White Sox's Lance Lynn: Fans seven in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk over five innings in Friday's win over Cleveland. He struck out seven and did not factor in the decision.

Most of the damage against Lynn came in the first inning via Franmil Reyes' two-run single. He later coughed up another RBI double to Jose Ramirez in the fifth. He had allowed one or fewer runs in each of his last five outings but he still hasn't taken a loss since June 19. The 34-year-old righty owns a terrific 2.07 ERA and 122:33 K:BB through 19 starts. Lynn is lined up to face the Royals at home next week.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Does it all in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (10-3) allowed one run on six hits and struck out six over six innings to earn the win over the Brewers on Sunday.

Lynn not only kept Milwaukee in check, he also plated the winning run with a two-run single in the second inning. The right-hander lowered his ERA to a miniscule 1.91 and is 3-0 with a 1.44 ERA in four July starts. With no off-days this week, Lynn lines up to pitch Friday at home against Cleveland.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Solid in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn took a no-decision during Monday's loss to the Twins. He allowed one run on five hits and a walk while striking out four across seven innings.

Lynn technically would have pitched a complete game in the first half of Monday's twin bill but the score was tied 1-1 upon his exit, sending the game into extras. His only blemish of the day came from a solo home run off the bat of Nelson Cruz in the sixth inning. It was the fourth time this season that Lynn pitched at least seven innings. The right-hander, making his first start since signing a two-year, $38-million contract extension Saturday, has put together a strong 1.94 ERA and 1.02 WHIP this season. He lines up to take the mound again on the road Sunday at Milwaukee.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Signs two-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox signed Lynn to a two-year, $38-million contract extension Saturday.

The deal will keep Lynn in Chicago through the 2023 season and includes a club option for 2024. Through 16 starts with the White Sox, the righty has gone 9-3 and posted a 1.99 ERA and 1.04 WHIP in 90.2 innings. Lynn is expected to make his next start Monday against the Twins.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Posts ninth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (9-3) allowed one run on four hits and three walks while striking out six over six innings to earn the win over Minnesota on Wednesday.

Lynn has allowed two runs or fewer in 13 of 16 starts and sports an impressive 1.99 ERA before heading to the All-Star game next Tuesday. Assuming he pitches at the mid-season exhibition, Lynn's first start after the break should come the following weekend.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Earns eighth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (8-3) allowed a run on four hits and five walks while striking out nine in six innings to earn the win over Detroit on Friday.

The right-hander's five walks were a season high, and he also allowed nine baserunners for the third time in his last four outings. In Friday's start, Lynn was able to limit the damage to earn his first win since June 3. The 34-year-old has a strong 2.02 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 99:28 K:BB across 84.2 innings this year. His next start is scheduled for next week versus Minnesota.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Saturday start suspended
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn's Saturday start against the Mariners was suspended in the the bottom of the third inning because of rain and will resume Sunday. He has fanned four while allowing no hits and two walks across three scoreless frames.

Lynn will almost certainly be replaced when the game resumes Sunday, as the right-hander threw 47 pitches (27 strikes) Saturday. Lynn will try again for his eighth win when he takes the ball Thursday against Minnesota.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Roughed up in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (7-3) allowed six runs (five earned) on eight hits and one walk while striking six across four innings, taking the loss Saturday to the Astros.

Lynn surrendered four runs in the third inning to total six runs in his four innings pitched. Despite not letting any balls leave the park, he had his shortest and worst start this season. He at least managed to amass six strikeouts before leaving early in the game. The 34-year-old has a 2.02 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP with a 10.2 K/9 in 75.2 innings. He will look to get back on track in a favorable matchup next weekend against the Mariners.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Touched early, takes loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (7-2) picked up his second loss of the season Monday after allowing three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out eight over six innings against the Rays.

Lynn had a six-game winning streak snapped and lost for the first time since April 15. He was touched for a two-run home run in the first by Austin Meadows, then Brandon Lowe hit a solo shot in the third. It was just the second time in 12 starts that the right-hander has allowed more than two runs. Lynn will carry a league-best 1.51 ERA into his next start, which is expected to come Saturday at Houston.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Posts another dominant outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn did not factor in the decision versus Toronto on Wednesday despite allowing only one run on four hits and no walks over seven innings. He struck out nine.

The right-hander surrendered a second-inning solo homer to Randal Grichuk but otherwise kept Toronto off the board over his seven frames. Lynn has now allowed one or zero earned runs in eight of his 11 starts this season, helping him post a minuscule 1.23 overall ERA that ranks second in baseball behind only Jacob deGrom. He has also registered a 72:17 K:BB across 65.2 innings along with a 0.88 WHIP. Lynn will look to continue his strong start to the season when he faces Tampa Bay at home early next week.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Felt tightness in last outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn said he felt tightness at the end of Thursday's outing, but he should be able to make his next start, Brian Sandalow of the Chicago Sun-Times reports

White Sox manager Tony La Russa said Lynn "had a couple of areas that were barking a little bit," which is why he departed after six innings and 89 pitches -- low numbers for the workhorse starter. Lynn, who sports a sterling 1.23 ERA through 10 starts, appears likely to next pitch Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Earns seventh win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (7-1) allowed one earned run on four hits and two walks while striking out six across six innings to earn the win Thursday against the Tigers.

Lynn held the Tigers in check, with the sole run he allowed coming on a solo home run by Willi Castro. He generated the majority of his outs via the fly ball and also racked up 13 swinging strikes on 89 total pitches. In his last three outings, Lynn has not allowed an earned run across 18 innings while striking out 17. For the season, he's maintained a 1.38 ERA with a 63:17 K:BB.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Wednesday's game postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn won't pitch Wednesday against Cleveland after the game was postponed due to inclement weather, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

Lynn was slated to start on three days' rest Wednesday, but he'll get additional down time ahead of his next outing. The White Sox haven't yet announced their rotation plans for the upcoming series against the Tigers, but Lynn will most likely be pushed back to start Thursday.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Making short-rest start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn is scheduled to start Wednesday's game in Cleveland on three days' rest, Brian Sandalow of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Due to doubleheaders Saturday and Monday, the White Sox were forced to add a sixth starter to the mix, but the team apparently won't be turning to a seventh starter Wednesday, when none of the other rotation members are available on their normal four days' rest. Instead, Lynn -- who worked five innings (82 pitches) in one of the doubleheader games Saturday against the Orioles -- will face a quicker turnaround than usual for his 10th start of the season. Given his relatively light workload his last time out, Lynn shouldn't face any major restrictions Wednesday, though the White Sox probably won't ask him to push past the 100-pitch mark.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Fans seven in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (6-1) fired five scoreless innings, allowing three hits while striking out seven to get the win over the Orioles in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader.

Lynn delivered another gem, allowing only one extra-base hit. Further, he didn't issue a walk for the third time this season. The 34-year-old has allowed fewer earned runs (8) than he's made starts (9). He boasts a 1.37 ERA, which is the second-best mark in all of baseball. He carries a 9.7 K/9 and leads the White Sox with six wins. His next start is scheduled for Friday against Detroit.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Improves to 5-1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (5-1) was credited with the win Monday after allowing one run on three hits and three walks while striking out four over seven innings against the Cardinals.

Lynn was locked in a pitchers' duel with St. Louis lefty Kwang Hyun Kim before earning a victory over the team that drafted him in the first round in 2008. He carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning, when the Cards managed to push a run across, but Chicago's offense eventually showed up, giving Lynn a win in his fourth straight decision. Lynn's next turn in the rotation comes Saturday at home against the Orioles.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Settles for no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn did not factor into the decision Tuesday after holding the Twins to a pair of runs on five hits and a walk while striking out two across six innings.

All of Lynn's damage came off the bat of Miguel Sano, who tallied a pair of solo shots against the right-hander in the fourth and six innings. Otherwise, Lynn held the Twins in check, painting yet another solid outing while leaving the game poised for the win. The 34-year-old has thrown at least five innings in each of his four starts since coming off the injured list, earning three wins in the process. Better yet, across his last three starts, Lynn has allowed only two earned runs. He'll look to continue his success during his next projected start at home Monday against the Cardinals.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Looks good to start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (hand) is listed as the White Sox's probable pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Twins.

In his most recent outing May 13 against this same Twins squad, Lynn came away with his third win in as many starts, but not before taking a comebacker off his right hand during the game. The White Sox sent him in for precautionary X-rays after the outing that revealed no structural damage, so the 34-year-old looks like he'll be good to go for his upcoming turn through the rotation without any limitations. Lynn has been exceptional throughout his first season in Chicago, going 4-1 while posting a 1.30 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 44:11 K:BB across 34.2 innings.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: X-rays negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn underwent X-rays on his right hand/forearm after Thursday's win over the Twins that came back negative, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Lynn was hit by a comebacker in the top of the fourth inning Thursday, but he was able to remain in the game. Lynn allowed one unearned run on two hits and three walks while striking out nine in five innings to earn the win over Minnesota. It's unlikely that Lynn will be forced to miss time since he was able to remain in the game and had a clean X-ray, but his status could be worth monitoring in the coming days. Assuming he's able to make his next start, Lynn tentatively lines up to face Minnesota on the road Tuesday.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Earns win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (3-1) managed to go five innings Saturday, allowing no runs on one hit and four walks while striking out six to earn the win over Kansas City.

The righty was sharp Saturday in what ended up being a stress-free outing. The 33-year-old threw 51 of his 90 pitches for strikes as he struggled with command at times, but manager Tony La Russa gave him a higher pitch count than his previous start given that was his first appearance since returning from the IL. Lynn now has a 1.52 ERA and 0.98 WHIP on the year.
