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.

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

Lynn (2-1) returned from the IL to go five innings Saturday, allowing three runs on four hits and two walks with two strikeouts to earn the win over Cleveland.

Making his first start in over two weeks, Lynn limited the damage to two runs in the fourth and one in the fifth before being pulled at only 68 pitches. He had gone for over 90 pitches in each of his first three starts, so manager Tony La Russa was most likely being cautious with his workload in Lynn's first start back from injury.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Reinstated ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (back) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start against Cleveland on Saturday.

Lynn had been on the injured list due to a strained right trapezius since April 18, but he'll return to the mound at home against Cleveland on Saturday. The right-hander made three starts prior to his injury and posted a 0.92 ERA and 0.92 WHIP with 27 strikeouts in 19.2 innings.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Starting Saturday vs. Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (back) will start Saturday's game against Cleveland, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

He was originally slated to return Friday, but apparently the White Sox want to keep Dallas Keuchel on normal rest, so it will be a Saturday activation for Lynn. He has a 0.92 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 27 strikeouts in 19.2 innings over three starts.

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Plans to return Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (back) will throw several bullpens next week and hopes to return to game action Friday against Cleveland, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Lynn has been on the 10-day injured list with a strained right trapezius since April 18, and he reportedly could have been available to return after spending the minimum amount of time on the IL. However, the White Sox have had postponements and scheduled days off recently, so Lynn will have additional time to fully heal before he returns to game action.

April 25, 2021 06:20 PM
White Sox's Lance Lynn: Next start could be pushed back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (trapezius strain) could return off the injured list next week against Detroit or Cleveland, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Lynn is expected to miss the minimum amount of time on the 10-day IL, which puts him on track for Tuesday against the Tigers. However, postponements (Wednesday) and off-days (Thursday and Monday) mean the White Sox do not need to rush Lynn back from the injury.

April 21, 2021 10:32 AM
White Sox's Lance Lynn: To return after minimum IL time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Tony La Russa said Tuesday that Lynn (trapezius strain) is expected to return after spending the minimum 10 days on the injured list, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

La Russa said the evaluation of Lynn on Tuesday was positive, so he's on track to get back on the mound April 27 at home against the Tigers. He looked spectacular to start the season before getting hurt, posting a 0.92 ERA and 0.92 WHIP with a 27:2 K:BB across 19.2 innings (three starts).

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Out with trapezius strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox placed Lynn on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a strained right trapezius.

Lynn wasn't known to be nursing an injury coming out of his six-inning, 10-strikeout gem Thursday against Cleveland, so he may have tweaked a back muscle during a between-starts bullpen session. In any case, Lynn will have to miss at least one turn through the rotation, which was scheduled to come in Cleveland on Wednesday. The White Sox have yet to name a spot starter to fill in for Lynn.
