Royals' Daniel Lynch: Tabbed for summer camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynch will be a part of the Royals' 60-man player pool this season, Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes reports.

Prior to the Royals drafting Asa Lacy, Lynch was the best pitching prospect in a system loaded with quality young starting pitchers. He is a big lefty with a plus fastball and a plus slider who is coming off an impressive run in the Arizona Fall League. That said, Lynch was likely going to spend most of the season in the upper levels of the minors under normal circumstances, so it's unclear if the Royals will find work for him in the majors this season.

Royals' Daniel Lynch: Likely ticketed for Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynch, who was sent to minor-league camp before the hiatus, will likely open the year at Double-A Northwest Arkansas, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

He dominated in the Arizona Fall League and was in line for a promotion to Double-A last season before he missed a couple months with arm soreness. Considered to be the Royals pitching prospect with the highest ceiling, Lynch is a 6-foot-6 lefty with a big fastball and plus slider. He gave up one earned run on three hits and three walks while striking out three in 2.2 innings this spring before getting reassigned.

Royals' Daniel Lynch: Gets camp invite
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynch will join the Royals for big-league camp this spring, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

Lynch will get to work with the Royals' big-league pitching coaches, though he's probably not yet ready to debut this year, as he's yet to reach the Double-A level. In 15 starts for High-A Wilmington last year, he posted a 3.10 ERA, striking out 23.6 percent of opposing batters while walking 7.0 percent.

Royals' Daniel Lynch: Returns from rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynch (arm) returned from his rehab assignment Saturday but will head to Low-Burlington for now, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

Lynch spent most of the season with High-A Wilmington, posting a 3.09 ERA in 11 starts before landing on the injured list with a sore arm in early June. He'll presumably be back at that level soon but will drop down to Low-A for now.

Royals' Daniel Lynch: Closing in on return to High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynch (arm) is expected to make his next rehab appearance at Low-A Burlington before getting reinstated from High-A Wilmington's 7-day injured list, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Lynch hasn't pitched for Wilmington since June 1 after developing an arm injury that resulted in him being shut down for just over a month before he was cleared to resume throwing again. The prized young lefty has since made three rehab appearances with the Royals' rookie-level Arizona League affiliate, building up to four innings across those outings. He'll likely maintain or increase his workload in his outing for Burlington, which will likely occur later this weekend. If all goes well in that rehab start, he'll get the green light to return to Wilmington, where he posted a 3.09 ERA and 52 strikeouts in 55.1 innings before getting hurt.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Royals' Daniel Lynch: Resumes throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynch (arm) recently started a throwing program, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

Lynch has been sidelined with the arm soreness since early June and is beginning his rehab work after receiving some required rest. The 22-year-old will need some time to rebuild his arm strength before returning to the starting rotation for High-A Wilmington.

Royals' Daniel Lynch: Not scheduled for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynch (arm) is not scheduled to undergo an MRI, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

Lynch exited his previous start for High-A Wilmington due to an apparent arm injury, though the issue isn't thought to be anything overly serious. The Royals believe the soreness Lynch is dealing with is "non-disruptive," and the current plan is to let the left-hander recover with rest.

Royals' Daniel Lynch: Leaves with arm injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lynch left Saturday's start for High-A Wilmington with a trainer after suffering an apparent arm injury, Clint Scoles of reports.

He was apparently shaking his throwing arm after he released a pitch in the second inning. Lynch, a 6-foot-6 lefty, might be the Royals' best pitching prospect. He had a 3.00 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 51:14 K:BB in 54 innings prior to Saturday's start.
