Lynch will join the Royals for big-league camp this spring, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com 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.
Lynch (arm) returned from his rehab assignment Saturday but will head to Low-Burlington for now, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com 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.
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.
Lynch (arm) will began a rehab assignment in the Arizona League soon, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.
Lynch has been out with arm soreness since early June. He's recently finished going through a throwing progression and should be pitching in games shortly.
Lynch (arm) recently started a throwing program, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com 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.
Lynch (arm) is not scheduled to undergo an MRI, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com 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.
Lynch left Saturday's start for High-A Wilmington with a trainer after suffering an apparent arm injury, Clint Scoles of RoyalsAcademy.com 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.
