Twins' Lance Lynn: Tosses 6.2 shutout innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (2-4) earned the win Tuesday, shutting out the Tigers over 6.2 innings with four strikeouts while allowing five hits and a walk.

Lynn stayed out of trouble by keeping the ball on the ground, as he recorded 14 groundouts versus just two flyouts. It was just the second time all season he walked fewer than two batters, and the improved command was a very welcome sight, as Lynn entered Tuesday's tilt with an abysmal 7.0 BB/9. The 31-year-old still carries a bloated 6.34 ERA and may be in jeopardy of losing his spot in the rotation at some point if his early season troubles persist much longer, but he figures to be safe in the short term. His next start is slated to come Monday against the Royals.

Twins' Lance Lynn: Can't find plate again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (1-4) took the loss against the Cardinals on Wednesday, allowing three runs on four hits and four walks over three innings while striking out five.

While the strikeouts were at least vaguely encouraging, Lynn was once again unable to locate the ball in the strike zone with any consistency, throwing 46 of 82 pitches for strikes in yet another early exit. The right-hander has lasted six innings in only two of his eight starts for the Twins, putting tremendous pressure on the team's bullpen, and barring a drastic turnaround in his 7.0 BB/9, it's hard to see how Lynn can keep his rotation spot much longer. Nonetheless, he's penciled in for his next trip to the mound Tuesday at home against the Tigers.

Twins' Lance Lynn: Continues early season struggles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn didn't factor into the decision on Friday, lasting just 4.2 innings against the Angels, giving up four earned runs on eight hits, striking out three and walking two as the Twins won 5-4.

Lynn was coming off a strong outing against the White Sox but he couldn't keep the momentum going, continuing what has been a rough start to the season for the first-year Twin. Lynn's numbers through his first seven starts in Minnesota are ugly, as he's now got a 7.34 ERA, a 1.98 WHIP and 25 walks through 34.1 innings. The rough start has persisted to the point where he can't be considered a trustworthy fantasy option until he shows signs that he's righting the ship and getting back to the form that saw him average a 3.06 ERA over his previous three seasons as a member of the Cardinals.

Twins' Lance Lynn: Picks up first win of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (1-3) picked up the win Saturday against the White Sox, allowing two runs on eight hits across six innings while striking out seven.

It took six tries, but Lynn was finally able to secure his first win in a Twins uniform, also tossing his first quality start of the season. After struggling mightily with control over his first five starts -- issuing 23 walks in 23.2 innings -- Lynn was dialed in Saturday, tossing 71 of his 97 pitches for strikes while issuing no free passes, marking the first time all season he didn't issue at least three walks in a start. He's still working with an unsightly 7.28 ERA and 1.96 WHIP, but Saturday was a step in the right direction. He'll look to build off this effort in his next start, which should come on the road against the Angels.

Twins' Lance Lynn: Takes third loss in another disastrous outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (0-3) allowed six runs on seven hits and five walks over five innings to take the loss Monday against Toronto.

Lynn served up six runs for the second straight start and has now allowed at least five runs in four of his five outings this season. Lynn has now walked a whopping 23 batters in 23.2 innings. He threw just 10 first-pitch strikes to 27 Blue Jays hitters on Monday and served up his fourth and fifth home runs of the season to Justin Smoak and Russell Martin respectively. Lynn has an 8.37 ERA and has yet to build any sort of rhythm with the Twins whatsoever.
