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.

The New York Yankees expect to be busy this offseason, as they usually are, and among the teams trying to lure Gerrit Cole to join their rotation.

According to SNY’s Andy Martino, Cashman says that the Yankees will engage with both Houston Astros hurler Gerrit Cole and World Series Champion Washington Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg.

However, Cashman added that the Yankees already have a significant amount of money on the books, according to Newsday’s Erik Boland.

Cashman added that the Yankees will also explore the trade market, much like they did last season when they acquired James Paxton from the Seattle Seahawks, according to the New York Times’ James Wagner.
