Lance Lynn is reportedly set to throw to live hitters Friday in New York, according to The Athletic's White Sox reporter James Fegan.
This will be the first time Lynn has thrown to live hitters since he suffered a slight tear in a tendon in his right knee during Spring Training. He is likely still out until at least early June.
Lance Lynn exited today's game and will miss four weeks with a slightly torn knee tendon.
The veteran right-hander had a career year last year, sporting a 2.69 ERA and 1.070 WHIP, though his FIP was 3.32. The injury opens the door for Michael Kopech to slide into the fourth spot in the White Sox rotation. Currently being drafted at 167, fantasy managers have been waiting for such an opportunity. For those having already drafted, Kopech is worth a pickup to see how April goes.
Chicago White Sox SP Lance Lynn left his start on Saturday against the Diamondbacks early with right knee discomfort. He will be evaluated further later today.
This is concerning news for the ace as Opening Day gets closer and closer. He was seen bent over in pain near the dugout after throwing a pitch before limping into the dugout, so this doesn't look to be a precaution. Hopefully, we'll get some updates sooner than later today about his status.
Lance Lynn pitched five strong innings on Friday, allowing one earned run on four hits and one walk while striking out four batters.
Lynn hasn't been getting his full innings of work since the White Sox locked up a playoff spot so the five innings doesn't come as a surprise. Still, it's a bit disappointing for fantasy managers in championships this week. The start concludes a great season for Lynn, finishing with a 2.69 ERA and 176 strikeouts over 157 innings pitched.
Lance Lynn allowed just two hits in his five innings of work, striking out nine and not allowing a single earned run.
Lynn now has a 2.50 ERA on the year as he attempts to get back into the Cy Young race after a stint on the IL. His next start will be against Texas next weekend.
