Lynn (6-3) was charged with the loss against Houston on Thursday, surrendering 10 runs (nine earned) on 12 hits and two walks while striking out five across 5.2 innings.
To say Lynn got obliterated by the Astros would be an understatement. The 33-year-old was rocked for a season-worst 10 runs, including homers by George Springer, Alex Bregman and Jose Altuve, bringing Lynn's season home-run total to 13. With the tough outing, the right-hander's ERA rose from 2.53 to 3.32. The only positive note to take away is that he continued his streak of 37 consecutive starts with 100-plus pitches. Overall, Lynn compiled an impressive 2020 campaign, but the surface numbers looked a lot better a day ago.
Lynn gave up three runs on seven hits and struck out five over seven innings in a no-decision versus the Angels on Saturday.
Lynn was decent Saturday, but he exited with the game tied at 3-3. It was the first time in six starts the veteran right-hander didn't issue a walk. Lynn has been fantastic this year with a 2.53 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, 84 strikeouts and a 6-2 record over 78.1 innings. Lynn is expected to make his last start of the regular season Thursday versus the Astros.
Lynn (6-2) allowed one run on three hits and two walks over seven innings Sunday, striking out 10 and earning the win over Oakland.
After Lynn allowed an RBI groundout in the first inning, he silenced the Oakland lineup over the next six frames, allowing just three baserunners the rest of his outing. The 33-year-old lowered his ERA to a stellar 2.40 alongside a 79:23 K:BB over 71.1 innings this season. Lynn will aim for his third straight victory against the Angels on the road Saturday.
Lynn (5-2) earned the win over the Angels on Tuesday, pitching seven innings and allowing one run on four hits and two walks while striking out six.
Lynn entered the contest having lost each of his previous two starts, but he was able to get back into the win column with a strong outing against the Halos. The right-hander needed 114 pitches (72 strikes) to get through seven innings, but a solo home run off the bat of Jared Walsh was the only damage Los Angeles was able to muster against Lynn on the scoreboard. The veteran will carry a 2.52 ERA and 0.98 WHIP into his next start, at home against Oakland on Sunday.
Lynn (4-2) took the loss Thursday against the Astros, allowing six runs on eight hits and two walks across six innings. He struck out seven.
Lynn's outing got off to a rough start with the right-hander allowing four runs on four hits in the first inning. He did settle down a bit after that, keeping the Astros off the board over the next three frames. However, he allowed a run in each of the next two innings to bring his line to a season-high six earned runs. After starting the year 4-0 through seven starts, Lynn has now dropped his last two. The 33-year-old will look to bounce back when he takes the hill Tuesday against the Angels.
Lynn (4-1) allowed four runs (three earned) on five hits and three walks while striking out six across six innings to take the loss Saturday against the Dodgers.
The major damage came on a two-run homer by Cody Bellinger in the third inning. It was Lynn's first outing of the season in which he's allowed more than three runs, though he still managed to turn in a quality start. Despite the slight misstep, Lynn still maintains a 1.93 ERA with a 56:17 K:BB across 51.1 frames. He's projected to take his next turn through the rotation Friday in Seattle.
Lynn (4-0) picked up the win Monday against the Athletics, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks across six innings. He struck out eight.
Lynn fell behind 1-0 in the first inning, allowing a two-out RBI single to Mark Canha. After the Rangers took a 2-1 lead in the bottom half of the frame, Stephen Piscotty quickly tied it up in the second with a homer off the right-hander. The 33-year old settled in after that, keeping Oakland off the board in his last four innings of work. Lynn will take a sparkling 4-0 record and 1.59 ERA into his start against the Dodgers on Saturday.
Lynn took a no-decision during Wednesday's loss to the Padres, giving up two runs on eight hits while striking out six across seven innings.
Making his first start against San Diego since 2017, Lynn limited the Padres' damage to a pair of solo home runs by Jurickson Profar and Fernando Tatis in the third inning. Otherwise, the right-hander did not issue any walks and provided depth into at least the seventh inning for the third time this season, including a complete game during his last start at Coors Field. Lynn will look to defend his shiny 1.37 ERA and 0.81 WHIP on Monday against Oakland.
Lynn (3-0) allowed two runs (one earned) on two hits and no walks while striking out six over nine innings as he earned the win Friday against the Rockies.
Although Lynn didn't get much help from his defense Friday, he kept the Rockies in check at Coors Field. He was dealing with a quad/groin issue for most of the game after covering first base during the first inning, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports, but given that he was able to pitch a complete game after suffering the injury, it's unlikely that it will impact his availability going forward. Lynn will look to continue his dominant season on the road Wednesday against the Padres.
Lynn (2-0) allowed two runs on four hits and three walks across five innings Sunday, striking out six batters and earning the win over the Angels.
Lynn cruised through four shutout innings before coughing up a two-run shot to Tommy La Stella in the fifth frame. The veteran has allowed two or fewer runs in all four starts this season, sporting a 1.16 ERA through 23.1 innings. He'll get a tough road matchup against the Rockies on Saturday.
Lynn allowed one run on three hits and three walks with seven strikeouts in 6.1 innings versus the Athletics on Tuesday. He did not factor in the decision.
Matt Chapman's game-tying solo shot in the seventh inning was the first run against Lynn in three starts this year. Needless to say, the 33-year-old righty has been dealing so far in 2020. He's racked up 24 strikeouts in 18.1 innings, while pitching to a 0.49 ERA and 0.82 WHIP. Lynn will try to get back in the win column at home versus the Angels on Sunday.
Lynn allowed struck out eight and allowed one hit and two walks over six scoreless innings during Wednesday's 7-4 win over the Diamondbacks. He did not factor in the decision.
The 33-year-old missed out on the win since most of the Rangers' scoring came during a five-run seventh inning, but it was another dominant start regardless. Lynn has given up only three hits and six walks while recording 17 strikeouts through 12 scoreless frames to begin the season. He'll look to keep things rolling next week in Oakland.
Lynn (1-0) earned the win during Friday's 1-0 victory over the Rockies. He tossed six scoreless innings, allowing two hits and four walks while fanning nine.
Lynn looked impressive in his season debut and while the four walks might be a concern, he is coming off a 2019 season in which he posted a 2.5 BB/9 and a 10.6 K/9 -- both were career-best marks. The 33-year-old right-hander will aim to build off his impressive debut in his next scheduled start when he faces the Diamondbacks on July 29 at home.
Lynn threw 107 pitches during Monday's intrasquad game, Sam Blum of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Lynn allowed five runs and had trouble getting out of the second inning. He chalked up the rocky outing to throwing pitches he might not otherwise throw because he wanted to work on creating groundballs. Lynn, the Rangers' Opening Day starter, will throw 85 pitches in his final summer camp outing.
Lynn fired six scoreless innings in Tuesday's intrasquad game. He gave up two hits and no walks while striking out eight, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.
Lynn was initially scheduled to throw five innings in Tuesday's intrasquad matchup. However, he was efficient over the first five frames by throwing just 70 pitches, so he was able to get an extra inning of work in. The Rangers' Opening Day starter reportedly threw eight strikeouts while only allowing two batters to reach base in his solid performance.
Lynn will serve as the Rangers' Opening Day starter, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.
Lynn was scheduled to serve as the Rangers' Opening Day starter under normal circumstances, so it was relatively unsurprising when manager Chris Woodward announced Thursday that the right-hander will take the mound in the first game of the 60-game regular season in late July. The 33-year-old pitched a career-high 208.1 innings for the Rangers last year, posting a 3.67 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 246:59 K:BB.
Lynn has been throwing the equivalent of two bullpen sessions per week while awaiting the start of the MLB season, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Lynn, who was poised to be the Rangers' Opening Day starter, is home in Nashville (Tenn.) throwing in a tunnel he built for himself or into a net in his driveway. Once the league and the players' union agree to a re-opening, the loose plan for Texas' starters is to get three starts apiece in a mini-spring training, going from three innings the first day, then building up to 80-85 pitches by the third outing. Typically, starters are up to 90-to-100 pitches by the end of a normal spring training, so expect shorter outings initially.
Lynn allowed four runs on seven hits and struck out four over four innings in Wednesday's spring game against the Rockies.
Lynn ceded runs in three of the four innings during his second spring start. The goal this time out was to work on his curveball and changeup, notes T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com. Lynn threw his fastball 71.8 percent of the time last season, the third-highest usage among pitchers with a minimum of 1,000 pitches thrown. It makes sense that he wants to mix in more offspeed stuff and lower his predictability. "We talked about it all offseason, mixing in more curveballs and changeups," Lynn said. "Today I threw some good ones. Got to keep going. If I can mix in my curve and changeup to get some easier outs, that's the plan. Once I get going and do what I do, if I can have them as weapons, it's going to be good." The right-hander sports an 8.10 ERA over two spring starts with at least another three starts remaining to get his innings and pitch count up.
Lynn allowed two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out three over 2.2 innings in Friday's game against the Angels.
The Angels did all of their scoring damage in the first inning off Lynn, who labored through 30 pitches and was clearly frustrated by that. "I'm not gonna lie, my fastball command wasn't where I would have liked," Lynn told Sam Blum of the Dallas Morning News. The positive news is that Lynn was able to find a groove following the first. The Rangers were hoping to get three innings out of the right-hander, but he hit his targeted pitch count and was removed during the middle of the third inning. Lynn will try to throw 65 pitches when he makes his next start.
Lynn will make his spring debut Friday against the Angels, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.
The Rangers will begin incorporating their starters this weekend, when Lynn is expected to work three innings or about 45-50 pitches. He will be followed by Mike Minor, who will throw a simulated game Saturday, and then Corey Kluber on Sunday. Manager Chris Woodward told Dave Sessions of MLB.com that he expects those three, in some order, to start the first three games of the season at Seattle.
