Twins' Lance Lynn: Wins despite five walks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (5-5) allowed one unearned run on three hits and five walks with two strikeouts through five innings to pick up the win Wednesday against Boston.

It was a slog for Lynn, who needed 97 pitches -- just 50 strikes -- to get through five frames. Walks have been a regular issue for Lynn, who has now walked five batters on five separate occasions. Lynn is striking more batters than ever, but it has come at a cost of wildness, as his 5.6 BB/9 is nearly two points worse than his previous career high (3.8 BB/9) set last season with St. Louis. He gets groundballs by the dozens, too, but it's not enough to compensate for the free passes, and despite Wednesday's win, he won't be trustworthy until he tightens up his control. Lynn will take a 4.64 ERA into Tuesday's start against the White Sox.

Twins' Lance Lynn: Unlucky loser in fifth straight quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (4-5) took the loss despite working 6.2 quality innings Thursday against the Tigers, giving up three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out nine.

Lynn gave up the Tigers' go-ahead, two-run homer in the seventh on his 114th and final pitch -- his highest count of the season. Still, Lynn now has rattled off five straight quality starts in which he's posted a sparkling 2,01 ERA with 30 strikeouts in 30.1 frames. The 16 walks he's dished out say he's probably working a bit over his head, but this recent form remains a marked improvement over his first eight starts (7.47 ERA with only two outings with six-plus innings). While he's returned to the tier of solid pitching options in many mixed leagues, his outlook is grimmer for his next scheduled assignment Wednesday at home versus the loaded Red Sox.

Twins' Lance Lynn: Logs another quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn didn't factor into the decision against the Angels on Friday, giving up just one earned run on four hits over six innings, striking out seven and walking two as Minnesota lost 4-2.

The first-year Twin stumbled out of the gate in 2018 with an 8.37 ERA over his five outings in April, but he seems to have settled in lately, as this marked his fourth straight quality start since May 22. His 5.08 ERA and 1.68 WHIP are still bloated, but Lynn has been pretty consistent over his career, and averaged a 3.06 ERA over his previous three seasons as a member of the Cardinals. That track record, combined with his strong pitching in recent weeks, means there's reason to believe those ratios will start to even out more as the season progresses.

Twins' Lance Lynn: Picks up win despite shaky control Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (4-4) came away with the win in Saturday's 7-1 victory over Cleveland, allowing one run on two hits and five walks over six innings while striking out five.

Cleveland hitters weren't able to make the right-hander pay for his free passes, going 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position on the night. Lynn has walked five or more batters five times this season, but he's also provided the Twins with three straight quality starts and four in his last six, lowering his ERA to 5.46 over that stretch -- an improvement of almost three full runs. He'll try to keep his momentum going Friday at home against the Angels.

Twins' Lance Lynn: Beats Royals with quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynn (3-4) allowed two runs on six hits and three walks across six innings to earn the win Monday against the Royals. He struck out five.

Lynn worked around trouble on several occasions and was unscathed other than a two-run rally which included a pair of doubles in the fifth inning. He needed just 91 pitches (53 strikes) to work through six innings but wasn't brought back out for the seventh, though he recorded his second straight quality start. It's been a rough season for Lynn for the most part, but he's shown signs of life of late and will look to keep it going this weekend against the Indians.
