Twins And Right-Hander Lance Lynn Agree To One-Year Deal

Published

on

The Minnesota Twins have upgraded their rotation as one of the last remaining big-name free agents, right-hander Lance Lynn, has agreed on a one-year deal worth $12 million.

MLB Insider Jon Morosi was the first to break the news:

The Twins have not made an official announcement yet as Lynn still needs to complete and pass a physical.

Lynn, 30, essentially takes the roster spot of Anibal Sanchez, who the Twins released today; Sanchez previously signed a non-guaranteed deal with Minnesota last month.

After missing the entire 2016 season due to Tommy John surgery, Lynn rebounded nicely in 2017, going 11-8 with a 3.43 ERA in 33 games/starts for the St. Louis Cardinals.

St. Louis is the only team Lynn has pitched for in his six Major League seasons (since 2011), as he holds a career record of 72-47 with a 3.38 ERA in 183 games (161 starts).

Lynn joins newcomer Jake Odorizzi, Jose Berrios, and Kyle Gibson in the Twins’ expected four-man rotation to begin the season; Ervin Santana is looking at a late April or early May return as he recovers from finger surgery.
