Rangers' Lance Lynn: Stuck with first home loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (12-5) took the loss Tuesday, coughing up five runs on eight hits and a walk over six innings while striking out six as the Rangers fell 9-2 to the Diamondbacks.

It was the first home loss of the season for the right-hander, who came into Tuesday with an 8-0 record at Globe Life Park and a 6-0 record in his last eight starts. Lynn will carry a 3.87 ERA and 140:29 K:BB through 128 innings into his next outing Sunday in Houston.

Rangers' Lance Lynn: Begins second half with gem
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (12-4) picked up the win after allowing six hits and two walks while striking out 11 over seven scoreless innings Thursday night against the Astros.

The All-Star break was evidently kind to Lynn, who blanked Houston through seven frames, but he had to overcome mechanical trouble early after a longer-than-normal layoff. Pitching for the first time in seven days, he threw a first-pitch strike to just four of the first 10 batters and needed 59 pitches over the first three innings, which included working out jams in the second and third frames. Lynn eventually righted himself, throwing a first-pitch strike to 18 of the final 19 batters faced and dispatching the Astros on 51 pitches over the final four innings. The 32-year-old right-hander continues to throw the ball well, as he's now given up just two earned runs over his last three outings (22 innings), and he's managed to collect five straight victories. Lynn will head into his next start, Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, with a 3.69 ERA and 1.21 WHIP with a 134:28 K:BB across 122 innings.

Rangers' Lance Lynn: Likely to kick off second half
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn is expected to start the first game back after the All-Star break, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Manager Chris Woodward tentatively set his rotation for the second half, kicking off with Lynn on Thursday, followed by Jesse Chavez (Friday) and Mike Minor (Saturday). Lynn, who has won four straight starts and five consecutive decisions, is currently tied for the major-league lead in wins (11) with the White Sox's Lucas Giolito.

Rangers' Lance Lynn: Notches 11th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (11-4) picked up the win Thursday after holding the Angels to two runs on nine hits with five strikeouts over seven innings.

Lynn turned in another solid start, scattering eight singles and a home run to Mike Trout to help snap the Rangers' four-game losing skid. The 32-year-old kept his velocity up into the seventh inning, clocking in at 97 mph on his 112th pitch of the game to get a swing and a miss from Trout. Lynn has now lasted into at least the seventh inning over his last four starts. With the victory, he ties the major-league lead in wins and becomes the first Rangers pitcher since Matt Harrison in 2012 to win 11 games before the All-Star break. The right-hander now owns a 3.91 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 123:26 K:BB.

Rangers' Lance Lynn: Shuts down Rays for 10th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (10-4) struck out 10 and picked up the win Friday, scattering three hits and a walk over eight scoreless innings in a 5-0 victory over the Rays.

Only one Tampa batter even reached third base on the night -- Willy Adames hit a leadoff double in the eighth inning, and then advanced to third on a one-out wild pitch before being stranded -- and Lynn's pitch count (112, 73 strikes) was the only thing standing between the right-hander and his second career shutout. He'll take a 4.00 ERA and 118:26 K:BB through 108 innings into his next start Wednesday, at home against the Angels.

Rangers' Lance Lynn: Quality streak ends despite win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (9-4) allowed five runs on six hits and one walk while striking out six to pick up the win Saturday against the White Sox.

Lynn's streak of eight straight quality starts ended when he allowed four first-inning runs, but the right-hander retired 18 of the last 20 batters faced with the help of several nice plays behind him to record his ninth win. Only two pitchers in the majors have more victories than Lynn: Jake Odorizzi and Lucas Giolito each have 10. Lynn looks to join the double-digit-win club his next time out Friday on the road against Tampa Bay. With an off day coming Monday, the Rangers could move him up a day to Thursday against Detroit.

Rangers' Lance Lynn: Strikes out nine in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (8-4) gave up one run on six hits and no walks while striking out nine through seven innings, taking the win against the Indians on Monday.

Lynn only allowed a solo home run to Francisco Lindor while otherwise shutting down the Indians. The 32-year old continued his impressive run with his eighth straight quality start. He has a 2.92 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and a 66:8 K:BB in that span. Lynn will get the White Sox in his next start Saturday at Globe Life Park in Arlington.

Rangers' Lance Lynn: Extends quality-start streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn allowed three runs on six hits and one walk while striking out eight over six innings in Wednesday's no-decision at Boston.

Lynn authored his seventh straight quality start, posting a 3.18 ERA while striking out 57 over 45.1 innings during that stretch. The burly right-hander is tied for eighth in the AL with 93 strikeouts and carries his quality-start streak into his next scheduled outing Monday at home against Cleveland.

Rangers' Lance Lynn: Fans eight in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn gave up two runs on six hits and a walk while striking out eight over six innings in Friday's no-decision against the Athletics.

Lynn got off to a shaky start by surrendering a run in the first inning, but he'd settle down and put up zeros in four of the next five frames to turn in a quality start. While he certainly pitched well enough to win, the Rangers bullpen would give up the lead in the seventh inning. Regardless of the outcome, the 32-year-old right-hander has now delivered six consecutive quality starts and owns a 4.39 ERA with 85 strikeouts across 80 innings this season.

Rangers' Lance Lynn: Wins seventh game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn struck out seven and got the win over the Royals on Saturday, allowing two runs on six hits and zero walks over 6.1 innings.

The veteran ran out of gas starting in the fifth. During the first four innings, no Royals baserunner reached scoring position, but then Kansas City had runners touch at least second base in the fifth, sixth and seventh against the right-hander. Still, Lynn only allowed runs in the fifth and continued to keep the ball in the park. Over his last four starts, Lynn has yielded zero home runs and struck out 33 over 26.1 innings. He is 7-4 with a 4.50 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 77 strikeouts in 74 innings this season. Lynn is expected to face the Athletics in his next start Friday.

Rangers' Lance Lynn: Falls to 6-4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (6-4) took the loss against the Mariners on Monday, giving up three earned runs on seven hits over six innings, striking out 10 and walking three as the Rangers lost 5-2.

Lynn turned in his fourth straight quality start and his second straight effort with double-digit strikeouts, but wound up getting tagged with the loss as his offense didn't provide him with much support. The veteran is in a nice groove at the moment, although a handful of blowups still leave his ERA at 4.66 and his WHIP at 1.39 through 67.2 innings.

May 21, 2019 11:52 PM
Rangers' Lance Lynn: Fans season-high 11 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (6-3) picked up the win Tuesday, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk over seven innings while striking out a season-high 11 in a 5-3 victory over the Mariners.

The right-hander ran up a huge pitch count in the dominant performance, firing 75 of 120 pitches for strikes, so it wouldn't be surprising if Texas found a way to give Lynn some extra rest before his next start -- currently scheduled for Sunday, on the road against the Angels. Whenever he takes the mound next, he'll carry a 4.67 ERA and 60:19 K:BB through 61.2 innings with him.

Rangers' Lance Lynn: Goes seven strong
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (5-3) allowed one earned run on six hits and a walk while striking out five across seven innings to earn the win Thursday against the Royals.

Lynn allowed a leadoff baserunner to score in the first inning but shut down the Royals from there to earn his fifth win. While his 4.94 ERA and 1.43 WHIP aren't particularly strong, Lynn has been able to pitch deep into games and has been fairly effective, recording five quality starts in his nine outings this season. He'll look to turn in another strong start in his next effort, currently scheduled for Tuesday against Seattle.

Rangers' Lance Lynn: Hurt by long ball in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (4-3) took the loss Friday, allowing three runs on six hits -- including three solo home runs -- and a walk over seven innings while striking out eight as the Rangers fell 3-0 to the Astros.

The right-hander attacked the zone, throwing 70 of 118 pitches for strikes, but got a little too much of the plate at times and couldn't afford any mistakes with Justin Verlander locked in for Houston. Lynn will take a 5.48 ERA and 44:17 K:BB through 47.2 innings into his next start Thursday in Kansas City.

Rangers' Lance Lynn: Grabs fourth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (4-2) allowed five runs on eight hits and five walks while striking out three over six innings in a win over the Blue Jays on Saturday.

This was not a strong performance from the right-hander, but the Rangers' offense powered him to another win, his fourth in his last five turns. Lynn is doing a good job keeping the ball in the yard and his walk rate is down overall -- the ERA estimators suggest he deserves quite a bit better. That said, you need not look further back than April 23 for an example of the type of downside Lynn brings to the table (eight runs over 3.1 innings). Lynn gets the Astros in Houston next week.

Rangers' Lance Lynn: Fans nine in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (3-2) allowed one run on three walks and five hits in seven innings Sunday, earning the win over Seattle. He struck out nine batters.

Lynn has been all-or-nothing so far in 2019. Sunday was his second outing this season where he allowed one run and struck out nine batters, but he's allowed seven or more runs twice as well. His 33:11 K:BB is solid despite an ugly 5.45 ERA. He'll look to ride this momentum against the Blue Jays next Sunday.

April 24, 2019 02:24 AM
Rangers' Lance Lynn: Ambushed by A's
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (2-2) took the loss Tuesday, getting hammered for eight runs on nine hits and two walks over 3.1 innings while striking out three as the Rangers fell 11-5 in Oakland.

The A's posted single runs off the right-hander in the first two frames, including a solo shot by Matt Chapman, before the floodgates opened in the fourth. Lynn had lasted at least five innings in each of his first four starts, but this was the second time he's been tagged for at least seven runs, leading to a rough 6.51 ERA. He'll look for a better result Sunday in Seattle.

April 17, 2019 11:36 PM
Rangers' Lance Lynn: Gets the win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (2-1) gave up two runs on seven hits with three walks while striking out two through 5.2 innings in a win over the Angels on Wednesday.

Lynn only forced six swinging-strikes, but he was effective enough to hold the Angels to two runs Wednesday. After giving up seven runs in his first start, the 31-year-old has delivered three solid performances. The right-hander has a 2-1 record and a 4.44 ERA through four starts this season. Lynn will make his next start Tuesday in Oakland.

April 11, 2019 05:16 AM
Rangers' Lance Lynn: Hangs around for win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (1-1) allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out nine over six innings in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

Lynn kept his mates in the game as Arizona starter Robbie Ray no-hit the Rangers through five innings. The bats eventually came alive, putting up runs in each of the final four innings to make a winner of Lynn, who laid claim to the second win by a Texas starter. Lynn's next projected start is Monday at home against the Angels.

Rangers' Lance Lynn: Tough loss to Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (0-1) took the loss Friday as the Rangers fell 3-1 to the Angels, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk over seven innings while striking out five.

The right-hander bounced back in impressive fashion from a rough Rangers debut, throwing 65 of 105 pitches for strikes in his first quality start of the season. The club has a couple off days coming up, but with Edinson Volquez (elbow) now on the injured list, it's not yet clear whether Lynn will stay on schedule and pitch Wednesday in Arizona or get some extra rest before taking the mound Friday at home against the A's.
