie Freeman and then escaping the jam on a fly out by Will Smith. The 105 pitches were the most that Lynch had thrown this season. Lynch now has a 2.20 ERA over three starts in August to lower his season-long mark to 4.52. The 25-year-old left-hander will look to build on his recent success in his next expected start at Minnesota next week.

  • Royals' Daniel Lynch: Mixed results Saturday

    Lynch allowed four runs on seven hits and struck out six in six innings in a no-decision versus the Red Sox on Saturday.

    Lynch has showed increased control in his last two outings since returning from his second injured-list stint due to a blister. He hasn't walked a batter in his last 11.1 innings. Saturday's start was marred by the southpaw surrendering a pair of home runs, the first two he's given up in his last six outings. Lynch's ERA ticked up to 4.79 with a 1.52 WHIP and 86:33 K:BB through 82.2 innings across 17 starts. He's lined up for a difficult home start versus the Dodgers next week.

  • Royals' Daniel Lynch: Solid in return

    Lynch (4-7) allowed six hits and struck out seven without walking a batter in 5.1 innings to earn the win Monday over the White Sox.

    Lynch had a minimum stay on the injured list this time after a recurrence of a blister on his pitching hand. He threw 54 pitches in his lone rehab start, but he stretched out to 87 pitches (58 strikes) in an effective outing Monday. The southpaw appears to like pitching versus the White Sox -- he's put up 11.1 scoreless innings against them across two starts, and he has only one other scoreless appearance on his ledger. The 25-year-old owns a 4.70 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 80:33 K:BB through 76.2 innings in 16 starts. Lynch is tentatively lined up for a home start against the Red Sox this weekend.

  • Royals' Daniel Lynch: Reinstated from injured list

    Lynch (hand) was activated from the injured list Monday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

    Lynch needed just one rehab start before being deemed ready to rejoin the big club. He will jump right back into the Royals' rotation and take the ball Monday night against the White Sox, who he shut out over six innings last time he faced them April 26.

  • Royals' Daniel Lynch: Tosses 54 pitches in rehab start

    Lynch (hand) struck out six over four innings and allowed one earned run on two hits and no walks in his rehab start Tuesday with Triple-A Omaha.

    The southpaw tossed 54 pitches Tuesday, so he could require only one more rehab start this weekend to get fully stretched out before the Royals activate him from the 15-day injured list. Lynch was placed on the IL on July 17 due to a blister on his pitching hand.

  • Royals' Daniel Lynch: Rehab assignment on tap

    Lynch (hand) will report to Triple-A Omaha on Monday to begin a rehab assignment.

    Lynch landed on the shelf July 17 with a blister on his pitching hand, but he's now healthy and will head to the minors to ramp up before being reactivated. The left-hander won't be eligible to rejoin the Royals until Aug. 1, and it's unclear if he'll require a second rehab outing after Monday's appearance.

  • Royals' Daniel Lynch: Pulled after 3.2 innings

    Lynch gave up three earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five over 3.2 innings in a 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday. He did not factor into the decision

    It was another lackluster performance for Lynch, who gave up three earned runs on only 76 pitches. The 25-year-old left-hander was pulled from the game in the fourth after giving up three singles and a walk in the inning to tie the game at 3-3. Lynch has struggled with control all season long and is walking 4.2 batters per nine frames.

  • Royals' Daniel Lynch: Goes back on IL with blister

    The Royals placed Lynch on the 15-day injured list Sunday due to a blister on his pitching hand.

    Lynch is back on the IL for the second time in less than a month on account of a blister, after he was previously deactivated June 24 due to an abrasion on his left index finger. The Royals haven't specified which digit is bothering Lynch this time around, though he sustained a cut to his left middle finger in his first start back from the IL on July 11. Lynch was ultimately able to make a second straight turn through the rotation in Saturday's game in Toronto, but he failed to escape the fourth inning and may have still been afflicted by the blister during the outing. As a result of his return to the IL, Lynch won't be eligible to pitch for the Royals until Aug. 1.

  • Royals' Daniel Lynch: Cleared to start Saturday

    Lynch (finger) is listed as the Royals' starting pitcher for Saturday's game in Toronto, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

    After a short stay on the injured list due to a blister on his left index finger, Lynch returned to the mound in Monday's doubleheader with the Tigers. He took the hill for the nightcap and worked four innings while allowing three runs (two earned) before departing with another injury to a digit on his left hand. This time around, Lynch suffered a cut on his left middle finger, but he appears to have completed his between-starts bullpen session without any major discomfort. He shouldn't have any restrictions when he returns to the rubber Saturday.
